In The News: In Oslo Norway, at the presentation of president Obama's Nobel Peace Prize, a strange and animated light appeared in the sky. Was it a failed Russian Missile test or is Obama an alien 'messenger from god'?

You be the judge:

Meanwhile, Juan Cole lists the "Top Things that would Redeem Obama's Peace Prize"
The world has noted has noted the irony that President Barack Obama is delivering his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize after launching an escalation of the Afghanistan war. Of course, the critique is a little misplaced, since the prize is for a specific policy success, not for being a pacifist.

Still, Mr. Obama was clearly given the prize to encourage him in the direction of peace. It is the tragedy of the sole superpower that it is unconstrained by peers and so can launch wars of choice and shatter international law at will. It can be counseled but not blocked. He was awarded this honor as a counsel.

So here are the things Obama can do to redeem his prize... [In Full]
Why the "Stealth'? The Taliban has no radar... The US has been revealed to be flying 'stealth drones' out of Kandahar Afghanistan and the Iranians (quite legitimately) suspect the UAVs are being used to spy on their nuclear programs.

South Korea will return 300 troops to Afghanistan [Korea Times]. They HAD made a deal with the Taliban after a hostage situation a while back that they would withdraw permanently. They did withdraw, but apparently NOT 'permanently'. The Taliban IS NOT pleased and have implied they will target those forces and any other Koreans in the country.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich has introduced two bills in congress seeking to cease the funding and totally end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. If it goes to debate (and that's a BIG 'if'), there will be record as to who supports the war, and who doesn't, and which congresspeople believe that the US can make wars without a declaration of such... but certainly don't expect more than a handful of congress-critters to eschew the military-industrial pork barrel for their district by a vote for either of these bills.
The Founders of the US Constitution intended that the power to wage war reside directly under the authority of the peoples’ representatives in Congress. The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (also known as the War Powers Act) has several provisions, but we’ll focus on this part in the section on Congressional Action:
…at any time that United States Armed Forces are engaged in hostilities outside the territory of the United States, its possessions and territories without a declaration of war or specific statutory authorization, such forces shall be removed by the President if the Congress so directs by concurrent resolution.

A concurrent resolution of Congress requires a majority vote of the members of the Senate and the House.

Another way for Congress to end the wars is to refuse its funding... [In Full, with video]

In case Tiger Wood's peccadillos took up all the news cycle time up in the news media you listen to and you hadn't heard, five Muslim-American students disappeared a few weeks ago a few weeks ago after leaving a note saying they were going to Pakistan and Afghanistan to join the Jihad. They have been arrested in Pakistan.
