Re: Nobel Prize for What Now?

The original intent of The Nobel Peace prize 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.”

I was, thus, absolutely stunned to see Preston report that Barack Obama has won this prestigious award. This is a man who is massively expanding the most powerful military in world history, considering the “option” of an aggressive war on Iran, and maiming and killing Afghani and Pakistani toddlers with his “strategic airstrikes.” Yes, other very evil men have won this politicized award in the past, but it’s absolutely shocking they have the gall to give it to a sitting president actively engaged in this sort of violence.

As events like this show, the world has fallen deep into an Orwellian abyss… And there will be no escape from it if we’re afraid to speak out unequivocally against this sort of evil and propaganda.
