Vietnam II

Usually, I pass on presidential speeches, but I hoped he would announce our withdrawal from Afghanistan, and while he did not make me happy with his Pakistan remarks.
One of the reasons I wanted a withdrawal is that we have have paid tribute to Pakistan for more than a decade so that we could provide vehicles, and supplies over the Afghanistan/Pakistan border while at the same time Pakistan has hidden Al Queda fighters. Pakistan has played us like a drum, so if we are to remain we need to weigh heavily on the side of India in the India/Pakistan dispute. 

Pakistan my yet overplay their hand and try to choke off the US supplies, but we have a small footprint and can sustain our forces now without Pakistan. We should.
