I didn't know that.  What were they?

Obama STARTED the war in Iraq and Libya?

They are referring to the war against ISIS.

I'm pretty sure ISIS are the ones who picked the fight.  Should Obama have just done nothing?  Are you upset he killed Osama Bin Laden?

Strawman arguments, all - forgive me.

You get the point.

It's just a listing of conflicts which American presidents decided to get involved in.

Presidents, political parties, and people in the media always have reasons.  Sometimes you like those reasons.   Sometimes you don't.  I have a feeling it's based entirely on party affiliation.

I'm sure that oil was the biggest factor in Bush II's Iraq invasion (which I opposed from before it began).

These days the U.S. doesn't need oil (it's an exporter), although many of its allies and enemies do, which is the rationale for a military presence in the Gulf.

The war on ISIS had nothing to do with any of this.  But you know that.

Also, as the world moves more towards sustainable energy sources, oil is having less of an effect on global policies, and tin pot dictators are losing their power.

When we no longer need it at all, many of these Middle Eastern countries will find themselves having to sort out their own problems.
