Everything is ok - Run two wars, win Nobel Peace Prize

Posted on:October 09 2009

When I wondered how a man who is currently running two huge illegal wars and even just increased the amount of deployed troops in one of them can receive a Nobel Peace Prize (I mean, really, wtf?), I remembered this nice, not really related video:

We need somebody doing this in Austria in Germany as well :)


erm, he (re)started dialogues with Cuba and North Korea, he stopped the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic (thus taking a lot of friction out of the regional conflicts with Russia), his policies are directed towards peaceful dialogues as means to resolve international conflicts, etc., pretty big accomplishments for such a little period of time, don't you think? And so far it looks like he's seriously trying to fix the sh*tholes left behind by the previous presidency, nationally and internationally.

Also remember, the two wars weren't started by him, they were forced upon him.

But niko has a valid point here, reinforcing troops for continuing wars only some weeks before receiving a peace nobel price doesn't add up.
Obama is a great precident, but this doesn't fit together.

Yes his current action seems anti-peace and that should be taken in account. He is really no Einstein or Mother Teressa.

I suppose there are other ppl who deserve the price more than him.

Great vid btw.

Now get all back to work and stop losing valuable shopping time!

My first impression on your article:

I think Obama has the potential to earn this award, he just hasn't yet by a long shot. I think it does him more harm than good to get it right now. Seriously though, criticising him for listening to commanders in a war he inherited is stretching pretty hard for ammunition, considering all the positive things he's already done and committed to do.

Great video though.

I WANT to end the war too. Do I get the nobel prize now???

That I can agree with you on. You win the Nobel Prize for doing something, not talking about doing it and having no progress.

I think the Nobel Prize Committee goofed up allowing hype to get in the middle of a impartial decision.
