Obama Nobel Peace Prize
In winning the Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama joins an elite group of U.S. presidents. He is the fourth to win the prize, the third to win it while in office and the first to receive it during his first year in office.
“The committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons,” the statement said.
“Obama has as president created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts.”
The committee added, “Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.”
Obama’s win unique among presidents
Note: Real interesting (but not surprising) how mainstream media jumped all over this story in a ‘negative’ fashion. It is in some peoples perceived best interest not to have peace, but war instead. These are the warmongers, whose savage tribalism and unquenchable thirst for blood, throughout recorded history, has destroyed empires and civilizations. These are the people who because of their past and present actions and policies condemn half the world’s population to live in abject poverty and misery, who continue to be a scourge to mankind, and who now present a very real and imminent threat to human civilizations continued existence.
“Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.”
