I posted this under the "other world news" section because it concerns the world not just the USA or the nobel committee.

From the artice:

The Nobel Peace Prize that President Obama received 40 months ago has emerged as the most appalling Orwellian award of this century. No, war is not peace. George Carlin used to riff about oxymorons like “jumbo shrimp,” “genuine imitation,” “political science” and “military intelligence.” But humor is of the gallows sort when we consider the absurdity and tragedy of the world’s most important peace prize honoring the world’s top war maker.

This week, a challenge has begun with the launch of a petition urging the Norwegian Nobel Committee to revoke Obama’s Peace Prize. By midnight of the first day, nearly 10,000 people had signed. The online petition simply tells the Nobel committee: “I urge you to rescind the Nobel Peace Prize that was awarded to Barack Obama.”

Click the link in the txt above to sign the petition.  Beyond what I've pasted here are comments of some of the many signees.

Along with the one that was awarded to the EEC I might add.

They gave one to Yasser Arafat, for God's sake, and Al Gore of all people.  The Peace Prize has been an leftist absurdity for decades and I expect it will get worse as time goes on.

You asked for Obamamerica, now you are going to get it.  Stand by for suck or as Pelosi says, "Embrace the suck".

Also "U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced on September 21, 2012 that the 33,000 additional U.S. troops that President Barack Obama had sent to Afghanistan in 2010 to counter the Taliban attacks have left the country.[85][86][87][88] A phased withdrawal plan was developed where 10,000 troops would leave Afghanistan by July 2011 and the remaining 23,000 would leave Afghanistan by the end of September 2012. The removal of the 23,000 U.S. troops began in July 2012.[4] In a statement announcing an end to the surge Panetta stated:


"As we reflect on this moment, it is an opportunity to recognize that the surge accomplished its objectives of reversing Taliban momentum on the battlefield, and dramatically increased the size and capability of the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF). This growth has allowed us and our ISAF Coalition partners to begin the process of transition to Afghan security lead, which will soon extend across every province and more than 75 percent of the Afghan population. At the same time, we have struck enormous blows against al Qaeda’s leadership, consistent with our core goal of disrupting, dismantling and defeating al Qaeda and denying it a safe-haven."[4]


Once the United States and its allies agreed on the timing for the shift in the Afghanistan mission — under which American troops would step away from the lead combat role to a supporting mission focused primarily on counterterrorism and training Afghan security forces (according to the 2012 NATO Chicago Summit this shift is planned for the middle of 2013 (see section above)) — the Obama administration must decide exactly when the remaining 68,000 troops will come home according to the New York Times.[89] In September 2012 the United States withdrew then the last of the 33,000 “surge” forces from Afghanistan that President Obama ordered in West Point 2009 to try to bring the Afghanistan war under control. With the reduction over the next two years of the remaining 68,000 American troops, the top American and NATO commander in Afghanistan would lead a force that is to operate from fewer bases and will train Afghan forces to take the lead in combat.[5]"

This I agree with. He has done nothing worthy of an award.

Can a Nobel Peace Prize, once awarded by committee, be rescinded? Has it eveer been done? I don't know.

But, I too found it rather shocking that he was awarded, even though I actually have little against him.

Not being a big follower of politics, I don't even know under what specific grounds he was awarded.

It would have to be something like the Hague to revoke something like that

Here is a list of all the Nobel Peace Prize winners since it started.  Seems like they are getting less picky all the time to whom they give it to.

All Nobel Peace Prizes

Let's be candid here.

The nascent President Obama was given his Nobel Peace Prize for being not President Bush (younger).

The award was rather more a finger in Bush's eye than a pat on Obama's back.

The Nobel Committee can probably do anything it wishes, including rescind.
But to do so would undermine its own authority; so would be unlikely to, without overpowering reason; mass-child-molestation for example.

I see that thug Mandela's on the list. What did he get his award for - getting rid of old car tyres?
