Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind.
"It's hard to keep track of the Nobel Peace Laureate's manifold wars, kinetic actions, and drone assassinations."
The irony was manifest in Obama's 2009 Nobel prize acceptance speech. In it, he justified Bush's decisions, of course without explicitly drawing the connection.To start with, "peace is not merely the absence of visible conflict." He goes deeper.My take on Obama's Nobel prize acceptance speech:http://learning-curve.blogspot.com/2009/12/closer-reading-of-nobel-speech-obama.htmlIt's not Obama's fault that he was awarded the Nobel peace prize based on a misconception. It was a testament to the unrealistic worldview of the awarders and their willful ignorance about the responsibilities held by the leader of the leader of the free world.The Nobel peace prize is best awarded to individuals doing advocacy work outside the central arena of international affairs.
