Bolivian President Asks Nobel Committee to Strip Obama of Peace Prize


obama-book1Bolivian President Evo Morales has called for President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize to be revoked following his decision to attack Libya.

‘Two years ago we heard that President Barack Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize, but is he defending peace in the world now, or isn’t he instead fomenting violence?’ Morales told reporters, days after Obama ordered the bombing of Libya military targets as part of an UN-approved effort to protect civilians.

‘How is it possible to give the Nobel Peace Prize to someone who has launched an invasion, a bombing? It’s a violation, an assault, an aggression,’ said Morales, one of Latin America’s most left-leaning leaders and a vocal critic of the United States.

‘Obama is the leader of group of thugs who led an assault and an invasion – and that has nothing to do with defending human rights,’ he declared.

Obama receive the prize in December 2009, less than a year after taking office.

In his acceptance speech in Oslo, Obama referred to himself as ‘the commander-in-chief of a nation in the midst of two wars’ and said armed conflict was at times necessary.

Obama gave his $US1.4 million ($A1.4 million) Nobel Peace Prize award money to 10 charities, including groups working on Haiti relief and supporting military families.

  1. Sky news is not a legitimate media company. They constantly print objective lies. That said, Gadafi slaughtered at least several thousand people by the time the Security Council passed the resolution. The tens of thousands of civilians that this SCR will ultimately save is mind blowing. Obama is the one who caused the expansion of the initially proposed resolution of the EU and the Arabs to include an ” all means necessary” provision allowing it to be effective by destroying the ground forces that would have been excluded, and as Gates said, would have left the resolution without the ability to stop the killing of innocents. Obama has once again proven that his methodical planning initially looks like dithering when the accuser is without the real time facts.

  2. I bet Morales would have them give Obama’s prize to Gaddafi himself. How is what Obama doing not pursuing peace? Gaddafi would be slaughtering his own people right now if not for UN resolution and coalition action. Morales is completely nuts.

  3. MR.President Evo Morales do you mean to tell me that had he not gone into Libya he would still deserve the Noble Peace?? The answer is a resounding NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
