try to understand the 'take' many here on ATS have on this issue but I'm still conflicted as to who the good guys are in that part of the world.

Which President are you talking about? I am completely missing the reference.
Not the republican!
The one who acts worse and has a different title before his name; you know, the latest sock puppet in chief.
If your suggestion Obama has started more wars than the last two Presidents I would have to ask for a list because last I checked outside of some airstrikes in Libya everything else we have been involved had already started.
*He waged war in Libya.
*Covert drone war in Yemen.
*Covert drone war in Pakistan.
*Obvious covert war in Iran.
*Obvious covert war in Syria.
*Obvious covert war in Egypt.
*Proxy war in Somalia.
*Escalated the war in Afghanistan.
*Prolonged draw down of troops in Iraq.
The Nation has learned from well-placed special operations sources that among the countries where elite special forces teams working for the Joint Special Operations Command have been deployed under the Obama administration are: Iran, Georgia, Ukraine, Bolivia, Paraguay, Ecuador, Peru, Yemen, Pakistan (including in Balochistan) and the Philippines. These teams have also at times deployed in Turkey, Belgium, France and Spain. JSOC has also supported US Drug Enforcement Agency operations in Colombia and Mexico. The frontline for these forces at the moment, sources say, are Yemen and Somalia. "In both those places, there are ongoing unilateral actions," said a special operations source. "JSOC does a lot in Pakistan too." Additionally, these US special forces at times work alongside other nations' special operations forces in conducting missions in their home countries. A US special operations source described one such action where US forces teamed up with Georgian forces hunting Chechen rebels.
Just because ABC, MSNBC and CBS don’t call it “WAR” doesn’t mean it isn’t one.
