War Is Peace by luvataciousskull War Is Peace by luvataciousskull
"War Is Peace"

This is the first of a series of pieces inspired by Nineteen Eighty-Four. I wanted to do a series that was based on the three slogans of the party, and how they related to current events.

This piece in particular was inspired by the fact that the same week Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, he was considering putting more troops in Afghanistan. When he accepted the award, he had already made the final decision.

"War Is Peace"... in many ways, that was his speech when he accepted the award, that in order for peace to be possible, there must be war. Do I agree? To a degree, yes. One must always be ready and willing to fight in order to preserve oneself, and to that degree, the only way to keep peace sometime is through violence.

War Is Peace - This Message Brought to You by the Ministry of Truth

First off, the Nobel Prize award was nothing more than an ass-kissing.

Second, Obama's party is the reason we are still at war. If our soldiers were allowed to fight the war as it was intended to be fought, it would more than likely be over by now.

More often than not, those who whine about war while their nation is at war are the ones doing the most to prevent peace. Shut up, let our soldiers do their job the right way, and you'll get your precious peace.
