And Obama Wins A Nobel ‘Peace’ Prize For… ?

The President of the United States has been awarded this year’s Nobel peace prize. The Nobel Committee said he won it for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples”. He is trying to bridge relations between the Muslims and the West, calls for global peace and prosperity etc, but, lets take a look at the other side.

The United States is currently involved in not one, but two wars, due to which million of innocent lives have been destroyed, and now a third war against Iran is threatening to take place.

But what has Obama done that he has received this prestigious award ? Well the answer to that is ‘nothing’. He promised to start pulling troops out of Iraq, within months of assuming office, that hasn’t happened yet. In fact the Obama administration is constantly delaying the withdrawal of US marines from Iraq. He has taken no action to stop the ever growing Israeli settlements in Palestine, drone attacks in Pakistan continue which is affecting Pak-U.S. relations and thus a trust deficit between the two.
The war Afghanistan seems to have no end, eight years after the invasion, the taliban still control 80% of the war-torn country and Obama is planning to send an additional 23,000 troops to Afghanistan. The Guantanamo Bay continues to operate and abuse the prisoners present there, both mentally and physically, most of them are being held on charges that have never been proved.

Obama hasn’t even completed a year in office and the Nobel Committee has handed him the ‘peace’ award. I have no idea what made this committee to give this award to a man who practically hasn’t done anything (yet) for global peace. Even Gandhi couldn’t get the Nobel Prize, but Obama did. Amazing indeed.

    But Obama handled it well, stating its a call to ‘action’…. in effect admitting nothing had been done to deserve this.

    On the hand, what happened to the Nobel committee, started giving out peace prizes to warring nations!
