In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

Irony is supporting a justified war? no, I don't see the irony.

I see it just fine -- anyone supporting war, justified or no, should be even getting nominated for Nobel Peace Prizes, let alone winning them!

I don't think there are too many Nobel Peace Prize winners that would agree there are no justifiable wars.

If that were a criteria, I think you'd have to remove 80% of the laureates. Certainly every American from Roosevelt to Carter, Nelson Mandela, nearly all the Israeli and Palestinian winners...

Well, think about it. Supporting a justified war I can understand, though personally I don't condone it. It's timing that I find ironic. Talking about supporting a justified war during his acceptance speech for a Nobel peace prize, that for me is the hight of irony.

Come on!!! Justified war??

Tell me a single war that did not have justification, for at least one of it's initiators. If they didn't find justification, then why would they have started it?. Talking about justified war is an irony in itself.

Justified war is just war.

"I support justified war" included in the acceptance speach for a nobel *peace prize*.

seriously.. you don't see the irony in that situation?
