Myrick skeptical about U.S. involvement in Libya

Back in the 1980s, covert operations by the US military to help spread Democracy around the world were the cornerstone of Conservative ideals. Even in the early 2000s, as George W. Bush pushed for a war in Iraq that was based on faulty evidence, the GOP applauded the effort and supported the war fully.
