President Obama on Libya

The President’s weekly address focuses on the military mission in Libya. Take a look:

I like the line about not putting boots on the ground. Our military, while professional and quite capable of handling what it needs to, needs to be given a chance to rearm, rebuild, and rest. The US military has gone full-out since 2001 and I have to say I am extremely proud of the job they have done in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Libya. I have nothing but respect for our troops who’ve endured two horrific wars and the pain of being separated from their loved ones for long periods of time.

I hope the situation in Libya ends soon and everyone involved, NATO, allies, Americans, and Libyans can go home safe and whole.

(Past videos of the Presidents Weekly Address can be found at the official page for the White House.)

    I want to thank you for the support! All to often people forget that our military is deployed to places that people are dead set on killing them no matter what. Even if you don’t support the policy you HAVE to support the men and women of our Armed Forces. Welcome them home ever chance you get.

      I just want to point out that Killdain’s comment (above) is the 800th comment I’ve received here at The House of Goonery. Thanks for commenting, Killdain, and I hope to see you around for a long time yet.

      Kindest Regards,
