‘The pursuit of peace is not as romantic as the pursuit of war’. Quote from JFK. Obama presented his case for diplomacy over military action today in the best speech of his presidency. His historical context reaffirmed a consistent view of the right path for the world. Illustrating Iraq War as prelude to Iran’s rise caused by the same NeoCon hawks still spewing serial stridency of soldiers over diplomats. Hyperbole that has led us into the quagmires of the past.
World War II has been over for a very long time. The Cold War was won without a nuclear detonation. Or invading another sovereign nation. Iran Deal epitomizes Obama’s strategy. Peace Prize was truly won today.
