    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:

      You don't see the irony?  King said non violence and never raised a hand and was killed.  Obama... says peace but violence is necessary.  In my opinion, he has the same mind set as dictators of violent countries.

    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??

        Nope. I think Henry Kissinger qualifies.

          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.

          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

      meh.

        Which wasn't his choice.  Henry Kissinger (US Secretary of State) got one during the Vietnam War smile
