Reader: Barack Obama is a war president, whether supporters want to admit it or not

Just ask the thousands of innocent civilians (many of whom were women and children) in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya who have been murdered by drone bombs.

Just ask the people of Iran who are the victims of draconian sanctions due to the actions of their government.
