Peace Prize winner justifies war

President Obama in his Nobel acceptance speech,
"I face the world as it is, and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people," he said in his acceptance speech. "For make no mistake: evil does exist in the world.

To say that force is sometimes necessary is not a call to cynicism -- it is a recognition of history; the imperfections of man and the limits of reason."
