Obama Expands Military Involvement in Africa
The Nobel Peace Prize has been rendered meaningless with its presumptive award to US President Barak Obama, who has clearly demonstrated a dedication to the imperialist policies of his predecessor, George II.
The current regime continues to expand arms sales to African nations, ostensibly to stop Al Qa'ida expansion. However, one cannot expect the locals to use their new weapons only on the "enemies of my friends." More guns and ammunition means more indiscriminate killing for purposes having nothing to do with US pretensions of empire.
The only way to stop war is to stop the obscene corporate profits in international arms sales to every local thug who's embezzled a few million dollars from the neighbors. The United States government places private profit above any and all moral principles and standards of decency, and backs up its support of business interests with clandestine intervention and outright military incursion. The almighty dollar walks loudly across the earth, carrying the big stick of violence.
Rather than awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to anyone, withhold it indefinitely, until peace, at long last, prevails.
