President Obama has made his decision on the war in Afghanistan:
US President Barack Obama has ordered 30,000 more US troops to Afghanistan but warned America would begin to withdraw its military by 2011.
The new deployment over six months will bring America's troop strength in the country to more than 100,000, in the fight against Taliban militants.
Mr Obama also urged America's allies in Nato to send more troops.
Defending the war, he insisted there were no parallels with Vietnam and that world security was at stake.
What do you think of the speech at West Point and his plans?
