    Nobel Committee Asked to Strip Obama's Peace Prize

    By Noel Sheppard | March 22, 2011 | 10:09

    As "Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined" was posted all over the internet at various social networking sites Monday, the President of Bolivia along with a Russian political leader launched a campaign to get this dubious honor stripped from Barack Obama in the wake of his attack on Libya.


    As Digital Journal reported:
    [​IMG]Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009.
    Zhirinovsky said the attacks were "another outrageous act of aggression by NATO forces and, in particular, the United States," and that the attacks demonstrated a "colonial policy" with "one goal: to establish control over Libyan oil and the Libyan regime." He said the prize was now hypocritical as a result.
    Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed the call: "How is it possible that a Nobel Peace Prize winner leads a gang to attack and invade? This is not a defence of human rights or self-determination."

    I would add:

    What business does the Nobel Comittee have awarding something to someone that hadn't DONE anything of NOTE to earn it...

    Will he give it back? And the Monetary prize?

    *I DOUBT IT*

    Considering they gave it to him for, well, NOTHING!!! The Nobel Peace Prize is no longer a prize. It's lost it's credibility. No one will care any more who gets it.

    He can ask all he wants, doesn't mean anyone agrees with him. I think I'll ask that Cheney/Bush be brought up on war crimes charges...

    Seems right to me.

    Jimmy Carter was not a war monger. There was not a war during his presidency. He got his award for all his humanitarian work since, which he continues to this day.

    It depends on your defininition of "Peace." For far to many people peace is defined as the lack of conflict. True peace, however, is the resolution of conflict. For many of our recent recipients they have gotten their prize not for the resolution of a given conflict, but for basically a lull in the fighting over said conflict. True Clauswitzian resolution requires the conditions for the start of the conflict to be completely resolved, anything else is simply a break in the fighting.
