    U.S. President Barack Obama said Thursday he'd authorized targeted airstrikes in Iraq to protect American personnel.

    "When we have the unique capabilities to help avert a massacre, then I believe the United States of America cannot turn a blind eye," Obama said Thursday about Iraq.

    Ah, targeted airstrikes, so not just tossing ordinance in at random then. Glad they made that clear.

    If people are ok with this and gave bush shit, then I just don't know. Bush lied about wmds, but I thought Obama was above just going to war with nations, it's all about diplomacy right?

    None. Although he wanted to entangle the US in Syria. He also increased drone bombings in Pakistan and Yemen, sent troops into Sub-Saharan Africa, involved the US in Libya...which toppled the firmly anti-Al Qaeda Qaddafi regime, allowing AQ and AQ linked groups to raid the country's arsenal and get their hands on thousands of surface to air missiles. He grew the war in Afghanistan by 30,000+ troops, promised billions in military aid in to EU/NATO nations after the Ukraine implosion and asked Congress to give half a billion to anti-Assad forces in Syria.

    And yeah, under Obama "we" pulled out of Iraq. But not without leaving tens of thousands of America PMCs who operated without having to adhere to US laws or the Geneva Convention. And Obama's State and Justice department continued efforts to arm Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel.

    But, other than that, he's a regular peacenik.

    Technically, LBJ didn't start any wars either. Neither did Truman. Technically.

    You have a rather limited vocabulary! That's probably why you believe in fairy tales! TALK LIKE A FUCKING MAN!

    You just hurt my brain. Ill have to do some research and get back to you on that. I'm not as smart as you. And I'm dead tired. I'll take notes, check reddit and get back to you. I got this though. He captured OSB. If you give him credit for all of the above at least that mission was accomplished.( ;
    Going to stick to I hate beth threads. Where we all get along.
