Barack Obama, Warmonger

The most amazing thing about Tuesday evening's speech by President Obama at West Point was that if you closed your eyes, and imagined the occasional butchering of the English language, if could have been George W. Bush on the stage. The Afghani conflict was stated to be crucial to the security of the United States, with no real explanation of why this is the case. And, although the previous strategy didn't work, the best thing to do is more of what we've been doing. I've definitely heard all this before.
