Obama was rewarded the Nobel Peace Prize! Was it to soon?
some people are saying he didn't deserve it because we still have wars going on in Iraq an Afghanistan and has launch a deadly counter-terror attact on pakistan and Somalia. on the other hand he has ease American conflicts with Muslim nations. Your comments and answers are appreciated
I don't believe it is too soon. While there is still war going on, he has shown that he truly believes in finding a way to get along with other countries. And yes, he may be forced to take more action against other countries, but it will not be because he did not first attempt to make peace. President Obama deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
I'm sorry, but I cannot put Obama in the same league as Ghandi, MLK, etc. What exactly has he done to earn such a presigious award, especially with others who were nominated, who have a MUCH longer history of fighting for human rights and social justice? Def. too soon, and not deserving.
I really don't think you can say it was too soon in light of the fact that there was no factual basis to award him the Nobel Prize in the first place. The credibility assigned to the Nobel Prize was deeply minimized and it continues to fall as Obama's Administration develops emergencies on all fronts. I would suggest that he be in line for receiving another Nobel Prize for bring "socialism" to the forefront in America.
I'll answer your question with a question. How can it be too soon when it shouldn't have happened at all?
When I was a kid, winning a Nobel Peace Prize was a big deal. Now they've become nothing more than a left-wing, liberal carnival prize. Other than the money that comes with them, they have no substance anymore.

The greatest threat to mankind is Nuclear war and the lack of protection for our natural environment.I'm happier to see Al Core get a Nobel peace prize, than to watch Obama get one for raising the war budget to the highest level ever. What do you think?
