    So, it's official...he went from 'no troops' to '275 troops'.

    Is this how Vietnam started (after the Gulf of Tonkin incident)?
    bad move.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Only reasonable reason to have them.

    I'm surprised Obana has the balls to do that much.

    Those troops were sent there so that we don't have to send troops there.
    Do you follow that logic?

    Obama has been in control for 6 years. He has had ample time to change the world.

    Almost every single President in US history has sent troops to reinforce an Embassy. This also isn't how US involvement in Vietnam started.

    I agree. And I can't decide if this is a knee jerk reaction on Obama's part of if he is just giving the US the finger and sending a few troops in to try and show us a thing or two.......that our diplomats will still be killed and would have in Benghazi even with a few troops.

    Yes. It's actually extremely simple and straightforward.
