Obama wins 2009 Nobel “Peace” Prize

Is This Someone’s Idea of a Dirty Joke?

Not quite. The Norwegian committee members in charge have a habit of awarding the “peace” prize to the guy who advocates using more dynamites!

Are you *^$%#@ serious?

The Nobel prize was created by the inventor of dynamite Alfred Nobel, a Swedish industrialist, who went on to make a dynamite out of  his invention.

The Nobel Committee said they awarded him the prize for  “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples.”

How exactly did he do that?

He sent 21,000 more troops to Afghanistan to kill more civilians.

Dose it mean that he now has the Nobel license to use even more dynamites?

That’s the irony isn’t it. But at least they are consistent in the way they choose their prize-winners. Among  their previous jackpot winners were:

  • Martti Ahtisaari
  • Shimon Peres
  • Yitzhak Rabin
  • The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso
  • The United Nations Peace-keeping Forces
  • Elie Wiesel
  • Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
  • Menachem Begin
  • Henry A. Kissinger
  • The International Committee of the Red Cross (twice)

“Very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said. [Ask anyone in Detroit, they’ll yah!]

“[Obama has] created a new climate in international politics, ” the statement from the Nobel Committee said. “Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play.”

Does this mean that Olympics Committee are at least more honorable people than the Norwegian Nobel Committee?

At least one person approved. Obama’s uncle Said Obama reportedly told Reuters by telephone from the president’s ancestral village of Kogelo in western Kenya: “It is humbling for us as a family and we share in Barack’s honor… we congratulate him.”

The ceremony for the peace award will take place on 10 December in Oslo, Norway’s capital. Meanwhile you can email your thoughts (express yourself freely) to the committee at postmaster@nobel.no

The Nobel Dynamite Prize Committee Members [Name them to Shame them]

  • Thorbjørn Jagland:  Chair of the Nobel Committee
  • Kaci Kullmann Five:  Deputy chair of the Nobel Committee
  • Sissel Marie Rønbeck: Former Politician
  • Inger-Marie Ytterhorn: Senior political adviser to the Progress Party’s parliamentary group.
  • Ågot Valle: Member of the Storting (Parliament of Norway)

The dreaded Olympics comes every four years; the agony of Nobel Pe*ce Prize is annual!

Obama’s “Killing Fields”

Posted by terres on September 25, 2009

5 More US Soldiers Killed in Afghanistan—Obama’s “Killing Fields”

Five more U.S. troops were killed in three separate attacks  in Afghanistan, Reuters quoted the military as saying on Friday.

Two were killed and a third died of wounds sustained from a roadside bomb attack, the military said in a statement. The fourth and fifth died of wounds sustained during insurgent attacks. All three attacks took place on Thursday.

Number of International occupation forces killed in Afghanistan : 1416

Currently, more than 100,000 Western troops occupy Afghanistan, about 70 percent of them American.

Their commander, U.S. Army General Stanley McChrystal, is expected to ask for thousands more in a request he will deliver to Washington this week. He has said that without additional forces, his mission is likely to fail.

According to General Stanley McChrystal more than 500,000 troops would be needed over five years to win the war.

This year has been the bloodiest year for the US forces in Afghanistan. Of the 849 US forces killed in Afghanistan in the last 8 years, 219 were killed this year, and the death toll is mounting.

How many more US and Coalition forces must die before the Trojan-War President calls it the day?

The “Afghan War” is unwinnable militarily. A sane congress would press for a non-military US policy in Afghanistan before the war escalates even further.

Longshore Caucus calls for Iraq war protest at ports on May 1

Nearly one hundred Longshore Caucus delegates voted on February 8 to support a resolution calling for an eight-hour “stop-work” meeting during the day-shift on Thursday, May 1 at ports in CA, OR and WA to protest the war by calling for the immediate, safe return of U.S. troops from Iraq.

 

“The Caucus has spoken on this important issue and I’ve notified the employers about our plans for ‘stop work’ meetings on May 1,” said ILWU International President Bob McEllrath.

 

Caucus delegates, including several military veterans, spoke passionately about the importance of supporting the troops by bringing them home safely and ending the War in Iraq. Concerns were also raised about the growing cost of the war that has threatened funding for domestic needs, including education and healthcare. Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard economist Linda J. Bilmes recently estimated that the true cost of the War in Iraq to American taxpayers will exceed 3 trillion dollars–a figure they describe as “conservative.”

The union’s International Executive Board recently endorsed Barack Obama, citing his opposition to the War in Iraq as one of the key factors in the union’s decision-making process.

Caucus delegates are democratically elected representatives from every longshore local who set policy for the Longshore Division.

ILWU International President Robert McEllrath has written letters to President John Sweeney of the AFL-CIO and President Andy Stern of the Change-to-Win Coalition, and to the presidents of the International Transport Workers Federation and the International Dockworkers Council to inform them of the ILWU’s plans for May 1.
