Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for his commitment to non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

Bolivian President Evo Morales has called for US President Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize to be revoked following his decision to attack Libya.


So what does one have to do with the other? Yes I see the irony of someone given a peace prize to be firing missles into another country, but your own post says the was given the peace prize "for his commitment to non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.", has that changed? Unless he is handing over nuclear materials to Libya I see no reason his peace prize should be revoked.

Again, I see and understand the irony, but realize that you cannot give an award for one thing and then later ask to take it away based upon something totally different.

He was given the award not for what he had accomplished, but for what he was promising to accomplish...This is a first I believe.

"Nobel officials said their stunning pick was meant to build momentum behind Obama's initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism. "

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

"Hope" shouldn't win you any prizes. You might be correct, but that makes the prize worthless. How many single mothers working two jobs and staying up late to make sure her kids get their homework done, so that they may have a better life than her, and all the while incarnating hope and love and kindness, are out in the world right now? How many of them always have a kind ear, or a kind word for their family and friends and neighbors? How many of them are actually making a positive difference in their small slice of the world despite their own circumstances? Millions go unrecognized day after day after day!

Maybe the Nobel committee should have taken a stroll down to the working part of town and tried to see what HOPE really looks like in the face of overwhelming adversity, and picked some candidates that are actually taking actions to improve their situations, instead of just empty words!

Now, what do Evo Morales and Mr. Zhirniovsky exactly incarnate...?

yeah, exactly.

Maybe so, but all I can HOPE for now is he hasn't screwed the US so much that we can't recover. And I HOPE he's having a good time with our bailout which he left on the back of me and my kids and their kids and their kids to pay.

What war did he start exactly?

I don't know much about american history but he seems to be rather peaceful in comparison to most other war hungry american presidents the US has had in the past.

He also seems to promote diversity and equality, much more than any other president in the past or am I wrong again? Don't BS me about equal opportunity, since it's more than obvious that opportunity is given to those who inherit it, not those who earn it. I'm glad that for once, there's a US president is above such things.

I never understood why he was awarded the thing in the first place. And I was on the Obama bandwagon for awhile there. Not so much anymore. Even before the Libya action.


He won because he could give a nice speech at the awards.....He was the SH*T at the time to some people

What did he say before getting elected, something about pulling out of Iraq. Let's see where are we now, Iraq, Libya and Afganistan. Are US soliders still coming home in Cedar boxes? Yea they are and for what? Sending good people to do greedy mens work is not a man of peace.

He got it because he is "black". Really, that's why. All the hoopla and PC craze in the US, and here is Obama being the "1st black president", they wanted to give him the reward. It's simply because his skin is a darker than white hue, that he was given this. He has done nothing/did nothing, there is no other reason.

Good!
I really don't think he cares.

This is 100% true. Among other superficial reasons.

But hope does not equal accomplishments.

Obama had only been in office a few days when it was awarded and couldn't possibly have accomplished anything to deserve the award.

Hell, he's now been in office over 2 years and still hasn't done anything to deserve the NPP.

Strip it from obama!

OK I see


I guess the Nobel comittee from a EU point of view received Obama's election as a fresh breath of new air that could change the world in a positive way. Ok maybe he was rewarded in advance.

I'm in the mind of the Nobel comissioner now: lets give the most powerful man on Earth the prize right now for what he says // what he says is enough to be rewarded with a Nobel Prize in these turbulent times // To reward in advance might be a way of keeping track of his further movements? no- I dont think so but what he says is peaceful enough NOW so lets give him that piece of stone and gold right now...

But who looks at obama's election that way now? Not so many, not by a long shot.

Again, a false assumption by the Nobel people. And one not born out be actual deeds by obama.

Take away the prize!

You might be right, but why not wait a year? We are all familiar with politicians, we all know that they over-promise and under-deliver. What was the rush? Why couldn't they wait to see him in action? There were plenty of other worthy candidates, no harm would have been done by waiting a little while. Instead the tarnished the prize yet again. They tarnished it with Al Gore's work of outright fiction winning, and they tarnished it again with Obama.

And, I won't even go back to the award for Viagra! That one might not have been their fault. Who knew that one of the greatest heart health breakthroughs ever would quickly be railroaded, taken off the market for heart health, and repackaged as a drug to give old men erections? That one might not have been their fault.

The Moron never should have got it in the first place. Let's hope this is true and they strip him of the prize then impeach him for all the lies....oh yeah he's a politician...nuff said

They made a mistake and should have given him the Nobel War prise. The kill and take over and destroy other peoples lives while you sit at your desk prise.

War and Peace look vary similar when all you see is just #.

Haha you're right absolutely agree --- and probbably the more prizes we came across the worse all this "prizity" criteria would be getting. I clearly understand your point. But I think, I mean, we should be blaming the Nobel Comissioners a lot more than the Rewardeds. What your President was saying was truly Peaceful in that time.. I remember that clearly and now the strange Norway Spiral the night before... Hehe with today's perspective those two facts were maybe acting like a CAUTION YOU'RE ENTERING EVEN WEIRDER TIMES signal

Who cares who gets what prize, its a bit like all your mates telling you that you are great, when everyone else knows that you suck eggs. The only prize that the masses will ever get, will be delivered by one of these so called prize winners, in the form of something very very horrible.

Most awards / prizes amuse me, its a bit like someone who cuts their own arm of to get out of a bad bad situation and we call them a hero, we are off the mark, what they really are is a survivor and not a hero at all. It is much like an animal that will chew its own foot off to get out of a trap to survive, there is no heroics about it, just pure survival.

Real hero's and those that deserve a prize are mostly never acknowledged or given such, look at most of our service men whom often are deserving, doing a devious governments deeds, they generally get screwed and with no prize or money to boot, history has established this time and time again.

So give little prizes of honor to who ever you want, as they mean very little by the end of the day, except for those that buy into such rubbish. Actions speak louder than words and little trophies given by elite clubs.

I do blame the Nobel committee for awarding obama the NPP when he didn't deserve it, and not obama.

Now I want them to right their wrong.

Take back the NPP!
