The Nobel Peace Prize For Drone Strikes Goes To?
Well of course the winner is President Obama. How ironic? But well deserved in my opinion. It just shows how negligent the Nobel committee has become in the past generation. They bestowed an award based on some unknown promise which was perceived in their pea brains. They were hoping or at minimum, bought what our media was peddling us in 2008 and has proven to be nothing more than hyperbole. Historically speaking, such an honor is awarded based on remarkable achievement and rightly so.
Well last I checked on the current events in the Middle East, the Nobel brainiacs picked the wrong guy. At least their intentions were honorable. And isn't that after all, what matters? Not to me as I prefer actions to words. It is not so widely reported that President Obama has out droned President Bush by a factor of four.
Simply incredible and I thank him for it. I do however regret the massive amount of collateral damage imposed by Mr. President. The few reports available suggest hundreds of innocents being killed in these strikes, children included.
Most unfortunate that. But perhaps it is better than pouring water down the gullets of three world known terrorists? Well if you listen to the Presidents supporters and 95% of the media, a little water is worse than innocent lives incinerated. The world is indeed upside down. At least if your perspective is from the left. At least that is the impression I get and have no choice but to conclude is the feelings of the left. Deafly silent on the issue wouldn't you say? Tells me lots. It is indeed inconsistent, and also true.

The President received the award while campaigning as the anti-Bush. He promised to sit with the leaders of the Middle East and terrorist communities and bring peace. He promised to close Guantanamo Bay prison on day one of his administration. In the end, the results are the same as Michael Moore promising to drop five pounds. Empty words.
