Obama Accepts Peace Prize..Oh, and Sends 30,000 More Troops Into AfPak!

Is our president speaking out of both sides of his face? A peace prize on one hand and escalation of the Afghan war on the other? It seems a bit contradictory. Here's a sample of the Middle Eastern outlook:

"He is a disappointment. He has done nothing," says Khodr Hayek, a businessman in the Haret Hreik neighborhood of southern Beirut, an area of staunch support for the militant Shiite Hezbollah. "If he was serious, he should have done something by now. He said Israel shouldn't build settlements, but the Israelis didn't care. No one is listening to him."

Mind you, not everyone in the Middle East feel that Pres. Obama is a complete disappointment. Some say the area needs to give him more time, let him work out a few details. 

My view? Well, let's just say I am anti-war. Take that as you will.

Let me know how you feel.
