Nobel Peace Prize


 

Comments

What a complete farce! The Nobel Peace Prize should be awarded for a person's contribution towards life. It is completely wrong for Obama to receive this prize, as he is responsible/guilty of the murder of innocent babies (i.e. killing via his abortion policies).

Is "peace" the same as "life"? Do you mean "human life"? Are you a Poe?

If you said continuing a war is not peaceful then you'd have a point.

You're entitled to disagree with the award, but nonsensical assertions only make ignorable.

Here are a couple interesting arguments in support of Obama winning the prize:

"The justification for the prize, while certainly unexpected and a bit tenuous, is indeed rooted in fact. Obama has long been a booster for non-proliferation, and his speech and lobbying at the UN General Assembly and Security Council proved to be quite successful." http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/10/obamas-prize-for-peace.html

"Rachel Maddow does an excellent job explaining how the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded in the past and why President Obama deserved to receive the award." : http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/heather/rachel-maddow-nobel-peace-prize-and-obama

The Peace prize is going to be somewhat political no matter how you slice it. Those with a longer track record are definitely going to get less back biting after the award is made.

From my end, it seems that the committee was making a statement about the change in U.S. policy - i.e., not Bush - but also to encourage more of the same - i.e., think about the path(s) you're taking.
