Obama = Bush?

President Bush went to war in Iraq because:

  • Saddam was working on WMD's
  • Saddam was slaughtering his own people
  • Saddam continued to violate UN resolutions over a period of several years.
President Bush developed a coalition of dozens of countries before going into Iraq.
President Bush publicly went to Congress, presented his case and obtained authorization (said authorization is unconstitutional, but not illegal).

President Obama went to war in Libya because:

  • Ghadafi was killing his own people.
President Obama did not go to Congress
President Obama's coalition is substantially smaller than Bush's.

President Obama has justified Bush's Iraq invasion.
