President, in his weekly address yesterday, admired the U.S. Army for its services in Iraq and Afghanistan and mentioned his plans for bringing back U.S. troops from Afghanistan after their retrieval from Iraq. He emphasized the need to recognize their efforts rendered in the war countries. He felt satisfied with their performance and appreciated them for successfully completing the tough job.
"We've broken the Taliban's momentum in Afghanistan and begun the transition to an Afghan lead. Next month, the last of the troops I ordered as part of the surge against the Taliban will come home. And by 2014, the transition to Afghan lead will be complete," President Obama said about bringing back troops from Afghanistan, as reported by Yahoo News.
The president assured the soldiers that they would be provided every kind of support they need. "As long as we have a single American in harm's way, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep them safe and help them succeed. That means giving them a clear mission and the equipment they need on the front lines. But it also means taking care of our veterans and their families, because no one who fights for this country should have to fight for a job or a roof over their head when they come home," he said.
President Obama focused on the military to appreciate the determined efforts from U.S. soldiers in the distant battle grounds. He appeared to have understood that people of America are now exhausted with the continuous war and economic crisis and want relief from all these problems. He is campaigning for re-election and therefore addressing all the hot issues in the country.
"It's time to build a nation that lives up to the ideals that so many Americans have fought for -- a nation where they can realize the dream they sacrificed to protect," he said.
