President Barack Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize. His win surprising because nominations were in just before he became US President. But his calls for dialogue as a means to settle disputes was already well known. The United States is still at war in places around the world, but peace is never an absence of war (who said that?). War and armies can be used to proctect the helpless; previous foes can be friends if they “Unclench their Fists”. That appears to be President Obama’s thesis.
