    So many on this board seem to believe that America is "stronger" when we bully and bluster our way around the globe demanding our way at the point of a sword. But that "strength" is not strength at all. Because no matter how superior our military might - we could not stand alone against the entire world.

    Our strength lies in our military might COUPLED with our friendships around the world. You can't live at peace with ONLY friendships and you can't live at peace with JUST military might. If you put all of your eggs in just one of these baskets, you will fail.

    The fact that I value friendships as well as a potent military means I value a strong and secure America. Anyone who can't support BOTH - does not.

    THAT is why people who do love America and who DO favor a strong and secure America should realize that what this award really means is that we are making good progress on at least 50% of the goal. No more - no less.

    We hope we can be every bit as successful with the other 50% as well.

    I know that it is to much to ask of the hyper-partisan zealots who appear to live and breathe for the sole purpose of tearing down Obama at any cost (even at the cost of our national security) to acknowledge this obvious truth. That's OK, keep whining about what a disgrace this award is and how it wasn't earned and hope and pray that you can convince yourself or others of the validity of your arguments. But do it secure in the knowledge that America is safer and more secure - in part - because of the international goodwill this award represents.

    When you say "we" are you reffering to ALL the voices in your head or just a couple of them?

    But it doesn't matter how many of you are impressed. Maybe a nuclear first-strike would impress you more - who knows????? But the fact of the matter - no matter how impressive the voices in your head find it - is that this award represents a step toward a safer and more secure America.

    If THAT doesn't impress your voices - then all I can say is that I value different things than your voices do.

    Making another topic on this still isn't listing all those wonderful accomplishments in the 12 DAYS he was in office to warrant even being nominated for this award. Great job at deflecting the question though.

    I think when so many in the United States and so many around the international community "see things" that you don't see - you have to wonder - whose vision is blurred?

    what did they spike your kool aid with this morning? I see things getting worse by the second. 35,000 people in Detroit lined up for handouts that only 3,500 will receive and violence breaks out. 30% unemployment in Detroit. the bastion of liberalism and the union empire.. and you want to pat yourself on the back? Go ahead.

    It means nothing since it was awarded for nothing.

    Oh, I see - the Nobel Peace Prize should be linked to unemployment rates in Detroit, Mi, USA?????

    Man, you are really scratching and clawing aren't you? LOL.

    I'm sorry that you don't value a safer and more secure America - sort of calls all your other opinions into serious question. But all I can say is that it just reminds me how very grateful I am that your ilk aren't calling the shots.
