    You are making my argument, because we agree.

    Bush Jr's "coalition" was such a joke that it wasn't much different from "alone". Obama evidently didn't even ask Germany, and is "partnering" with only France, whose pipelines interest in Syria makes the whole operation an obvious oil industry operation.

      Bush's coalition wasn't quite a joke. He did have Great Britain, and there's not good reason to demean the other nations that took part.  All told, 4 countries took part in the initial assault and 3 dozen more took part in the "after party".

      But  ... yes.  Given the world's judgment on Iraq, you'd think Obama would try to meet or exceed that standard.
