Barack Obama sure is speechy these days, huh?
Seems like just last week that he was giving a speech about how he's decided to escalate the war in Afghanistan by sending an additional 30,000 troops into that smoldering shell of a country. And now, he's delivering an acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize…
President Obama, accepting the Nobel Peace Prize here on Thursday, acknowledged the age-old tensions between war and peace but argued that his recent decision to escalate the conflict in Afghanistan was justified to protect the world from terrorism and extremism.
"We must begin by acknowledging the hard truth," Mr. Obama said. "We will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes. There will be times when nations — acting individually or in concert — will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified."
Yes, and then there are countries like the ones like the U.S. and the U.K. which are trying to fight back against the Middle Eastern countries' moral war against the West, which I'm assuming he is referencing in the above paragraph.
This is clearly a case of the good guys vs. the bad guys.
