Obama is in Ottawa today developing plans with Stephen Harper ranging from Clean Technology to Afghanistan. From what I’ve heard so far, we’re pulling our troops out in 2011, meanwhile it was announced that the U.S. is sending more troops to combat the insurgency. I guess now that they’re getting ready to pull out of Iraq, they’re going to send troops to the Afghan front.
As I said before, it’s nice to see Obama pick Canada for his first international visit. Relations between our two countries have been pretty rocky this decade and it’s nice that Obama is taking steps towards fixing that. It’s too bad that he’s only here for 6 hours. Hopefully next time he comes to Toronto. Go Obama! Save us from ourselves!
