Obama Needs to Earn his Nobel Peace Prize
Posted by Staff
Obama ran on the platform that he wanted to take troops out of Iraq and limit US involvement in the Middle East. Clearly, that is not what is happening. Maybe it's not even what needs to happen. Obama may have won the Nobel Peace Prize, but, having allowed the genocide of Christians in Iraq, he's clearly conveyed that peace is the last thing on his mind. Last night, Obama announced that he would begin air strikes in defense of Iraqi Christians - as if that will be enough. We played a large role in putting the Iraqi Christians in the position they are in today; therefore, we are responsible for helping to ensure their safety through SUBSTANTIAL methods. We can't let Obama get away with claiming that airstrikes will be enough to protect innocent Christians in Iraq. Humanitarian efforts are now necessary, and we must guarantee their success through sufficient methods.
