Oslo’s definition of “peace” is skewed


Headlines today:  Obama wins Peace Prize!

First off, I can’t see what kind of “prize” Obama deserves at this point and more importantly, “peace” certainly doesn’t come to mind when thinking of Obama.

(Of course, with previous winners like Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, and Yasser Arafat, Obama is now in good Leftist, America-hating, Israel-despising company)

Webster’s definition of peace:

1 : a state of tranquillity or quiet: as a : freedom from civil disturbance b : a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom <a breach of the peace>”……..3 : harmony in personal relations
4 a : a state or period of mutual concord between governments b : a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity

So one would assume that for the President of the United States to win a “Peace Prize” he would have had to have a hand in suppressing civil disturbance at home and abroad and bringing security to communities throughout the world.  He also would have achieved solid pacts with other governments resulting in mutual peace. And if this is a “prize’, that President would have to be unprecedented and spectacular in such achievements.

Let’s research what Obama has done to deserve such a “prize”.

Let’s start with Iraq….that country is mostly quiet and, within the last 7 years,  MILLIONS have been freed from the oppression of dictatorial leader, Saddam Hussein.  They have a security system and military trained by US forces for protecting the citizens of Iraq from those who would do it harm.  And democracy is evident and on the rise in Iraq.

So  for Iraq, I definitely believe the President responsible for freeing millions from oppression, suppressing civil disturbances, and lending new life to the citizens of Iraq is worthy of a Prize for Peace…..

….so Ok…I can see why they awarded Oba..m….OH….wait a minute….Obama didn’t free those millions nor suppress civil disturbance and create a harmony in Iraq…..GEORGE W. BUSH did…..

Oh, and by the way, Barack Hussein Obama opposed the Iraq War at every turn…and voted against the surge that finally ended much of the civil disturbance in Iraq….

So, nope…he didn’t win for his work in Iraq….one could argue that Obama has been working actively AGAINST peace in Iraq what with opposing the achievements made there.

It must be Obama’s work in Iran…..you know how he has suppressed Iran’s abilites to create nuclear weapons and has defended Iranian citizens who desperately protest for freedom….

OH…wait….since Obama has been President, Iran has revealed a second nuclear facility, Obama is weak on sanctions for Iran, and Obama has yanked US money from the freedom-loving people/protesters of Iran.

An Iranian woman, among others,  is shot in cold blood by her own government and Obama calls it a “problem” ….and that’s about all he’s had to say about it…

Remember her?  Let’s ask her family about Obama’s peace prize, shall we?

Perhaps Obama has won the prize for his defense of Eastern Europe?

No, wait, he has removed the plans for missile shields in Poland and the Czech Republic….so they are more vulnerable to the Russians.

Perhaps Obama won the prize for bringing hope and change and civil discourse back to America?

Let’s see:
Union Thugs enter protests and fights break out

Pelosi compares Tea Party protesters to Nazis

Reid calls right wing protesters evil-mongers

In the last nine months, the time “peace-monger” Obama has been in office, unprecedented numbers turn out to protest Big Government, most who’ve never protested a day in their lives

So much for domestic civility and peace…..

OK…then Obama must be unprecedented in his defense of human life and living in peace?Wrong again…..

Obama must then have a great domestic agenda and results in 9 months?

So I, like many others, find Obama quite undeserving of this “prize”…..so why him and why now?

Personally, I believe that in this day and age, Nobel Peace Prize winners must show an antipathy or outright hatred of the United States, US Military, Israel, Freedom, or all of the above….

Obama fits that bill!  Obama talks down his country at every chance, is plummeting us further into economic turmoil, removing freedoms, and knocking the US off its superpower status pedestal.   Gateway Pundit said it well:

Obama’s bankrupted the US economy and destroyed the morale of our military.
No wonder he was awarded the Nobel.

Meanwhile… George W. Bush liberated 50 million people from two of the most violent regimes in history and brought democracy to the Middle East and what did he get?…
Spit on.

But ultimately, this reasoning may be fresh on the trail of the main reason Obama received the “prize” and received it only 9 months into his term.  From Rush Limbaugh’s comments this morning:

“This fully exposes the illusion that is Barack Obama,” Limbaugh told POLITICO in an e-mail. “And with this ‘award’ the elites of the world are urging Obama, THE MAN OF PEACE, to not do the surge in Afghanistan, not take action against Iran and its nuclear program and to basically continue his intentions to emasculate the United States.”

Limbaugh continued: “They love a weakened, neutered U.S and this is their way of promoting that concept. I think God has a great sense of humor, too.”

So, General McChrystal….there went your additional troops in Afghanistan!  Chances of the US bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities, small as they were, are nada now!
