How does a Nobel Peace Prize winner justify launching missile strikes in Syria? Or for that matter, a five-year drone war in the Middle East? Kirsten Powers says: he simply cant.
Military action is, of course, sometimes necessary to maintain peace. Kosovo and World War II are good examples. But the president has not demonstrated that missile attacks in Syria would do anything to achieve peace. Worse, by all accounts, Obamas red line threat was an off-the-cuff remark, not a well thought-out strategy. The U.S. should not attack another country because the president was careless with his words and now wants to protect his personal credibility.

But, but, but, but (to paraphrase Chris Wallace), Obama INTENDS to be peaceful. It’s only others that are forcing him to attack Syria alone.

Obama, leave off the Dear, the American people want the truth about the four Americans you allowed to be murdered in Benghazi?
This guy could declare war on the whole world and they would still give him the Nobel Peace Prize. The award became totally meaningless when it was given to him less than 3 months after he became POTUS.

Can’t blame him for accepting the Noble Prize, rather it is the prize givers who should be admonished for giving a prestious (formerly) award to such an obvious shammer.
I have no doubt that the “august” body that presented it to Obama did it to tweak America’s “bigoted” nose.
I will now have to go back into history and see if they did similar things for the Germans before World War II.

"The award became totally meaningless when it was given to him less than 3 months after he became POTUS." I would say it was before that...

Sorry, I agree with you. I forgot about that snake.

How does a Nobel Peace Prize winner justify launching missile strikes in Syria?
How is a community organizer qualified to be the president?
How does a pothead get into Columbia?
How does a mediocre student make Harvard Law Review ?

Military action is, of course, sometimes necessary to maintain peace.
Kosovo and World War II are good examples.
From 2001 to the end of the Bush presidency in 2009, 625 American troops died because of the war. Under 0bamas watch, more than twice that many, some 1,500 soldiers, have died. Tens of thousands of civilians have been killed as well.
It's encouraging that lib, Kirsten Powers, even brings this up this gnawing, disturbing statistic. Thanks to suicidal Rules of Engagement.
But nothing undermines the notion of 0bama as a leader for peace more than his five-year Middle East drone war.
Ya think, Kirsten? Dear Kirsten. Dearest Kirsten. MEMO: Your President is a fraud. An enemy of your country. An enemy of truth.
