Bless Barack Obama

A good test of whether or not Obama is doing the right thing is to see if the Left is mad at him. He did the right thing in bombing Libya. And the Left is mad at him.

There are some that are even calling for his Nobel Peace prize to be rescinded. His winning it in the first place was questionable, but to suggest that it should be taken away for bombing Libya is ludicrous. Last time I checked my history books, I noted that some of the most peaceful times in our history resulted from people dropping bombs.

One of the shortcomings of the Left is their inability to distinguish between peace and peacemaking. Unfortunately, in this fallen world, it is sometimes necessary to kill people to achieve peace. Peace can be sought in many ways. Sometimes negotiations and treaties work, and sometimes bombs work. It depends on the situation and the parties involved. In the case of a violent, godless dictator like Quadafi, bombs were the best alternative.

If we look to Scripture, we note that it says "blessed are the peacemakers" (Matthew 5:9), not "blessed are the peaceful". Sometimes peacemakers have to drop bombs. Bless Barack Obama.
