Obama’s peace prize continues tradition of dubious choices

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland

12/16/09

[O]ther liberal warheads besides President Obama have won the Nobel Peace Prize, too. Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican Progressive, won the prize but is one of the few American presidents who actually believed that war had positive effects on the human condition. Woodrow Wilson won it but is the man who ruined the entire 20th century by involving America unnecessarily in the First World War (the U.S. had traditionally stayed out of Europe’s wars) and thus inadvertently played a great role in bringing about the conditions for the second, more horrible installment of that conflict and the subsequent Cold War. Finally, Henry Kissinger, the national security adviser and secretary of state to the last liberal president before Obama — Richard Nixon — won the prize even though he and Nixon carpet-bombed the small country of Cambodia, not caring a thing about indiscriminately killing huge numbers of civilians...

Barack Obama’s Doublespeak “peace” speech

Independent Institute
by Laurie L. Calhoun

12/18/09

In accepting the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama recited the tried and true sophism parroted by U.S. presidents since 1945 in defending their wars: The Third Reich had to be defeated. As though Afghanistan bore any more resemblance to Germany than did North Vietnam. As though sending ever more U.S. troops to kill ever more innocent Afghan citizens might have any more tangible effect than to incite the ire of the very people alleged to be quietly conspiring to attack the United States again...

A lesson on nonviolence for Obama

AntiWar.Com
by Eric Stoner

12/19/09

Almost immediately after acknowledging that there is ‘nothing weak — nothing passive — nothing naive — in the creed and lives of Gandhi and King,’ Obama equated nonviolence with doing nothing. To live and act nonviolently, however, never involves standing ‘idle in the face of threats.’ Dorothy Day, Cesar Chavez, Dave Dellinger, Daniel and Philip Berrigan, and countless other genuine peacemakers have put their lives on the line in the struggle for a more just world. Advocates of nonviolence, like Gandhi, simply believe that means and ends are inseparable — that responding in kind to an aggressor will only continue the cycle of violence...

Earn This!

Winslow Myers, Truthout: "President Obama's speech in Oslo was powerful, subtle, honest and provocative - provocative in that it cries out for thoughtful citizen response, especially in the context of the cognitive dissonance which he sought to finesse: a leader at war receiving a peace prize."
