Obama Insinuates U.S. Did Not "Follow Rules of the Road" After 9/11; Says U.S. "Cannot Act Alone" - Video 12/10/09



Here is video of President Obama's during his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech today in Oslo, Norway. In this clip, Obama can't resist insinuating that the United States did not "follow the rules of the road" ourselves after 9/11 in taking military action against Iraq. He never mentioned Iraq explicitly, but the clear insinuation was there.

He also declared what could be seen as the "Obama Doctrine." In stating his view on use of force, he made the statement "American cannot act alone." Now, what I hope he means is that it will be difficult for America to succeed if we act alone. We must always be prepared to act alone if necessary to defend America's interests and national security.

Obama had earlier in the speech made the case for "just war," and had even said "non-violence could not have stopped Hitler's armies."

Quite simply, we did not follow the rules of the road in invading Iraq. Iraq had nothing to do with Al Qaeda. We chose to invade Iraq, with or without international support.

> "Iraq had nothing to do with Al Qaeda"

Yeah right, you just keep telling yourself that.

But even if there wasn't a connection between the two, even if saddam was not a major funding source for terrorism around the world, even if he wasn't known to have already used WMDs against his own people, even if there was not a mountain of evidence that if he did not already have WMDs he was taking steps to insure that he could get them, even if all that was not true...

The very fact that he had already tried to have a former president, George H. Bush, assassinated was an act of war by any definition of the term. That alone was reason enough to take him out. So the question here is not whether or not George W Bush should have gone into Iraq. The real question is why slick willie did not have the nuggets to do so.

We are the United States of America. We do not require permission from, or the support of the world to do what we see as being in our own best interest. We do not owe even the slightest obeisance (contrary to what B.O. seems to think). Nor do we owe the world an apology for anything we have done (again contrary to whatever B.O. thinks).

The fact is that the world owes us. It owes us for preventing it being under the thumb of would be tyrants like Hitler, Stalin or some islamo-fascist imam, ayatollah or caliph. It owes us for leading the way to government by the governed. It owes us for the superior standard of living available to those who refuse to kowtow to communism, fascism, or any other kind of totalitarianism. And if nothing else. It owes us for the fact that we are the largest provider of food to the world.

the man has to be one of the most ignortant and arrogant people I have ever seen. And I am a recovering liberal who voted for Howard Dean!

but heck no! I am sick and tired of this coward blaming Bush, and even more, much more offensive, blaming America

At least I'm happy he didnt apologize and diss America openly. But I'm sure it will business as usual for the marxist the next time he speaks outside the country.
