The 44th President of United States Barack Obama has just recieved the Nobel Prize for Peace for 2009, to quote the comittee’s words
“for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”
The intention of the Peace Prize as described in Nobel’s will, was to award “the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”. Now, has Obama said he will do all that ? Yes. But has he done all that ? NO. So, why did they give it to him ?
