Now, I am not sure if some of you know, but President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize before he was really even President of the United States of America. It is interesting how someone can win the Nobel peace prize without doing one thing that actually deserves it besides words. But all this is fine and good, but the most interesting thing is what was said when giving that speech. In that speech he happened to bring up something interesting, which shows some hypocrisy on his part.
Barack Obama says, “I have spoken to the questions that must weigh on our minds and our hearts as we choose to wage war. But let me turn now to our effort to avoid such tragic choices, and speak of three ways that we can build a just and lasting peace.
First, in dealing with those nations that break rules and laws, I believe that we must develop alternatives to violence that are tough enough to change behavior – for if we want a lasting peace, then the words of the international community must mean something. Those regimes that break the rules must be held accountable. Sanctions must exact a real price. Intransigence must be met with increased pressure – and such pressure exists only when the world stands together as one.”
Now you might not be aware of this, but the US signed a treaty that was called the Geneva Convention. This prevents those nations who signed it from torturing others, besides basic human rights. But here is the kicker, President Obama
, and Eric Holder
, have said that water-boarding was torture. And yet the American government took part in it, and there are international laws against it. And yet President Obama did not send these people who broke the law to face an international trial like was done with the Nuremberg trials against the Nazi’s. Yet President Obama protected
and forgave all those who performed the torture. They were protected from international law.
A foreign nation
tried to have those who committed torture to face trial. But President Obama prevented these people from facing trial. So President Obama prevented the “regimes that break the rules” from being held accountable, and protecting them. What does that mean when a person says this at the Nobel Peace Prize is not being held to by his own administration. What makes it even worse is that President Obama is killing people in other nations without the permission of that nation. This is again a violation of international law, and Federal law. So where are the sanctions that was talked about in this peace prize speech? Nowhere. Where is the peace? Nowhere.
Can you honestly trust this person when he does not follow through in what he said during campaigns, let alone to the international community, and worse of all when said to defend the US Constitution and execute federal law?
