Just off the cuff, it sounds like it sucks, but what ya gonna do? I'm ALL ABOUT blaming Obama for shit, but this seems like a damned if you do, damned and vulnerable if you don't.

If countries actually aided
our efforts, more than half of these actions wouldn't be necessary.
So IMO, their governments are equally
to blame, if not more, for any civilian losses.
