Think Progress: The cost of war

Rightardia has heard some younger people say that Obama is exactly like GW Bush and cite the Libya insurgency as an example.

The Libya conflict was planned by NATO, not the US. The US had a supporting role and most of the air missions were conducted by France. This war was a multi-national effort while GW Bush's Iraq war enjoyed little multi-national support and that is the reason it was so expensive.

Libya took less than a year to prosecute, while Iraq took more than 8 years.

Rightardia thinks comparison between the two conflicts is apples and oranges.

What do you think?
