For not starting any new wars, despite being US president for several months.

Sounds like Affirmative Action has control of the Nobel Prize selection.

I think people misunderstand the criteria. The Nobel Peace Prize isn't actually about doing anything:

Quote:
"to 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."


It's just a glorified political statement made on behalf of an NGO for trying to change things. If conservatives knew that they wouldn't have to go balling their eyes out over all the TV networks about how Obama only got it coz he's black etc.

*facepalm*

If that's the criteria then Obama definitely won it ;P

Seriously though, what has he accomplished to derserve it? Even he himself said he doesn't deserve it. Combine this with the fact that nominations closed a week into the start of his presidency (I'm assuming they judge it on work done up to time of submission), his only major accomplishment then really is becoming president. And he's black.

Or maybe its anticipation of how peaceful the world will be with the first (secret) muslim president

Who says he has to deserve it? If the Nobel prize can be used to make a political statement that "you should listen to this guy" rather than simply giving a prize for accomplishments... well, which would you prefer, someone encouraging people to come help you push a boulder up a hill, or someone standing at the top to give you a pretty ribbon when you get there?

So you're saying Obama needs more attention drawn to him? That's one of the unfortunate effects of this, rather then directing attention to some little known cause, they give it to the most well known guy in the world.

I think what FraudPerfect meant by "you should listen to this guy" is to make him more authoritative. I could be wrong though! ^_^

I meant that by giving it to him, they make it more likely that he will be deserving of it, because he will work that much harder for peace and other people will pay attention to him on the topic of peace, because, after all, he has a Nobel prize for it.
Of course, the Nobel committee claims he was already deserving of it. Then again, would they admit to that kind of maneuvering?

Or it's a giant Muslim Bolshevik-Fascist extremist conspiracy and Obama's now even infiltrated the innocent Nobel Peace prize selection as a precursor to him taking over the United States and declaring himself Supreme Black Jesus of these United States of the Whole Wide Universe.

Just my two cents!!

Actually, here's the story as I hear it.

Part of the original criteria of the Peace Prize is to "Reduce standing armies." Today, that is commonly interpreted as "Reduce nuclear arsenals" or, "Reduce the number of nukes that countries are pointing at eachother."

Now, a while ago, there was some international trouble with Natural Gas being stolen out of Russia's pipelines. It was pretty heated, and for a while, Russia had some nukes pointed at Oslo.

Obama's diplomatic work was involved in getting Russia to stop pointing nukes at people, and that's what this is about.

...Now, the cynics among us can point out that Oslo is also the place where the Norwegian Parliament sits, and they're people who select the Nobel Peace Prize committee. Still, Obama did do something to deserve the prize - it's only a question of if maybe there isn't someone who's done more.
