Default Odyssey Dawn Is World's Smallest Coalition

Here's Reuters yesterday...You know...an OBJECTIVE news outlet?...

Quote:
Obama is committed to partnering with other countries rather than going it alone as did his predecessor George W. Bush, which both broadens and complicates the decision-making process.
MYTH acheived...

Foreign Policy.com charted the countries in "coalitions" for the last 5 wars...

Obama's "coalition" is the smallest...

Quote:
Desert Storm and Desert Shield (1990-1991) - Total number of countries = 32

Joint Endeavor -- Bosnia (1995-1996)
(UNSCR 1031 enforcement)
(NATOauthorized)
(IFOR participation) - Total number of countries = 34

Allied Force -- Kosovo (1999)
(NATO-authorized) - Total number of countries = 19

Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan (2001--
(NATO-authorized)
(ISAF participation) - Total number of countries = 48

Iraqi Freedom (2003 – 2009)
(MNF-I participation) - Total number of countries = 40

Odyssey Dawn
Libya (2011 --
(UNSCR 1973
enforcement) - Total number of countries = 15
Bush had almost THREE TIMES the number of countries on board for Iraq than Obama does in Libya...

But you're supposed to believe Bush went it alone...and Obama has the world's support...

Mr Obama has support from the US press, Mr Bush didn't.
That's the difference between "going it alone" and "world support" in the US.
