Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

#1
What total bollocks. He was nominated just two weeks after taking office. The mincer hasn't done anything to date let alone two cockin weeks into his reign.

I believe he is a racist else why isn't he married to a white woman?

Give him a break, he was working towards peace and co-existence with harmony amongst many differing communities in the US before he became a statesman. He preached a new type of rhetoric and foreign policy before he became president. Such as the speech he gave in Berlin.
There are precedents such as De Klerk and Nelson Mandela who had not then stopped apartheid but were working towards it. It is sometimes awarded as a form of encouragement, as a sort of egging on.
Personaly I do think that the award to him was too early as there were many better candidates who have been striving to make our lives better for many years. They could put the prize money to further their cause. I would shortlist the following.
Jaqui Smith Former Home Secretary,
Ceri Blair For her services to the Human Rights Act, and her husband for implementing the Act.
Mr Mendalson and Mr Brown for saving the world.
Any other contenders? :wink:

Working towards something isn't the same as attaining it. I'm working towards the lottery, but that don't mean I've won it.

They have debased the whole system, it's now on a par with our New Years Honours - shit and totally meaningless.

Can we take it then that you are not a racist & that you are married to someone of a different race or religion or just single and waiting to see which way the mop flops. 8O :lol:

Do they realise they have awarded it to one of the major players actually involved in waging war and to a president of a country vowing to jump into more in the name of terrorism!!! They award him a PEACE award - beggars belief.

Are the Norwegian plugged into any main stream news networks.

I bet if Obama had threatened to use Nukes in Afghanistan he wouldn't have received the award.

There has to be someone out there more deserving.

Why not? They gave it out to these 3 chaps, and I don't see any improvement in the area they were working on, so if I had my druthers, I would pick Obama over these 3 any day... :D
