The freshman President of USA, Barack Obama, won the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” as The Norwegian Nobel Committe has motivated for the year of 2009.
Yes, I agree, that Pres. Barack Obama has a world vision toward nuclear disarmament through diplomacy and dialogue, but isn´t it one of a president´s prime tasks and responsibilities in most democratical peaceful countries? Pres. Barack Obama just put an emphasis on it.
As for the prize money, Pres. Barack Obama intended them for charity. Indeed, a noble action for a noble cause.
Well, a decision is a decision. It is irrevocable. I supposed it should be impolite if Pres. Barack Obama declined.
BUT, if I were in Pres. Barack Obama´s position I should also surprise the Norwegian Noble Committe as well as the whole world and give the Nobel Peace Prize to the Chinese activist and dissedent Hu Jia – not just for his fight for basic human rights but as encouragement for the whole China´s democracy process.
A more noble action for humanity.
Pres. Barack Obama is also sometimes unpredictable, he might read my mind or my blog, and find my idea a better one.🙂
