The "Obama doctrine" is really the "Bush doctrine"

Obama justifies the attack on Libya by the U.S. and friends on the grounds of hypothetical future actions. This is precisely the "Bush doctrine", spelled out in the National Security Strategy document, and enunciated most clearly by Bush in a June 1, 2002 speech (emphasis added):
We must take the battle to the enemy, disrupt his plans, and confront the worst threats before they emerge.
By the way, if a supposed impending massacre of civilians in Bengazi was a threat to our "interests and values" (note, not even our "national security," just our "interests and values"), how much more so is the just as hypothetical development of nuclear weapons by Iran? If the "Obama Bush Doctrine" can justify a massive attack on Libya, surely it can justify an equally massive attack on Iran.

Just sayin'.
