World Peace advocated by Gandhi & Martin Lother King by the act of Non-Violence but Obama announced world piece in a modified system of Non-Violence – a subject of discussion:
Sorry but I'm a bit cynical about Obama and his Nobel Peace Prize, given that he's sending 30,000 extra troops into Afghanistan!
Is Obama the first man to accept the peace prize with blood on his hands??
Not sure if Kissinger qualifies, the secretary of state can't declare ware, or order troop deployment, or set ROE's...but there are:
1978 - Anwar al-Sadat, Menachem Begin
1994 - Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin
By your loose definition I would also include Jimmy Carter.
Nope. I think Henry Kissinger qualifies.
Here's a link to all the recipients
A man is committed to world piece and his sending of 30,000 American troops to Afghanistan is subjected to withdrawal of Forces by a fixed time period unlike Vietnam War. In addition to that the selection of Oslo can not be undermined as because the decision of Nobel award has never been miss-fired till its inception.
unfortunately the timing was bad...right after he agreed to send more troops, it was time to accept the prize. i thought he didn't want war and would end them as soon as possible but
Well I wont argue with that but they didn't get awarded the peace prize.
Which wasn't his choice. Henry Kissinger (US Secretary of State) got one during the Vietnam War

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?

Will they take away Obama's Nobel Peace Prize?Obama is threatening to attack Syria. Without approval of the UN. Without even the approval of Congress, until he found out he was the only who was going to attack Syria because the Brits pulled out. Obama certainly isn't a peacemaker, and...

Led by an overwhelming majority of American citizens, with predominantly New Yorkers on the front lines, picketers in front of the White House succeeded in making Mr. Obama vow to return his erroneously-gotten Prize. He said now he understands that it ain't okay to cause chaos WITHIN America...
