Weeeeeelllllll, here's what the nobel peace prize is awarded for: "for the person who has done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

Since Obama was always trying to get the word out to other nations about the US being more friendly in the future, and trying to restrengthen bonds, (beat) ah screw it. I'll let the Nobel Committee chairman do the justifying. And I quote from 2011, "[President Obama] paved the way for new negotiations with the Russian Federation about nuclear arms. If you look at the will of Alfred Nobel that goes directly to what he said that the prize should go to the person that has worked for—he called it reduction of standing armies but in today's terms it means arm control and disarmament."

And Obama did admit that he was sheepish to receive the award. I suppose then the award is a question and a challenge to Obama always: "They say you are a man for peace. Is this true?" I'm not saying that the US has been entirely peaceful the last 4 years, but he has tried as commander in chief and face of the nation to pull something together without alienating those with more amicable intentions. It's far from perfect, but hey. A prize for peace never pleases anyone. (unless it's red cross, who somehow managed repeat wins due to war)

Please no flamers. Please no flamers. Please no flamers.

The igNobel is for what you HAVE accomplished, not for what you MIGHT accomplish. If good intentions were the sole criteria for giving away that award, then EVERY POLITICO IN THE WORLD would deserve the igNobel.

Ei, qual a surpresa? :roll:
Estamos falando da Academia Sueca, que em 1974 concedeu o Prêmio Nobel de Economia para Gunnar Myrdal e Friedrich Hayek; ou seja acendeu uma vela para Deus e outra para o Diabo no mesmo dia...
O Premio Nobel é MESMO assim TÃO respeitável? Pfff...

You cannot tell me that out of the supposed 150-200 people on the list of nominees, Barack Obama has done the most good?

So, if you want to win a Nobel Peace Prize you have to bomb Afghanistan and threaten Iran. And don't forget to militarize SouthAmerica.

Oh God, what a crazy world...

Personally, I believe that he has done enough to be eligable, but not the first choice. We'll just have to see what he does with it before we can judge.

If you refuse to have an open mind, you will not get anywhere, because there will always be those just as stubborn as you on the other side. If you become dynamic and flexable, you'll be able to navigate around obstacles such as people and opposition.

becoming flexible is not always a good thing. I'm all for open mindedness and bringing people together, but some things are not negotiable. Tho lives of the Afghans, for instance, are not negotiable. You negotiate with life and all of a sudden you can kiss your human rights and ethics goodbye. If we are honest with ourselves, we already have. It's not under bush that American G20 protesters are being gassed in the streets by police and military troops- it's under Obama. This man, as likable as he may be, has done nothing to deserve a peace prize, but has done much to deserve an International Criminal Court subpoena.

True, there are many issues on which we must remain resolute, and the lives of other human beings is one of them.

I am not flexible when it comes to the death of innocent noncombatents. These murders are unacceptable.

Although, you cannot blame the leader for what his soldiers have done without his concent. Obama has not ordered deadly attacks on civilians, unless of course I am wrong and you or someone else can provide a document proving so. We can't say he is the criminal, and we can't say that the coalition soldiers in Afganistan, including the US, are the only or even the primary cause of civilian death in that country, seeing as how there are bombings and ambushes almost constantly.

If you want to really fix problems in that country, don't trash the leader. All that will do is tell those on the ground that they have free reign and the person at the top will take the fall, leaving them to keep doing what they're doing.

As a single person, Obama has not done anything wrong. We shouldn't be so quick as this to attack him. That is how irrational decisions are made.

If there is anyone responsible, it's the leaders, the planners and the architects. Obama has authorized numerous deadly attacks on civilians, it's what leaders do, when they declare war, and deploy troops (they ain't there to give out flowers, you know):

Not to say that soldiers are not responsible for what they do, but given that I come from one of the most militarized societies in the world, I tend to forgive the brainwashed, to an extent. Especially as their leaders love to prosecute them, for things they have authorized to do.

MouseDenton Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2009
Well, that's where I have trouble with your evidence--I can't find any physical proof that such orders have been made. And when it comes to military organization, a small attack on any target is not going to make it all the way to the top, unless such an attack was on a target that would result in massive political repercussions. The leaders usually give the ground forces permission to use any and all means necessary to achieving their objectives, which leaves the deffinition of what is necessary to the planers and generals in the field, and such decisions often involve risking the lives of non-combatants.

If the president of the United States was consulted for each and every military action, or even 80% of them, they would be completely overwhelmed, and have no remaining time to do anything else.

That's the point of a decision tree, most of the decisions are made at the bottom, and only the large decisions are made by the people at the top.

If you want physical proof, you can take a plane to Afghanistan, Pakistan or Iraq. Or come here, I'll be your guide and show you exactly what the Obama foreign policy creates by way of peace. Better yet, join a G20 protest, because that's what an all out war against citizens looks like. You asked for a document. That was the most comprehensive one, I've read lately. It's got links, and that's a highly respected writer, that wrote a book about Obama, as well as constant articles. From my experience with war mongers, don't fool yourself to think that they care who they kill, or don't know who was there. Even if it didn't make it all the way to the top, it's under his command, as you said. His command should be "get out of there", instead you give him a free pass to kill on foreign soil, by ignoring reports of mass murder. Another thing I can share from experience is that there are rarely repercussions- as evidence, I submit the infamous "I want to move forward".

Risking lives is not an option. This is what I talked about in the beginning. On the self-centered front, we must understand that if we choose to negotiate life of others then we are fare game. On the more humane front- compassion, my friend, is missing from our philosophies of survival.

A Nobel-Peaceprize for a President who refuses the Punishment for Criminal-Torturers, only because they are Americans, too? oO

A Nobel-Peaceprize for someone who wants more military Presense in Afghanistan? xD

This is not a Nobel-Peaceprize, this is a Prize of Shit.
