    Here is that remark in context, starting at 16:32 in the video:

    Americans are asking, "How will we fight and win this war?''

    We will direct every resource at our command--every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war--to the destruction and to the defeat of the global terror network.

    Now, this war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.

    Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes visible on TV and covert operations secret even in success.

    We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place until there is no refuge or no rest.

    And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.
    I really wish people would stop acting like lemming, providing out of context snippets, provided to them from pundits.

    Agree with Bush or you are not only anti-American, you are a terrorist. So the fall back is just a repeat of their history.
    So, are you being intellectually dishonest, or ignorant?

    See my last post.

For all those asking answers for how Benghazi can happen, how one of our ambassadors can be killed, you should be cheering this action.

    I will say this is the best decision the President and his team made in this crisis.
    I agree. Better safe than sorry.

    As much as I hate president Obama, I'm not going to complain about every decision made because I hate him.

    I'm sorry, but this and other clips of him, I don't trust. I simply don't believe anything he says.

    Why was he forced to leave SACEUR early? Does he have a bone to pick?

    It was Clinton that removed him from his post in 1999.

    Obama in the Toilet at Conservative Conference

    The Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference, which draws some of the biggest conservative icons and presidential hopefuls looking to make inroads with the grassroots, was heavy on criticism of Obama’s domestic and foreign policy agenda. And small figurines of Obama’s head, first spotted by the Huffington Post‘s Igor Bobic, were placed inside the urinals in the mens’ restroom outside the conference hall where the likes of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were addressing a crowd of several hundred.

    National Rifle Association Bans Bleeding “Obama” Target, Others Remain

    The company, Zombie Industries, sells a range of three-dimensional “life sized” targets that “bleed when you shoot them.” The Obama likeness has been on display for two days, but was notably absent on Sunday.

    “Someone from the NRA came by and asked us to remove it” a Zombie Industries booth worker told BuzzFeed in hushed tones. “They thought it looked too much like President Obama.”

    When asked if the Obama likeness was intentional the worker said, “Let’s just say I gave my Republican father one for Christmas.”

    There's a lot worse out there than calling Bush, Bin Laden's bitch on a small website forum.

    There may be different degrees of ignorance but it's still ignorance.
