And that warranted the peace prize? lol Liberals love to give awards to themselves. Since Bush went to war with overwhelming surrort from congress (they voted twice to go to war) and the intelligence that propelled us to war was based on Clinton's intel, and the intel of MANY other nations. Democrats basically voted for us to go to war and then abandoned the troops as a new election cycle approached. John Kerry compared our troops to terrorists attacking women and children in the dead of night. (I forget the exact quote)

Trump is not in this for awards. He is going to do what he thinks is best for the country and I doubt he will let focus groups decide his actions like democrats do.


Oh, I wasn't justifying him getting the Nobel Peace Prize; just that you using it as ammunition against him in this manner seemed a tad unaware as to how the Nobel Prize is given out as a whole. Your response only confirms my suspicion that you haven't a clue how the Nobel Prizes are given out at all. So there's that.

Obama had stated that he was going to pull out from the war when he was first elected. Republicans rejected this notion, stating that we needed to finish what we started. Which, indirectly, you could argue that because of Republican resistance to pulling out of conflicts that the US had engaged in during the Bush era we were able to take down what most consider the "head honcho" (Osama Bin Laden).

Don't fool yourself, kid. Trump is in it for the business; not the people nor the prizes. Prizes would only mean that he has more merit when pitching his next great idea as a civilian. He's going to allow lobbyists and businessmen dictate his actions; to ensure that when he's no longer the POTUS that he can continue to sustain his businesses.

Edit:

Even if he is in it for the business, this doesn't necessarily mean that he'll "doom the US". It more so means that he will focus more on policies that will allow his organizations to exploit loopholes (which will become policies instead of "skirting around the rules"). This could yield some benefits to the most corrupted companies that are facing criticism for offshore factories and call centers (as there's a chance they'll come back to the US). But I wouldn't say that he's even thinking about the "common person". He's more fixated on himself and his organizations than the country as a whole.

But you see bush didn't win the Nobel Peace Prize. He was an evil republican (even though democrats voted for the war twice.) fighting a war for Oil and other vast treasures that have been hidden away in a secret Republican base somewhere (moon base maybe?). Obama was a man of peace that spent his 8 years bombing innocents and supplying arms to ISIS, but that's just fine because, well, Bush.




based on information Bush provided that turned out to be lies. Did you forget that part?


Probably not forgetting as much as not caring, knowing him.

Yep he has a bad case of RWSMD

Actually it was based on years of intel from the Clinton years and intel from our allies. Everyone said Iraq Has WMD's Iraq even bragged about their WMD's. Iraq also violated the ceasefire agreement of the first war by shooting missiles at Allied planes patrolling the agreed upon No-fly zones. Iraq also launched missiles into Israel. Iraq used chemical weapons to kill tens of thousand of Kurds. Now while France was stabbing us in the back in the UN in the lead up to the war, many Russian convoys were spotted driving from Iraq to Syria Did they deliver Saddam's WMD's to Assad? could be, since chemical weapons were also used in Syria multiple times while Assad wiped his backside with Obama's red line.

It's hard to rewrite history when there are still people around who remember what happened. Try again in 30 or 40 years.

The Nobel Peace Prize is and always be a political affair and not a true award for accomplishments.

There are 2 main sects of muslim Arabs and that's why they have been fighting each other for thousands of years. I didn't know Obama was a muslim, but if he is, I'm sure he is only bombing the other sect that he does not belong to.

Obama dropped 26,171 bombs on Arabs in 2016, an increase of 3,000 over 2015. It looks like our Nobel Peace Prize winning commander in chief sent 2016 out with a bang! I'm not sure what percentage of bombs hit hospitals, schools and friendly convoys.


Oh, so you don't know, then. Well, good to say so.

NIce, what a pointless thread. I highly doubt you give any fucks about bombs being dropped on Muslim countries, furthermore you even go out of your way to attempt to blame the Iraq war on the Clintons. Awesome work.
