When doublespeak rules the day, anything is possible. Look no further than the Nobel committee for proof of concept. This isn’t the first bogus award they have awarded and I’m sure it won’t be the last. There must be something about handing out blood money that perverts your sense of decency. I just don’t know how any rational committee can look at the faces of the dead children above and say that Barrack Obama, the man who is ultimately responsible for the scene you see in that photograph, the man with whom “the buck stops” as Harry Truman put it, is the greatest harbinger of peace in the world and give him $1.4 million. Why not find the next of kin from that picture and give them the peace prize and $1.4 million? That would be a statement.
I’m not being obtuse. I understand and appreciate the fact that this is a rebuke of the insufferable dullard and warmonger George W. Bush by the international community. Symbolism, blah, blah. Look at those faces! We murdered those children just two months ago, likely via remote control, with the tacit acceptance of our society and our leader, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Barrack Obama. There is nothing peaceful about that. Keep looking at those faces. They are the faces of Obama’s peace. War is not peace. Remember that.
[Ed. 01:39 AM CDT 10/10/09] For the better part of the day, this piece misidentified an “insufferable dullard and warmonger” as George H.W. Bush, when in fact I meant George W. Bush. His father, George H.W. Bush, was not an insufferable dullard, but simply a warmonger.
