    Content, or delivery?

    I think he's doing what he has to do. he said he has allies with us, so if that's true, it's a plus. He's only sending 475 troops to Iraq, if I heard him right.

    But it is noteworthy that he's doing a complete about face. Again, he's doing what he feels he has to do. I'll support whatever gets done.

    I was impressed that he figures we'll be as successful in Iraq as we have been in Somalia and Yemen.

    In short, it sounds like he's doing pretty much exactly what Bush had planned 6 years ago even though he ****canned that plan back then when it might have prevented a lot of this crap.

    How many more dead and maimed USA soldiers would we have if McCain had been President and left a residual force in perpetuity?
    How bad would the two civil wars be right now?
    How many more thousands of terrorists would have already flocked in to "bring it on" ?

    Very in-depth analysis of Obama and his speech. Well done.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    McCain is a pimp but I think he'd done a better job in keeping casualties down and I doubt we'd be reading about beheaded journalists.

    All Americans need to see McCain's comments on CNN right now.

    McCain has refused to allow Carney to speak when questioned and directly accused Obama of falsehoods--real nice on the world stage huh?

    He is a bitter man who still can't deal with the fact he didn't get to direct the war machine President Eisenhower warned us of.

    Carney is a far better man than I right now for the way McCain completely dishonored his position as a Senator and Statesman in the way he behaved .

    I am unimpressed with his speech...but I am, perhaps naively, hopeful that he will succeed in eliminating ISIS.

    I don't think we'll see any immediate results. Heck, I don't really think we'll see results until Obama is out of Office and we get a Republican President.

    So you were in favor of leaving a residual force which would have continued losing
    lives as well as continuing the overload of the VA with thousands of more lives?

    Not to mention that Americans were never going to allow Palin to be a heartbeat away from the President.
    A President who finally got another war, one he doesn'ty want to vote on either .
