In a move of strategic brilliance, a group of academics in Oslo Norway have effectively accomplished that which eluded the grasp of our enemies for over eight years on battlefields from Iraq and Afghanistan to the Philippines to North Africa to Ground Zero, New York City.
By handing the Nobel Peace Prize to the President of the United States they have effectively neutered and shackled our national leadership’s will to wage war. The world’s highest credentialed egomaniac – a man who’s never had an original thought in his entire life – has had the ultimate peace medallion hung around his neck - what are the odds Barack Hussein Obama will now be willing to commit further US forces to combat in our struggle against Islamofascism?
The day after the action that won my buddy R.D. the Silver Star in Afghanistan, his battalion commander and the Joint Special Operations Task Force commander came out to his firebase and told him to “stop taking so many risks, it’s not worth it.” What kind of command emphasis is that? No wonder morale is plummeting - our Commander-in-Chief cannot even abide calling it “the Global War On Terror”.
The last US President to receive the Nobel Peace Prize was none other that Jimmy Carter, the man personally responsible for paving the way to power for the Ayatollah Khomeini, and on whose watch the Soviets saw fit to roll into Afghanistan. Thank you, Mr. Carter, you gave the world the Islamic Fundamentalist revolution; here’s your Peace Prize.
Jimmy Carter has made a post-Presidential career of expressing anti-American rhetoric in support of America’s enemies. President Obama didn’t even wait until his term was over to badmouth his own country overseas, and true to form the Euros awarded him the Nobel Peace Prize.
Where is George W. Bush’s Nobel Peace Prize? He liberated MILLIONS.
Is the Nobel ever awarded posthumously? If so, when does Ronald Reagan get HIS Nobel Peace Prize?
The Reagan Doctrine of “Peace through Superior Firepower” resulted in the tearing down of the Berlin Wall without a shot being fired, and the subsequent collapse of global Communism.
It is a truism of history that peace is achieved by force of arms.
There is a reason they called the Colt model 1873 revolver - one of the most legendary small arms in military history – “the Peacemaker”.

If I was the President of the United States, I’d take that Nobel Peace Prize and say, “Thank you very much. This is a very nice Prize, what an honor. Now for an encore I’m starting World War Three!” I’d go down in history as the guy who put the kibosh on al Qaeda, the Taliban AND Ahmadinejahd and the mad mullahs in Iran.
"Deal with me now . . . "
. . . or deal with me LATER."
Fat chance any of that is going to happen anytime soon. I guess all that Obama talk about how he would take fight to Pakistan was just that – talk.
"We don't really want to WIN this war if it means killing people and breaking things . . ."
'OBAMA WILL TAKE FIGHT TO TERRORIST ENEMIES IN AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN'
By Dan Balz, Washington Post Staff Writer - August 2, 2007
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama issued a pointed warning yesterday to Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, saying that as president he would be prepared to order U.S. troops into that country unilaterally if it failed to act on its own against Islamic extremists.
In his most comprehensive statement on terrorism, the senator from Illinois said that the Iraq war has left the United States less safe than it was before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and that if elected he would seek to withdraw U.S. troops and shift the country's military focus to threats in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
"When I am president, we will wage the war that has to be won," he told an audience at the Woodrow Wilson Center in the District. He added, "The first step must be to get off the wrong battlefield in Iraq and take the fight to the terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan."
