Obama to Oslo: War is Peace

I cannot argue with those who find these men and women - some known, some obscure to all but those they help - to be far more deserving of this honor than I.—Barry Hussein Soetoro, Oslo Norway 12/10/09 (see transcript)
There they sat royalty, commoner, academic, rich and the privileged being lectured to by someone that many in his own country consider to be a Usurper to the presidency.

The sweet irony of it all is Barry Hussein Soetoro illegitimately holds the office of president and as a usurper he accepted a prize that by his own admission was generous given and quite undeserved.

Yet the ultimate contradiction—the Orwellian redefinition of reality was Soetoro standing before the Oslo gathering. And standing there he told them that the prize which they awarded him, the Nobel Peace Prize, could in fact be awarded to a usurper who is conducting two wars because war can be conducted justly (as he is doing) and if waged correctly war is peace. That right Soetoro told Oslo that WAR IS PEACE.
But perhaps the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of a nation in the midst of two wars. One of these wars is winding down. The other is a conflict that America did not seek; one in which we are joined by forty three other countries - including Norway - in an effort to defend ourselves and all nations from further attacks…

…Over time, as codes of law sought to control violence within groups, so did philosophers, clerics, and statesmen seek to regulate the destructive power of war. The concept of a "just war" emerged, suggesting that war is justified only when it meets certain preconditions: if it is waged as a last resort or in self-defense; if the forced used is proportional, and if, whenever possible, civilians are spared from violence.
—Barry Hussein Soetoro (see 9:38min video 4mins in)

Soetoro said if war is waged as a last resort or in self-defense or if force is used proportionally and if civilians are spared from violence if possible then War is Peace. I'll bet Oslo was so glad to learn that they actually awarded the Nobel Just War Prize instead of the one that they intended to award.

There is one other Orwellian concept that the American people have had to accept under the Soetoro presidency and that is article II of the Constitution; The Constitution does not a President make or you don’t have to be constitutionally eligible to be a Nobel Just War Prize awarded president.
