Obama made the statements at the US military academy in West Point, New York. During his speech, Obama defended his foreign policy decisions, denying that his administration is diminishing the US role in the international arena. He said the US withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan doesn’t mean US strength is declining. He said US military forces will always be the backbone of US leadership around the globe. Obama insisted that though the US has an interest in ensuring peace and freedom beyond its borders, it shouldn’t use military intervention in all cases. He promised to continue US efforts in Syria and Ukraine.
