The LAT’s blog posts the text of President Obama’s speech to US troops at Osan Air Base.
Good speech, IMHO, although I thought the preceding comment by blogger Andrew Malcom was cute:
[Obama] also promised to increase military pay, which received more applause. Obama reassured South Koreans that his country’s commitment to their security would never waver. At one point he cited as evidence of that enduring commitment a soldier there, Skip Sharp, whose father fought in the Korean War during the Truman administration.
So, let’s see, that puts us about 57 or 58 years into the 100 years that, during the 2008 presidential campaign, a campaigning Sen. John McCain was attacked so much for suggesting the U.S. troop commitment would last. Now, a President Obama says there is no end in sight.
