Obama wins 2009 Nobel Prize


The BBC and all kinds of other news programmes available online spread already the news about this year’s Nobel Prize for Peace winner. I bet those who visit Twitter on regular basis have known it even before.

Well, it’s Mr President Barack Obama, the assumably mightiest man of the world (if it’s not Iran’s PresidentAchmadinejad nowadays) and the reason why he won it out of about 205 nominees is because he apparently introduced a new form of presidency, motivated people all around the world to cooperate and strengthened the world population’s hopes and belief in democracy.

Well, I agree.But then it comes to my mind – why again such a prominent person and why again him? I wonder what the other nominees had done thatit had been less than what Obama did with his election camaign and his speeches and other efforts. As BBC points out, a Chinese dissident and another activist were among the nominees. Or similiar. And I bet there were much more. So really, I wonder, why him – hasn’t this respectable guy won already almost all honors possible?…

I wish the Nobel Peace Prize could be given many times and not only once a year. As for my opinion, I remember the course of the year and the Iran stories, the youth protesters, hunt, killed, hurt, and still protesting again and again against the regime, fighting for a state and for the right to make a revolution. If any, so all the nameless (to us!) protesters, organisators and orators, not the politicians certainly, have deserved a common Prize. Especially this year. Or at least one of them representingthe Green Revolution, how it was called once. 

As far as I know, the revolution we all hoped for didn’t take place actually. The forces were to mighty and people become tired as well. This doesn’t mean it wasn’t meaningful. So… if I was there in the Nobel Prize committee… you know my choice. And in year 1993 or 1999 or 2000 they should have given the Prize to Ofra Haza. 1993, together with Y.Rabin, S.Peres and Y.Arafat who she all sang for in Oslo. This would be just……..

Sweet dreams. Anyways, congratulations to Obama, for sure he deserves honour but certainly not him alone.

By the way….

what would  be YOUR CHOICE?

    This makes me sick! He is no more a “nobel peace winner” than a rabid animal in the woods! He is no messiah and he is no president for or of America!!
    I will never again beleive in this “nobel” effort!!

    Unbelievable! Not even in the presidency for a year, hasn’t accomplished anything accept endangering our country and shredding the Constitution of the United States of America! His own press sec. Gibbs had the reaction of “wow”, when told by a reporter that Obie won the peace prize…what does that tell you when Obama knew back in February that he was getting it? His little trip to Denmark…he knew that Chicago would not get the Olympics so why would he even put himself in a situation of that much humiliation to this country?

    The Nobel Peace Prize is nothing but a JOKE now. It has no credibility!

      Well I suggest the “wow” reaction was rather because he had no idea that he really got it in the end. in the end it’s far more a pressure on him than a benefit, i think…

    If this isn’t the BIGGEST SLAP IN THE FACE to every previous winner who actually contributed something to benefit the world.

    What has he done besides Rape & Pillage every decent value that America has left.

    The world has gone completely MAD!!

      Well I suggest there were different times in history when the peace prize was “mis”-awarded, let’s take Arafat for example, if this wasn’t a failure then… well. Actually why do you think he raped any decent American value? as for other world citizens’ opinion except for Americans the US had lost many of its values during Bush’s period…. I d rather say Obama didn’t accomplish something so far rather than call it “rape”… But I agree it was a wrong decision.
