Obama’s “Peace Prize” Speech Included A Clear Warning To Secessionist Movements

Here is an excerpt from Obama’s Nobel acceptance speech earlier this month.  His mention of secessionist movements is NO accident and his dictatorial message is clear:

“Moreover, wars between nations have increasingly given way to wars within nations.  The resurgence of ethnic or sectarian conflicts; the growth of secessionist movements, insurgencies, and failed states; have increasingly trapped civilians in unending chaos.  In today’s wars, many more civilians are killed than soldiers; the seeds of future conflict are sewn, economies are wrecked, civil societies torn asunder, refugees amassed, and children scarred.

I do not bring with me today a definitive solution to the problems of war.  What I do know is that meeting these challenges will require the same vision, hard work, and persistence of those men and women who acted so boldly decades ago.  And it will require us to think in new ways about the notions of just war and the imperatives of a just peace.

We must begin by acknowledging the hard truth that we will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes.  There will be times when nations – acting individually or in concert – will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified.”

A response on this speech from DumpDC  says it best:

It is not any secessionist movements anywhere on this globe that have trapped civilians in unending chaos.  That is entirely the purview of the nation-state.  Confiscatory taxation, unending regulation of every facet of human life, and the destruction of our economic system and currency through central planning is the source of unending chaos, both at home and abroad.
