Remembering back to the day when Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize baffles us, probably the bulk of free thinking initiated Americans too.
The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United States President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”. The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama’s promotion of nuclear nonproliferation and a “new climate” in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.
The Nobel Committee’s decision drew mixed reactions from US commentators and editorial writers across the political spectrum, as well as from the rest of the world.
Obama accepted the prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009. In a 36-minute speech, he discussed the tensions between war and peace and the idea of a “just war” saying, “perhaps the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of the military of a nation in the midst of two wars.
Baffled may not be the word to describe this prize, a more intense definition is needed, say confused, delirious, maybe we were disoriented. Maybe these are the words to describe the Nobel committee. Because it seems to us that they were disoriented, delirious and confused. Well how did it work out for the man of PEACE?
Not too well; 400,000 Syrians dead whose kin can thank Obama’s Red line. Iran waging havoc throughout the Middle East and on the verge of a nuclear capability, signed on by Obama and Kerry. Hezbollah backing up Assad in Syria and running roughshod in Lebanon. The aftermath of Obama’s peace overtures have not turned out as expected. The exclamation point here is last weeks message sent via airmail to Syria. Russia has got the message too, but all is not said and done. We sincerely hope the Nobel committee recognizes their mistake and claws back Obama’s prize and then hands it over to Donald Trump.
