This is the Obama wishy washy speech at West Point.
We are putting the troops in BUT we are also puling them out?

That sends the wrong message to the Taliban.
We should have heard THIS speech at West Point in front of those fine cadets.

That is the greatest speech I have ever heard. Pretty much sums it up. Time for everybody to wake up and realize we must win this fight against terrorism or pay the price later.

Thanks for the "Patton" vid.

I didn't watch the Obama speach, but did listen to enough of Patton's video to hear him admonish Iraqis to take control of their own situation and future.

I really don't see that there's so much difference between Obama's encouragement of Afganistan's self defense forces, and Patton's admonishment of Iraqis.

I am all for the defense of the USA against terrorism and nuclear holocaust. But I don't believe we have the resources to occupy every nation that might threaten our liberty this way. I'm tired of listening to Cheney/Rumsfield complain that Afganistan will immediately fall into Taliban hands if America leaves. Hell, if I was Governing a Province in Afganistan, I'd be making damn sure I was ready to defend myself during the next 18 months.

You, sir, are quite correct.

However, it's not Obama whose worldview doesn't allow the total war, and crushing brutality, and grinding poverty, and overwhelming ignorance that mark the only successful governments that Islamic Societies have ever known.

It is the entire western civilization, whose Judeo/Christian values demand that we, "Do unto others what we would have them to do unto us." This is nonsensical to the Muslim, who only sees it as pitiful weakness.

Until we stop building schools, sewage systems, and handing out soccer balls, and begin painting Kabul and Bagdad Red using the blood of their residents (or, better yet, install a blood-thirsty, MUSLIM puppet to do this dirty work), we can expect to be continuously harrassed with fanatical Islamists.

very well put...... allow the soldiers to take off the gloves and get it done... with the PC crapolla in place such as it is...... we are going to lose and that is indeed what the obama and the play room people want....

my attitude is if the people there have a weapon and they point it at me... they die right there on the spot.... no if or butts about it....

damn it is hell being retired military and seeing all this stuff going on...

I only seen some of the edited version of the speech, and he was generally wishy-washy as you pointed out...

but what surpised me was his final ~2-3 minutes when he started spouting the neocon/Bush-Cheney rhetoric which made more sense...

and didn't you notice that the audience of Cadets & guests actually gave a standing applause during that part of the speech --->

I wondered to myself... the Military is taught to remain unaffected by politics, but the Cadets enmasse gave a standing applaus when Pres. Obama Finally started speaking with sense & reason, to the Cadets, during the final minutes.

The Patton speech is much better.
I wonder who actually wrote the Obama wishy washy speech???
The West Point cadets deserved better.
