Obama accepts Nobel Peace Prize

President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize by laying out a detailed case for war, making the argument that the Afghanistan conflict is necessary to keep America and other nations safe. {Watch The Video}

“We must begin by acknowledging the hard truth,” Obama said, repeatedly evoking the notion of a “just war.” “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.”

Obama quoted presidents and past peace prize recipients like Martin Luther King, who preached non-violence, yet said such ideals could not be his only guide, as the commander-in-chief of a nation at war on two fronts.
