Missed the mark

Reader comment on item: Sheikh Obama and His Two Wars

Submitted by Jerry Krasnow (United States), Dec 10, 2009 at 14:45

Just as President Bush set forth principles upon which to base his decision to go to war, President Obama's acceptance speech of the Nobel Peace prize set forth his criteria regarding war and peace. These statesman quality words rise far beyond the petty criticisms leveled by the right or the left. One can take pride in Obama's goals that commit to strive for peace while using strength to diminsh those bend on terror.

Pipe's ridicule of the President missed the mark.
