Inconvenient Truth: Bush Had Twice As Many Coalition Partners As Obama Has

Yes, Bush’s Iraq coalition had double what Obama’s Libya “war that’s not a war” has.  But to put that in perspective, the Iraq thing was not approved by the U.N. like the Libya thing is, plus many of those coalition members didn’t contribute a whole lot or got out pretty quickly.  But still, it’s kinda funny hearing liberals, who huffed and puffed over Bush’s “unilateral invasion,” suddenly supporting a military offensive that is perhaps more unilateral than Bush’s.

The proof, below the fold:
