Obama: The new war president

"I'm a war president. I make decisions here in the Oval Office in foreign policy matters with war on my mind."
-- George W. Bush

A grim anniversary has just passed.

On March 19, 2003, George W. Bush started his attack on an oil-rich nation that had posed no threat to U.S. security.

And, in future years, the date will carry yet another disturbing significance:

On March 19, 2011, Barack Obama commenced military action in Libya. And so it seems the current Commander In Chief is overseeing more military action on more fronts than his predecessor.

I'll bet George W. Bush is envious.
