That would include George W. Bush, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon and even Abraham Lincoln who oversaw America’s civil war.
“If the United States remains in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria until the end of Mr. Obama’s term — a near-certainty given the president’s recent announcement that he will send 250 additional Special Operations forces to Syria — he will leave behind an improbable legacy as the only president in American history to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.”
This eight-year record of death and destruction comes from a man who ran in 2008 as an antiwar candidate and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.
Promptly after this sham award, Obama heeded the calls of warmongers such as John McCain and sent 30,000 additional troops into Afghanistan in the infamous “surge.” After Bush invaded that country in response to 9/11, seven years of military occupation was not enough for the U.S. military to declare “victory.”
Obama announced in 2014 that he would withdraw the last combat soldier from Afghanistan by the end of 2016, but the withdrawal was halted, and 5,000 troops will remain until at least 2017.
