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!

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...

You're missing the point. The irony is in the timing when he said that, he spoke of war while receiving the peace prise.
Does anyone know why he received it? What, exactly, has he done? Or did someone just pull out the race card?

I don't see where StychoKiller said that, which was the comment I was responding to. And at least 3 people modded it up, so it seemed worthwhile to correct.

Is there any irony in a comment replying directly to me being oblivious to threaded comments?

Given the list of assholes and mass murderers that won the nobel peace prize, I'd refuse it.

Hell, even Adolf Hitler is a nobel laureate. Glad to know that Obama does "it" better and won.

Hitler was nominated as a protest of another nomination
and the nomination was retracted a few days later. It wasn't serious.
