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.
