Bombing Obama

Comparisons between politicians are always imperfect, but since Kissinger and Obama were both awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, it seems fair to raise the likeness. Granted, Kissinger was awarded the prize after conducting the most intense bombing campaign in history, and Obama still has a ways to go to match his record of war crimes, but in terms of his attitude toward unwarranted aggression, they seem to be on the same page. As Obama escalates American belligerence in Central Asia, East Africa, and South America, Presidents Johnson or Nixon may seem more apropos comparisons, but then, they weren’t awarded peace prizes for committing crimes against humanity.
