Peace Prize

Pardon my confusion, but I'm having trouble conflating "Barack Obama" with "Nobel Peace Prize."

My first reaction is, "huh?"

Setting the question of Afghanistan aside for now, let's look at America, the nation Obama is supposedly in charge of:  a totally-owned subsidiary of the military-industrial complex, most highly-militarized nation on the planet, spending more on military activities than the rest of the planet combined.  Has this changed one iota under Obama?  Have I been missing something here?

I always thought Obama was a total suck-up to the powers-that-be, whether it be Goldman Sachs or the Pentagon.  Now all of a sudden he's a man of peace? 

I realize that Obama is all about image, but this is ridiculous.  Damn, he's good!
