Obama is right to expand the United States Armed Forces

Obama is Right! 
During the speech Obama called for an expansion of the United States Armed Forces "by adding 65,000 soldiers to the Army and 27,000 Marines", an idea previously introduced by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
Reasons to agree:
  1. We should have enough perminant troops that if we ever wanted to do another Iran, we could win it easily.

Interest of those who agree (that Obama is right):

  1. Promoting the Democratic Party by defending a democrat.
  2. Liberal guilt (defending a minority because he is a minority)
  3. Security
  4. Money / Jobs. Securing jobs for family or friends who are employed by US Military or defense spending.

Interest of those who disagree (that Obama is right):

  1. Promoting the Republican Party by attacking a democrat.
  2. Racism (critisizing a minority because he is a minority)
  3. Not using money on things that kill people.
  4. Anti-Americansim. Those who are overseas might not want America to be able to defend itself.
