FIGHT CLUB: THE U.S. WARS CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN NUMBER EXPONENTIALLY

The average person out there doesn’t know much about what wars the U.S. is fighting at any given time.

Most will know that the military is in Afghanistan or Iraq (still), but typically not much beyond that.

For instance, under Bush (2001 – 2008) the U.S. fought wars in:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Iraq
  3. Pakistan
  4. Somalia

Under Obama (2009 – present), the U.S. is involved in wars in  over four times as many countries:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Cameroon
  3. Chad
  4. The Iraq War
  5. Iraq (War on ISIL)
  6. Jordan
  7. Korea
  8. Libya
  9. Libya (War on ISIL)
  10. Mali
  11. Nigeria (War on ISIL)
  12. Pakistan
  13. Somalia
  14. Strait of Hormuz
  15. Syria (War on ISIL)
  16. Turkey
  17. Uganda
  18. Yeman

Plus, Obama is using NATO in Europe to try and provoke a conflict with Russia.  And the U.S. is also trying to start something with China too.

If you want to see an estimate of how much Bush and Obama’s wars have cost, look here.

This is a list of wars the U.S. has fought since it became an independent country (listed by president):
