Wars against six countries during Obama presidency
If I could publicly ask our beloved president one question, it would be this: “Mr. President, in your short time in office you’ve waged war against six countries — Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen and Libya.
“This makes me wonder something. With all due respect: What is wrong with you?”
It should be noted that, as of June 30, NATO had flown 13,184 air missions (sorties) over Libya, 4,963 of which are described as strike sorties.
If any foreign power fired missiles at the United States, would Barack Obama regard that as an act of war?
If the US firing hundreds of missiles at Libya is not an act of war, as Obama insists (to avoid having to declare war as required by US law), then the deaths resulting from the missile attacks are murder. That’s it.
It’s either war or murder. To the extent there’s a difference between the two.
