Obama Beats Bush In Bombings

I've given Obama credit here before for at least seeming to resist the siren song of war, earlier on, anyway. Just noticed this article that points out that Obama has actually bombed more countries than Bush. Who'da thunk? Except it could be just a natural progression and whoever is in the White House next will beat them both?

Oh, the list, for those that don't want to follow the link?

Bush: Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen
Obama: Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Iraq (again) and Syria
And just something I've been trying to avoid bringing up here: This crap in Syria with us worried the Soviets are going to intercede and help Assad is ridiculous. We should applaud the Russians if they want to help Assad. 

We've seen what happened to the two countries whose dictators were removed and killed.  Things would likely be much better over there if we'd left things alone. I'm not saying we militarily support Assad, but we certainly shouldn't be helping those trying to depose him. Let's hope the Russians do go in, although how much help they'll be is anyone's guess.

This current policy of us attacking both sides- ISIS and Assad- is downright schizoid, and I'll give Obama the lion's share of the credit for it.

A lot of what Obama bombed was were Bush had neglected to finish his petty wars.

You forgot one. Bush bombed the USA(NYC) on 9/11 with the help of his Saudi friends. Which led to most of the other bombings mentioned.

Also, Bush bombed Somalia. Not just Obama.

They think leaving it alone it will heal itself,not so it will just get progressively worse.

Leaving what alone? What won't heal itself? What will get progressively worse? Talk about a vague sentence!!!
