Nobel Criteria Favors Despots: Obama Shoe-In

Obama Wins Peace Prize To Mixed Reviews

There are no words, truly, for the rampant lunacy surrounding this man.

OSLO (Reuters) – President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for giving the world “hope for a better future” and striving for nuclear disarmament, in a surprise award that drew both warm praise and sharp criticism.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee praised Obama for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” But critics — especially in parts of the Arab and Muslim world — called its decision premature.

I have to ask, what more do these towel heads want? They’ve got a U.S. president who has turned the war in Afghanistan into a game of military Duck Hunt, kissed Ahmadinejad’s ring, and upgraded the status of the detainees in Gitmo to that of foreign diplomats. Are militant Muslims never happy?

Obama’s press secretary woke him with the news before dawn and the president felt “humbled” by the award, a senior administration official said.

When told in an email from Reuters that many people around the world were stunned by the announcement, Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, responded: “As are we.”

Humbled my arse. It’s pretty safe to say he lept out of bed mumbling, “It’s about damn time.”

And Obama surprised about this? That’s like saying he was surprised to find out ACORN needed another in service on how to vet pimps and prostitutes.

“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,” the committee said in a citation.

This translates: We are positively giddy over Obama’s success. We’ve been waiting decades to award the Prize to the man who would finally bring down America.We know it seems premature, but he had us at “nationalized healthcare”.

The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip and opposes a peace treaty with Israel, said the award was premature at best.

“Obama has a long way to go still and lots of work to do before he can deserve a reward,” said Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri. “Obama only made promises and did not contribute any substance to world peace. And he has not done anything to ensure justice for the sake of Arab and Muslim causes.”

What Zuhri means here is that Obama better step up his plans to help the Muslim world wipe Israel off the map. Then, and only then, will Obama be worthy of the Nobel in Allah’s eyes.

The the Nobel committee defended its decision.

Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjoern Jagland rejected suggestions from journalists that Obama was getting the prize too early, saying it recognized what he had already done over the past year.

“We hope this can contribute a little bit to enhance what he is trying to do,” he told a news conference.

And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the criteria for the Nobel Peace Prize: One must unabashedly pander to the despots of the world, apologize for America’s foibles, and hand American sovereignty over to the UN on a silver platter. I’d say Obama nailed this one…and that the Norwegian Nobel Committee is a bunch of blathering idiots.

Breaking no new historic ground,

Obama, laid out his vision for eliminating nuclear arms in a speech in Prague in April. But he was not the first American president to set that goal, and acknowledged it might not be reached in his lifetime.

Ya think?

By the way, history speaks against the attempt of eliminating arms. In 1928 the American Secretary of State, Frank B. Kellogg, promoted a Peace Pact which he invited all members of the League of Nations to sign. The Peace Pact was aimed at outlawing war and keeping Germany as impotent as possible: “The unqualified renunciation of all war as an instrument of national policy.” Kellogg wanted to avoid another World War. Nothing wrong with that.

However, not everyone in the League wanted to sign off on it (FYI, the French thought it was a dandy idea.) Eliminating war sounds good, but human nature dictates its impossibility. As every leader in the world knows…that is, except Obama…you can trust your neighboring dictator about as far as you can throw his fat aunt. Hence the need for arms.

And while the world thought Germany was being restrained under the League’s thumb, and while Kellogg promoted his Peace Pact, the Germans were in Russia and Sweden building up their army, manufacturing tanks and airplanes, and perfecting their chemical warfare skills. Oh, and the rest of Europe was doing pretty much the same thing.

See the pattern? Obama, absurdly enough, thinks Iran takes him seriously about the whole nuke thing. And while he disciples Ahmadinejad on the finer points of peace, Iran, along with the rest of the malcontents around the world, are mixing up plutonium Coyote Ugly style.

And, oddly (though not surprisingly) enough, to the Nobel committee, this is a good thing. And Muslims are critical of their choice of Obama because…?

So, to recap: The purpose behind handing the fascist rookie, Obama, the Nobel is to encourage him to keep up the good work. They want to secure his continued cooperation in tearing down America along with any nation remotely as free. They know he hasn’t really done jack yet, but they know an egoist when they see one. Throw a few trinkets his way and he’ll be putty in their hands…and America will be trampled under their feet.

What does this mean for our country? Well, now every thug around the world who has wanted to see the U.S. brought to its knees has just secured our president as their biggest ally. It also means our troops are screwed, and that they’ll probably be sporting UN uniforms faster than you can say, “Allah wills it!”.

The only difference between 1928 and today is that Germany at least feared America enough to hide what they were doing. Ahmadinejad, fearing America like Oprah fears a Twinkie, not only publicly boasts about the nuclear program that Obama so limp-wristedly told him to scrap, but markets it as well: “Iran is ready to transfer nuclear know-how to the Islamic countries due to their need.”

And, it is precisely because the despots of the world have decided to nuke-up that the Nobel committee would have done well not to have awarded a budding despot the Prize for making us all unsafe as hell…and that includes the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
