Obama's speech in Berlin

I didn't like this speech as much as some of his previous ones. Too much feel-goodism at the beginning. And I'm not sure his idea of adding more troops to Afghanistan is a good idea. I liked what he said about securing nuclear material and reducing nuclear arsenals, though. This is one of many security concerns that the Bush administration hasn't emphasized enough.

Content of the speech aside, the images of an American being cheered by immense crowds of foreign people are very heartening.
