Over at The Daily Dish, Andrew Sullivan comments on a tweet from someone named Iowahawkblog:
Barack Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace Prize winners combined.
But Sullivan also puts this tweet into the larger context of Obama’s Nobel Prize speech:
I believe that force can be justified on humanitarian grounds, as it was in the Balkans, or in other places that have been scarred by war. Inaction tears at our conscience and can lead to more costly intervention later. That is why all responsible nations must embrace the role that militaries with a clear mandate can play to keep the peace.
