I am for the build up. The build up should to add security to our presence. No marching in the cities. Let the Afghans do this. The added security should be for sealing off potential enemy areas and then close the circle and bombard by air to prevent escape. Fight the battles that need to be fought and leave the policing to the Afghan government.

After months of foot dragging by the great pretender to the presidency, Obama informs our enemies (his buddies) of how many troops will be deployed and where and when we'll bring them all home. That should make the terrorist war planning much simpler now. Aren't you happy Code Pink and the rest of you America hating loons?

Mark my words, this telepromter reading tonight will be nothing but Blame Bush! He will talk about failures of the past, inactions of the past, mistakes of the past, and how he will correct and set america on the right course.
It will be vague, with no substance behind it. Probably close to John Kennedy's defining the role of the first advisors to Vietnam.
The Apeaser in Chief will once again use West Point as a backdrop after acussing Bush of using the military in the same way.
Watch the liberal media cover his butt afterwards.
Waht a pathetic little man!
