It’s an actual miracle that they made the Bono speech actually work and be a positive element of the performance
The Bono Speech is actually essential and interwoven in the narrative of this song and part of the composition
If the song is about being shock and angered by terrorism and then being inspired to form a peace movement and make a difference which then inspire other people to join the movement.
Then you have to incorporate a speech that inspires the audience enough for them to join the song and hence symbolically join the movement depicted in the song.
So despite agreeing with all the snark toward the Bono speech I never get annoyed by it because despite all the terrible Bono speech, the one time it works makes all the previously bad speech worth the while
