OBAMA AND NOBEL PRIZE
I am of the opinion that Obama is already basking in the glory of success. This award should be used to bring in limelight the deserving souls who need genuine attention for their tremendous contribution. It’s a meaningless and absurd gesture to award this to someone who is at the helm of global politics!
Zimbabwe’s Morgan Tsvangirai, Chinese dissident Hu Jia, Colombian senator Piedad Cordoba who has campaigned for a peaceful solution to the almost 50-year-old conflict in her country, and Afghan doctor and women’s rights activist Sima Samar, Vietnamese Buddhist monk and democracy advocate Thich Quang Do, Chechen human rights lawyer Lidiya Yusupova, and Russian activist Svetlana Gannushkina and the Cluster Munitions Coalition or the humanitarian organization Handicap International could have been honured.
Only because just think of the consequences had Obama been not awarded Nobel.According to many he would have then run short of enthusiasm to accomplish his dreams !!This award,by many,is being treated as ”catalyst” but my question is that why Obama needs an award to pursue his goal ?
He is the head of a ”superpower” and enjoys great resources to pursue his dreams.He should ,being in league with his conscience, discharge all his duties responsibly and that includes peaceful solutions in contentious issues plaguing the middle east.He should do all this naturally with or without award.Why should he be awarded for something that falls genuinely within his realm?
No need to tell that whether it’s middle east or any other part of world U.S. has definite role to play.Only because most of the problems have been directly or indirectly created by United states.Today he talks about limiting the presence of nuclear weapons.One need to ask Obama which country has inspired the minnows to flirt with nuclear weapons?
I think it’s not Mr Obama but some another soul that truly deserved Nobel.Because that person would have gone out of way to set new parameters and that too in absence of resources. Sadly,that’s not at all the case with Obama.He is Mr influential !!
Are now Nobel prizes given to serve some political interests?
I am really surprised that he has been chosen!! If he could be awarded Noble for inconsequential and insignificant international diplomacy, why was Gandhi not awarded Noble for his tremendous contributions that added new dimensions in the word humanity?
Like others I am also not hesitant in asking ”He won! For what?”
One gentleman has stated that he has won for his ”unshakable commitment to diplomacy, mutual respect and dialogue as the best means of resolving conflicts.”
Like to tell that gentleman that this are empty words and nothing else...Big words devoid of meaning in our times !!
I hope there are many names in the list who are unknown figure for many of us.Shouldn’t have they been given chance to bask in the glory of success?
