While the United States hems and haws over military action in Syria, chef, author and TV personality Anthony Bourdain made his stance clear on The Opie & Anthony Show.

“If we bomb Syria, right, it’s completely against our national interests to do that,” Bourdain said. “It was really not in our national interest to help out in Libya either. That said, I’m really glad we helped out in Libya. That was a cool thing for us to do. You know, wow we’re actually helping people who deserved to be helped. We’re actually doing something for freedom, not for oil.”

Bourdain also went on to discuss his experiences in the Middle East while taping his show No Reservations, “The Arab Spring” and other issues plaguing the region.
