Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize came as a surprise to many, including U.S. President himself, the man did not offer any real accomplishment on earth can qualify for this award, and the old power is not more than nine months, which he still fumbles his way through a minefield high explosive, both domestically or internationally.
It was usual to grant this award the most important of the peers of people ended wars or they took a weapon, we do not believe that President Obama can be classified in this box, the man still leads the country locked in bleak and bloody wars for the time being, one in Afghanistan and the other in Iraq, and holds the rank of Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
It is true that President Obama stuck to his promises to withdraw troops from Iraq as a war where the 'choice', but Egypt to continue the second war in Afghanistan, as a 'war necessarily', is expected to pass in the next few days to a request by his commander, Major General Stanley McChrystal to increase the number of U.S. troops by about forty thousand troops.
Of engaging in two wars at once, and provides aircraft almost daily killing of innocent civilians in the Pakistan-Afghan border areas under the pretext of pursuing terrorists can not be described as a man of peace, let alone win the most important international prize in this regard.
Nobel Prize was awarded this time on the basis of 'intent' and not on the basis of 'achievements' and blow 'proactive' to drag the young American President to the peace camp, and keep him from launching new wars.
It is too early to say that this approach, if true, could bear fruit, President Reagan said in his speech yesterday and announced it welcomed the award, he will not tolerate nuclear powers that pose, in direct reference to Iran. Even if it was fair to say that at the same time supported the right of states to possess nuclear energy for peaceful purposes in the event of disclosure of their intentions are sincere.
The Middle East, and the Palestinian issue in particular, is the real testing ground for the peaceful intentions of President Barak, and his ability to carry the title of 'peacemaker', It is ironic that the committee overseeing the award of the Nobel Peace Prize based on his speech at the University of Cairo five months ago, Addressing the Muslim world, vowing to follow a conciliatory foreign policy, based on mutual respect and common interests, as justification for giving him the prize, but after six months of strenuous efforts, and send a peace envoy to the region more than once, and received the Palestinian and Israeli officials in Washington and New York, is still going on in the square one, did not achieve any progress.
President Obama's inability to freeze a few hundreds of settlements in the occupied Arab territories, and acquiesced in the end the terms of Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister, this is not the attributes of a man who could make peace, if he can not persuade his country's closest allies point of view, how will the solution conflict that lasted more than a hundred years, and is the most complex of its kind?
Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President in the manner we have seen, would not add much, and will not enhance his popularity declining in the country, especially if the increase in the volume of casualties among its troops, or innocent civilians in Afghanistan, or forced to foot the war against Iran if the the failure of the current negotiations, and recognition of the finiteness of any economic blockade.
It is certain that this award, the Nobel Prize, has lost much of its value and importance hasty decision awarded to a U.S. president is still at the beginning of his first term, and engineered the process of domestic and foreign policies
