    Nobel Committee asked to strip Obama of Peace Prize

    The Bolivian President and a Russian political leader have launched a campaign to revoke Obama's honour after the US attacked Libya.
    Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009.

    Zhirinovsky said the attacks were "another outrageous act of aggression by NATO forces and, in particular, the United States," and that the attacks demonstrated a "colonial policy" with "one goal: to establish control over Libyan oil and the Libyan regime." He said the prize was now hypocritical as a result.
    Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed the call: "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."
    Morales won the Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights in 2006.

    He is amongst a number of left-leaning Latin American leaders who have denounced the attacks against Libya. Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Rafael Correa of Ecuador, Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua and Cristina Ferdinez of Argentina have all criticised western media coverage of the Libyan crisis.

    Morales and Chavez repeated calls for peace talks with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples." The Committee praised the "change in the international climate" affected by Obama's presidency.

    In his Nobel Lecture, he discussed the "hard truth" of the inevitability of war, saying: "There will be times when nations — acting individually or in concert — will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified."

    A message has been widely retweeted on Twitter today: "Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined."

    I heard Obama pawned the medal off already to feed his growing addiction to cocaine.

    So when there is a dictator who's running around murdering his own people because they dare to speak out against him, clearly the only thing for a Nobel Peach prize winner is to admonish that dictator with harsh words.

    makes sense to me

    So you supported the invasion of Iraq then?
  6. Maverick74


    Should we have taken out Saddam?
  7. We need to bomb all muslim terrorists.

    We have bombed:
    Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya

    Here is the rest of the list we need to work through:
    Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Yemen

    There are probably some others that I forgot, but the above list should be bombed hard to show that we are not afraid of the terrorists.

    Hey how about posting the Lat/Long of your domicile for programing into a JDAM.
  9. You sound like a muslim fanatic.

    Once we have flattened Libya and killed the Gaddafi dog, we will attack the evil Iranians. After finishing off Iran, we will bomb every Israel-hater in Syria and Pakistan. Those who hate Israel and those who don't give us oil contracts are legitimate targets.

    God bless Israel and USA.
