Obama considers sending more troops to Afghanistan

Tomorrow night President Obama will address the nation about possibly sending more troops to Afghanistan to avoid defeat in the war there.

It is said that he is supported by the heads of military action in whatever decision he makes.

I will certainly be watching tomorrow night to see what he has decided. Regardless of what my opinion is, I'm glad he has finally made a decision. I just wish he wouldn't lay it all out on national television. It kind of ruins the whole element of suprise and kills our plan of attack when the enemy knows our every move. I pray he doesn't give away all the details.
