Although I guess I could care less, it looks like Carter was in office at the time (1980).

Anyway, nice speech. The words themselves carry a lot of weight with me, regardless of who says them.

I am curious (especially with your earlier "read the speech" comment) did you read his speech? I thought he made a point of addressing that specific sentiment.

Quote:
But in many countries, there is a disconnect between the efforts of those who serve and the ambivalence of the broader public. I understand why war is not popular. But I also know this: The belief that peace is desirable is rarely enough to achieve it. Peace requires responsibility. Peace entails sacrifice. That is why NATO continues to be indispensable. That is why we must strengthen U.N. and regional peacekeeping, and not leave the task to a few countries. That is why we honor those who return home from peacekeeping and training abroad to Oslo and Rome; to Ottawa and Sydney; to Dhaka and Kigali we honor them not as makers of war, but as wagers of peace.
edit: I am not agreeing/disagreeing with this full quote, just thought that a hardcore supporter (that's you dmek) would openly contradict Lord Obama.

im not sure who you support, but everyone has their own beliefs as far as the way things are run. just because i voted for Obama doesn't mean that i agree with everything he says/ does. one of my biggest gripes with Bush was that he was so secretive in the way he handled our matters. at least( so far) Obama has been very transparent

I can't recall specifics, but Obama has been anything but "transparent". Pretty sure alot of criticism was leveled at how the stimulus was handled. And not sure what Bush's secretiveness (is that even a word) has to do with Obama's specific disparagement of your position about deploying troops.

No, not really. I thought he explained his position quite well and was realistic about what's going on in the world.

Re: President Obama's Nobel Prize Speech

Yeah ok his speech was nice, but thats his strongest attribute, speaking, thats what helped him get elected. But I still dont understand how/why he deserved the nobel peace prize.
