Obama to be Ex-Nobel Laureate?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

With the US spearheading attacks on Libya, high-ranking officials have  launched a campaign aimed at revoking Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Bolivian President Evo Morales asks “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.”

Vice-Chairman of the Russian State Vladimir Zhirinovsky wrote that the attacks were “another outrageous act of aggression by… the United States… to establish control over Libyan oil and the Libyan regime.”

These calls to strip Obama of his honor echo similar sentiments expressed by the Arab League, who criticized the strikes from the west shortly after the no-fly zone was implemented.

So what if Obama has fired more missiles than all the other Nobel Peace winners combined, all the while maintaining two huge wars and the whole torture-facility he never got around to closing? At least the Nobel Peace Prize still has more name credibility than Gaddafi’s Prize for Human Rights.
