Congratulations to President Obama for being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. This is truly an honor and there is no person more deserving of winning this prestigious prize than our Beloved President. In winning the Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama joins other deserving and peaceful winners of this prize such as Henry Kissinger, Woodrow Wilson, and Yasser Arafat.
Clearly, ordering an additional 17,000 Americans soldiers to fight in Afghanistan less than a month after assuming office is a major example of just how peaceful President Obama can be. The President is also considering major troop increases for the Afghan War–perhaps as many as 30,000-40,000, another sign of just how committed to peace this man is.
Remember that other War, you know–the one in Iraq that you heard about daily when President Bush was in office? Candidate Obama pledged to withdraw all of our troops from Iraq within 18 months. We are now about half way to the 18 month timeline, and President Obama has made major progress towards his goal of a withdrawal (at his inauguration, 142,000 American soldiers were in Iraq–we now have ONLY 124,000). Major troop withdrawals like this provide just another reason why President Obama deserved this award so much.
I for one am glad that the Nobel Prize committee chose to award the prize for rhetoric, rather than actions. I for one am so tired of people who actually make the world a more peaceful place. Its about time that someone was rewarded just for talking about problems, instead of doing something about them.
Nominations for this award had to be received by February 1st, 2009. President Obama was inaugurated at noon on January 20th, meaning that he was awarded this prize for12 whole days of rhetoric. If sending 17,000 more troops to war and 12 days of rhetoric can win a man a Nobel Peace Prize, is there any way that sending an additional 30,000-40,000 troops off to war and an additional year of rhetoric can prevent President Obama from winnning a second Nobel?
And get ready: The Nobel Prize Committee will announce the winner of Nobel Prize in Economics on Monday. If a man who sends thousands of soldiers off to die can win a prize for peace, the same man who’s economic policies have pushed the Nation to the brink of bankruptcy (while recreating the bubbles which just burst–thereby putting the economy at risk again) ought to be a lock to win the Nobel Prize in Economics.
