    Obama will be gone in 2017 because of the Twenty-second Amendment(Unless the GOP congress amends that to keep him.).

    It looks like Hillary Clinton will be the next president.I don't believe that I've ever heard her described as a War-Hawk.

    Neither Churchill or Roosevelt wanted WWII, but they both did a good job leading their countries through it.

    Did you hear Obama described as a War Hawk? Do you think he is who the Nobel people had in mind when they gave him their prize for the good fortune of being black and elected?

    Did Obama invade any countries the day after he moved into the White House?

    I don't recall that happening.

    Obama carried out the Bush policies and massively expanded the use of drone strikes. Against the expressed will of his party and without seeking approval he has prosecuted an air war against ISIS (Something I approve of BTW). Forget about the expansion of intrusions into personal privacy in the name of national security.

    He didn't invade, but he is responsible for the mess that is Libya. Plus he has killed a lot of people in that "success story" that is Yemen to have no role in the collapse of that nation. If you toss Syria and Iraq into the mix, the ME is certainly in far worse shape than it was when he took office. Now, I am not sure what a 'war hawk' is other than a slur against people the OP disagrees with, but leading from behind hasn't worked out so well.

    I think we need someone who will roll up there sleeves and deal with Russia, Ukraine, the Mid-East, ISIS and North Africa. Each one of these areas plus a few other issues like Domestic Terrorism in Europe are some of Obama's failures. Foreign Policy used to be his strong suit. Not anymore!

    How many of you agree with me that we need a war-hawk as President? And no. I am not talking about Hillary.
    That's funny, I don't ever remember FP being Obama's strong point. And no, the very last thing we need is more warmongers running things. The polling to your question is encouraging.

    I can't take anyone seriously who actually says "bring our boys home". This isn't World War Two where you had a bunch of 16 year olds fighting or Vietnam where you had a bunch of 18 year olds.

    The average age of soldiers who died in Iraq was 30. Certainly not "boys". And all volunteers who presumably WANT to be in the military.

    That is exactly correct as I see it.

    "Deal with" meaning launch shooting wars against Russia, Iran, and anyone else causing trouble in the world all at the same time?

    No, I'd rather see a rational person in the White House, whether or not I agree with all of his/her policies.

    Did the U.S. congress take any action on the AUMF against ISIS/ISIL that Obama asked for?
