    Again...something that W Bush would have done exactly the same. Unfortunately drone use wasn't nearly as advanced or prevalent as it was under Obama. Kinda like giving credit to Bill Clinton for the internet boom in the 90's, even though the internet barely existed prior to his administration.


    Yet people condemned W Bush for his surges.


    How was Libya a threat to the USA?
    doesn't matter Obama signed off on all these which goes against your original point that the Obama administration is passive.

    He signed off on killing Bin Laden, because it would be a political disaster if he hadn't.

    Obama is using NK to prime the pump of public fear so when we do attack Iran it won't look like he is taking his orders from Israel. They are pre-framing the argument as bold leadership against nuclear proliferation. It isn't like NK hasn't been doing this same crap since 2006.

    it was also a massive risk considering they never had an actual visual of Bin Laden or any solid intelligence he was going to be in the compound. Obama signed off on it anyway and didn't even tell Pakistan a nuclear armed country that they would be invading their airspace. Took balls no matter how you cut it.

    We're not at war yet. Then again, we weren't at war with Iraq at some point in time. We weren't drone bombing Pakistan at earlier timelines either. So obviously the situation can change and governments can push towards war. So if you're done with stupid arguments that a 1st grader would come up with; please let's move on. Next time, please think before opening your pie hole.

    Ah right. Of course. Your predictions just haven't come to pass YET. Any minute now, no doubt.

    Exclusive: U.S. and North Korea held secret meeting in March | The Cable

    Apparently Washington met with the North Koreans last month.

    Pretend the government doesn't like war at the detriment to our freedom. I'd rather pay attention.

    Pay attention to what? Reality? Or an Orwellian piece of fiction?

    Every conspiracy theorist fancies himself enlightened to the one true horror of the world. The great irony is that they are the deceived.
