OSLO — President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in a stunning decision designed to build momentum behind his initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism.

Obama said he was surprised and deeply humbled by the honor, and planned to travel to Oslo to accept the prize.

"I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize," he said. "I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations to confront the challenges of the 21st century."

Many observers were shocked by the unexpected choice so early in the Obama presidency, which began less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline and has yet to yield concrete achievements in peacemaking.

 

 

 

 

just a proof of to what kind of people they give this prize!

Venezuela´s ombudswoman: Nobel Prize to Obama is a mockery of human rights

 

 


"The Nobel Peace Prize for Barack Obama, the president of the United States, is a mockery of human rights," said on Friday Gabriela Ramírez, the Venezuelan Ombudswoman.

"It is confusing and difficult to understand the fact that (Barack) Obama, who is the leader of a government that has legitimized torture to obtain information and presides over a country that has no human rights institutions, has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize (...) This award is a mockery of human rights," she said.

Ramírez told TV show Despertó Venezuela (Venezuela awoke), broadcast by state-run TV network Venezolana de Televisión, that the US president should apologize to the countries where it has perpetrated genocides, before being awarded a Nobel Prize, state-owned news agency ABN reported.

Ramírez recalled that Obama´s administration has reactivated the Fourth Fleet in the Caribbean Sea and is deploying seven military bases in Colombia, near the border with Venezuela, that affect the sovereignty and peace in South America.

The ombudswoman said: "The Nobel Peace Prize is symbolically awarded to someone who works for peace. The top representative of a military power can not be awarded this Prize."

Early on Friday, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said Obama was awarded the Peace Prize for his extraordinary efforts to promote nuclear disarmament and his new willingness to attack growing environmental problems.

 

 

 

 

I couldn`t agree more!

I don´t think Obama should have gotten this price, but people seem to misunderstand why he got it. He didn´t get the price for his acts as president. The nominations were given out a long time ago, when he was just president. So, he got this award for becoming president and inspiring people by becoming president.

I think ofcourse his election has had an impact around the world. People got the hope that the fiasco that was Bush could finally be turned around. But I don´t think Obama should get a price for something he didn´t do. Becoming president is not something he did, it´s something the American people did. They chose him. You can´t give somebody a price for being elected.

It is kind of mockery that he got this Prize for not being Bush. Analogically, I should get it too as I´m not Hitler

It is a VERY strange decision to award Obama the peace prize - and extremely embarassing for him!  Apparently he had no idea until the day of the awards.  For me, it smacks of "positive discrimination" and I really wonder if this has been an award for becoming the first BLACK president.

 

It makes a mockery of the awards...

Robert  Fisk: Obama, man of peace? No, just a Nobel prize of a mistake

 

"The US president received an award in the faint hope that he will succeed in the future. That´s how desperate the Middle East situation has become"

Wow.... this is interesting.... Apparently my President is being held responsible for the acts of George W. Bush.

 

FYI- Blacks are not the only ones who have large families you know.

 

FYI-President Obama´s mother is white so he is not completely black so you can save your racists stereotypes for a full blooded black person okay.

Kurds are a species that is capable of converting into a Turk when they kill their daughters/wifes or smuggle stuff. So no, they are Turks!

 I guess it is what suits at the time!  Recently three "Kurds" (father and two brothers) in London were convicted of murdering the daughter (age 15) in an honour killing, for falling in love with the wrong man.  Her body has never been found. They also tried to kill the boy.

 Rival gangsters are fighting a bloody turf war over control of one of Britain´s most lucrative drugs trade.

<[script] src="/sky-news/app/skynewsflash/js/swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"> <[script] type="text/javascript"> <[script] type="text/javascript">

Three men have died and others have survived a wave of attacks that Scotland Yard is struggling to combat.

At stake is the multi-million-pound heroin racket run by Turkish gangs in North London.

Two years ago police convicted members of the infamous Baybasin gang, whose members got long jail sentences.

But that success created a power vacuum which other gangs - principally the Tottenham Boys and the Hackney Bombers - are trying to fill at any cost.

"Even though heroin prices have dropped there is a lot of money to be made," one reformed heroin trafficker told me.

"Life has never been so cheap and gangs are willing to kill to get control.

"One of the issues at the moment is that gangs are stealing each other´s customers."

The murder of shopkeeper Ahmet Paytak, 50, was a chilling, professional hit by two killers who roared up to his store in Holloway on a motorcycle in March.

 

Undercover with a former drug trafficker

<[script] src="/sky-news/app/js/swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"> <[script] id="__ie_ondomload" src="//:"> <[script] type="text/javascript">

 

The pillion passenger leaped off the bike, ran into the shop and shot dead Mr Paytak and injured his son Huseyin, 21.

The attackers were in and out in 10 seconds.

Police believe Mr Paytak was shot in a case of mistaken identity, but his murder appears to have fuelled a string of shootings across North London.

Earlier this month businessman Otkay Erbasli, 23, was shot as his Range Rover pulled up at traffic lights in Tottenham.

Three days later, shop worker Cem Duzgun, 21, was gunned down as he left a social club near Clapton railway station.

Police have sent more officers into the area, including firearms teams, gang specialists and search squads.

A series of raids has recovered four weapons and some cannabis, but little else.

Commander Stephen Kavanagh said: "There was some sort of dispute between two crime groups in January and that seems to have sparked a level of violence we haven´t seen before.

"We are doing what we can, but we won´t stop this alone. We need witnesses and others with information within the Turkish and Kurdish communities to come and speak to us. I´m sure they will eventually."
