George Bush started his war in Afghanistan in October of 2001, and in the next seven years and three months, 630 Americans were killed and 2,631 were wounded.
Barack Obama came to office, took over Bush's war, and proceeded to expand it. In the two years that Obama has been waging his war in Afghanistan, 816 American troops have been killed and 7,582 were wounded.
Now I am not saying that Barack Obama is a bigger War Monger, or that he has more blood on his hands than George Bush does, I am just putting out these facts for you to think about.
