Obama is the first two term president to be at war every day in office. Is that true? Opinions?
If I recall in March of his first term he got a Nobel Peace Prize. I think it fair to say he inherited conflicts. And that he should get a four year pass. But not for the last four years. I am not a peace at any cost person. But this is an amazing fact.
Yes, that's is indeed the case. And currently the liberal (and neocon) establishment is hell-bent on inciting conflict with Russia, based on the customary fact-free narratives, peppered with the customary blatant lies.
Yes, especially considering the joint resolution for War on Terror. That opens Pandora Box for when that will end.
George W. Bush said to congress and the American people, "Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated."
Tim, I guess sometimes it is the persistence of your enemy that dictates your persistence.
That makes good sense Eric. I once read Sun Tzu 'The Art of War'. Some quotes I looked up; "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” & “The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” I think I will read it again.
I'm not the world's biggest Obama fan, to say the least, but let's give credit where credit is due and place blame where it belongs. The conflicts he inherited he could not easily extricate us from. I think he was wise for not jumping into Syria, because that would have been yet another war we would be stuck in forever. We have this silly American macho thing that makes us think we should police the world, or that we have to export democracy. We don't have to, nor should we, it just makes people everywhere hate us. Also, as Vietnam should have taught us, we never win those wars. Although there are plenty of other sins of commission or omission I pin on this man, I give him a pass on this particular issue.

President Obama was an excellent president because he stood for old-fashioned values, the ones that I learned in school when I was growing up. The way the world sees things these days, old-fashioned values aren't as cherished as they once were. Or, maybe they are! A good example is when he...

According to President Obama "The War On Terror" is over. Do you believe that?That's one side of the story but I wonder if the terrorists know that.
