'Obama more belligerent than Bush'

An American author says Barack Obama is even more of a warmonger than his predecessor George W. Bush, following the US President's speech on the crisis-stricken Libya.

“Obama actually is worse than George Bush. Bush was fighting two wars directly. Obama is fighting four besides waging proxy wars and doing much, much more damage,” Stephen Lendman said in an interview with Press TV's US Desk on Wednesday.

"We more or less knew what we might be getting when Bush became president. Obama painted himself as an entirely different kind of a leader so the more progressive elements in America backed him strongly,” he said.

Commenting on the idea that Obama “wanted to end the wars,” Lendman said “It is hard to believe but he outdid George W. Bush.”

"We finally got rid of George W. Bush and what did we get? We got something worse.”

Obama had earlier said in his speech over Libya that “We are naturally reluctant to use force to solve the world's many challenges. But when our interests and values are at stake, we have a responsibility to act.”

The Libyan crisis broke out in mid-February following a popular uprising that turned into a revolution, having reportedly left more than 6,000 people dead so far.

According to a recent poll in the United States, the Obama administration's intervention in Libya's crisis has failed to win the approval of a majority of the American people and has earned the lowest public approval rating of any US military operation polled by the Gallup organization over the past four decades.

The least popular US military intervention polled by Gallup, before the Libyan crisis, was President Clinton's 1999 intervention in the Balkan conflict over Kosovo
