Enhancing Peace and Security

Bloomberg.com, Bush Preemptive Strike Doctrine Under Review, May Be Discarded.

As I said the other day in Obama Wins Nobel Prize for Not Being Bush,

Best case for the award I can come up: Obama has moved away from the Bush administration policy of pre-emptive self defense. That indeed does contribute significantly to world peace. But it's not noted in the citation, except maybe by implication. Plus, have we officially repudiated the unilateralist elements of the 2002 National Security Strategy of the United States yet?

Glad to see this is on the way.

    It’s good to know that officials agree that some their decisions were wrong. But I think that it doesn’t really matter for those who suffered from that decisions.
    Anyway Michael, you are right when you say “Glad to see this is on the way”.
