While perhaps it would be quite easy for me to take a cynical view of the speech, and cite examples where it appears Obama may be trying to seek political points, and particularly serve the global warming agenda through a long range equation of how it promotes world peace, including asserting it as overwhelming consensus scientific fact, I would prefer to take his words with an objective view and note the concepts contained in them and how much impact they could have from a global stage delivered to all nations in the world.
It is obviously premature to give such an award to someone with little by way of accomplishment towards peace. Obama definitely compensated for this by offering three ways to promote world peace.
Creating stronger ties between nations to deter the unscrupulous actions of regimes, such as nuclear proliferation and genocide, in unison - acting as an internatioonal juggernaut, is essential in persuading such despots to practice restraint.
Insistence on human rights in all nations is vital to allow the varying religious followings to co-exist, where it is all to obvious the repercussions where such intolerance exists.
Investing in a nation's education, agriculture and overall economies is also a vital ingredient to long range peace, evidenced by our failure to do so in Afghanistan earlier.
All in all, it was a profound speech and may well be an important page in history. Obama's intellect went beyond the reading of words from a teleprompter. He understands the motives behind our actions in the middle east and beyond, and shed more light on these areas for me and the world. His leadership showed in this speech will hopefully bring greater cooperation from other countries in our efforts in Afghanistan, and thus bring our troops home sooner. Moreover, with stronger effort by all nations towards the ideals he covered, future situations like the one in Afghanistan will be dramatically reduced.
