World Leaders’ reactions
Well this explains, in part, his lack of decisive action in regards to Afghanistan. And for sure had some effect, however minimal, on the IOC voting. But most of all it continues the trend of barry being rewarded/awarded for doing nothing other than talking.
What has barry done to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize?
barryfans – tell me one thing that qualifies him for it.
The committee sent out its solicitation for nominations last September — two months before barry was elected and nominations had to be postmarked by February 1 — only 12 days after Obama took office.
What does this refer to?
for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.
What extraordinary efforts has he made besides reading from TOTUS?
one part to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity among nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.
Most work – no
Best work – no (hasn’t actually done anything)
Abolition of standing armies – no
Reduction of standing armies – is trying at the detriment of Americans fighting in Afghanistan.
Holding peace congresses – none
Promotion of peace congresses – words
Kofi Annan was in charge of the UN for 4 years before he got the Nobel Peace Prize. barry has been in office less than 9 months.
What has he done in comparison to: Theodore Roosevelt, Jane Addams, Martin Luther King, Jr, Henry Kissinger and Al Gore?
And Mahatma Ghandi who never received a medal?
This has gone too far.
