NOBEL PEACE PRIZE TO OBAMA HAS PEOPLE ASKING WHY!
President Obama has only been in office a few months and has done nothing so far to achieve peace in any conflict–not in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, or even at home. In fact he’s heading for more war in Iran and Afghanistan. His increased intervention in Pakistan is leading to greater instability.
So, why the prize? Honest observers have always known the prize was rigged, as typified by awards to globalist warmongers like Henry Kissinger and terrorists like Yasser Arafat. It is also politically skewed to the Left.
As the Washington Post noted, “At least the Nobel committee came clean this time. In awarding the peace prize to President Obama its chairman acknowledged that it did so because it agrees with and wants to promote his politics. ‘We are hoping this may contribute a little bit for what he is trying to do,’ Thorbjorn Jagland, the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee said.”
Hopefully, the rest of the world will now rightly discount this award for what it is–blatant political manipulation.
