The importance of foreign relations

The U.S. has poured a lot of dough (average of $1.3B/yr) into Egypt and forged strong ties with it's government.

Libya?  Not so.  Only $1 million.  "We don't have personal relations at a high level. As far as I know, President Obama has never even talked to Colonel Gaddafi," said David Mack, a former senior U.S. diplomat who dealt with Libya.

The difference?

Come revolution, bloodshed.
