Obama Sends More Troops

After President Obama’s promise to end the war, he decides to send more troops into Afghanistan. The announcement was given while Obama was visiting the Army Academy. He said that he will send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan to help fight the war on terrorism.

Obama explained that it was a difficult desicion. “I don’t make this desicion lightly,” he said. “I make this desicion because I am convinced that our security is at stake in Afghanistan and Pakistan.” He then declared that within 18 months that troops will begin to be pulled out. Obama’s main goal is to keep the troops there long enough to stabilize the government.
