Obama isn't perfect

I disagree with the argument that Obama shouldn't win the Nobel Peace Prize because he hasn't done anything. He doesn't deserve that prize because his international policies, specifically when it comes to Afghanistan and Pakistan, are no more peaceful than the Bush administration.

Are we still following Obama so blindly that we can't see we're going into another war just like Iraq? Can we please stop arguing about how much Republicans suck when it comes to healthcare reform and focus on the fact that the death toll in Afghanistan is only rising now that the United States has stepped in?

And, by the way, the burka is not a sign of liberation or oppression. Let's not continue to use it as a litmus test for "Democratic victory" among Muslim states.
