I don't know if everyone is aware that there are 6 Nobel prizes, Peace, Physics, Chemistry, Literature, Economic science and Medicine. I know everyone heard that the half white president was given the Nobel Peace Prize which in my opinion is about the biggest farce I have ever heard.
Let me give you quotes from the Nobel Prize web site for the last 2 winners
2008 winner Marti Ahtisaari
"for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts"
They are talking about more than 3 decades of peace work that is 30 years, sounds like he has dedicated his life to peace, a suitable candidate I think.
2007 Winner IPCC
"for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change"
An entire international group devoted to helping the planet.
2009 Barack Obama
"for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples"
In 2007 and 2008 leading up to receiving the award what were these people doing, working towards there goals, in the case of Mr. Ahtisaari he had been doing this for many years. What was Barack doing, was he working towards to world peace, eliminating nuclear weapons, reducing his carbon footprint, no he was spending millions on a carefully orchestrated political campaign to become president. Telling Americans exactly what they want to hear to get elected and then now that he is elected has he been the savior everyone figured he would be, NO
Will he eliminate nuclear weapons world wide, only a fool would believe that is possible and if it were what would we do with all the weapons grade plutonium and uranium? I know there are lots of militant groups who would love get ahold of some.
If Barack were to accomplish peace between Israel and the Palestinians which I feel will never happen because there are 2 many militants on both sides, but if it were to happen during his term, does this mean all the efforts of both of the Bush’s, the work Bill Clinton did and all of Jimmy Carter’s work had no impact.
The Nobel Peace Prize has just been cheapened, it is suppose to be about accomplishments not wishes and promises, you know what they say The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
PS I will wait for the Secret Service to find me now and take me away to a re-education camp :D
