If by enemies you mean innocent civilians, children, and first responders claiming their “militants” which is especially despicable. http://www.salon.com/2011/08/12/pakistan_drones_children/, http://antiwar.com/blog/2011/07/19/lying-about-civilian-casualties-in-drone-war/, http://www.salon.com/2011/08/12/pakistan_drones_children/ . And that is just the civilians in Pakistan. Here are some more examples in Yemen of targeting children and civilians http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/anwar-al-awlakis-family-speaks-out-against-his-sons-deaths/2011/10/17/gIQA8kFssL_story.html, http://antiwar.com/blog/2012/07/09/killing-civilians-bolstering-dictatorship-and-secret-war-in-yemen/, and http://news.antiwar.com/2012/09/04/yemen-investigates-civilians-killed-by-us-drone/ .

Here is a great article detailing how Obama has increased drone strikes and killed more civilians than even W did during his 8 years. http://dissenter.firedoglake.com/2012/09/11/more-killing-in-obamas-war-on-terror-than-bushs-war/

The Nation did a great article about Obama’s expanding covert wars in Iran, Georgia, Ukraine, Bolivia, Paraguay, Ecuador, Peru, Yemen, Pakistan (including in Balochistan) and the Philippines. http://www.thenation.com/blog/obamas-expanding-covert-wars. And they didn’t even include the actions in Somalia, Libya and Syria (where we’ve been working WITH al-Qaeda), or Uganda. Then there are the “big ones” in Iraq (where he left on W’s timetable, not his promised “immediately) and left 20,000 soldiers backed by PMC’s to continue fighting, and Afghanistan where he has expanding the war dramatically instead of bring the troops home.

And these are just a few links. The question isn’t how is Obama a warmongerer. It really is how isn’t he one. And that doesn’t even cover his assertion to have the right or legal power to murder American civilians without trial or even evidence, by assassination.
