Call It Irony. . .Obama Picks Up Peace Prize After Sending More Troops To War

President Barack Obama is in Norway to receive the Nobel Peace Prize bestowed upon him only after a short time in office.

While attending the Peace Prize Signing Ceremony Thursday, Obama commented that he was honored to be awarded the prize and congratulated the Nobel Committee for the work that it's done over the course of history to highlight the cause of peace.

Funny thing is, Barack Obama is a wartime president. The President, just last week, ordered an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan [Lee, Carol (2009-12-1). President Obama 'accelerates' 30,000 troops to Afghanistan. Politico. Retrieved on 2009-12-10.].

Ironic, isn't it?
