Special to The Canadian

OSLO — It had been a day of Nobel pomp and ceremony in Oslo as President Barack Obama became the first sitting U.S. president in 90 years and the third ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Before an evening banquet, Obama and his wife stepped out onto their hotel balcony to wave to a crowd of thousands who had gathered for a torchlight procession. In the square below, there were “Hopenosis” chants of “Yes, we can” and “O-ba-ma” as scores of torches were held aloft.

Earlier, in accepting the award, Obama acknowledged his so-called “accomplishments” are few “compared to some of the giants of history who have received this prize” but promised to use the award to make the world better.Better for who?  The elites who backed his Presidential campaign perhaps.

Although he stressed the need to work toward peace, he justified war in some cases and firmly vowed to protect and defend the United States.   It was Adolf Hitler who also proclaimed the virtues of peace while also preparing for an expansionist global war.
