The Nobel Peace Prize Lost All Credibility… Again

OK let’s set the way back machine to 1895. In this year through the will of an industrialist named Alfred Nobel the Nobel peace prize was established. The award according to the late Mr. Nobel’s will would got to:

to the person who shall have 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.

Of course this prize lost all legitimacy in 2007 when Al Gore won it due to his scam known as global warming (oops sorry I forgot it’s a record cold year this year so it’s now called climate change). Well the prize that is supposed to be handed out to those that work to bring peace has been awarded to the Obamessiah.

Yup that’s right less than one year in his first term and accomplishing nothing to further peace Obama is the recipient of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. It seems strange that a man who promised to pull us out of Iraq and Afghanistan and has done nothing to further either sentiment won a prize for the person who did the most to promote peace.

You have to love this quote:

Asked why the prize had been awarded to Mr Obama less than a year after he took office, Nobel Committee head Thorbjoern Jagland said: “It was because we would like to support what he is trying to achieve”.

Well in that case I believe I should win the 2010 award since I’m promoting the idea of pulling our troops out of every foreign country and therefore ending a lot of wars. Come on guys do you want to support me and what I’m trying to achieve?

Seriously the award is supposed to be given out to “to the person who shall have done the most or the best work.” See the important clause there “have done” implying the person actually did something. The wording doesn’t state “shall do” or “shall possibly maybe consider” or even “shall make a promise and make no effort to keep it.”

Yeah I’m sorry I’m a little bitter. Not because a person I don’t like won the award but because the person who won it has done NOTHING to further the progress of peace.
