Nobel Committee Asked to Strip Obama's Peace Prize

As "Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined" was posted all over the internet at various social networking sites Monday, the President of Bolivia along with a Russian political leader launched a campaign to get this dubious honor stripped from Barack Obama in the wake of his attack on Libya.

As Digital Journal reported:

Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009.

Zhirinovsky said the attacks were "another outrageous act of aggression by NATO forces and, in particular, the United States," and that the attacks demonstrated a "colonial policy" with "one goal: to establish control over Libyan oil and the Libyan regime." He said the prize was now hypocritical as a result.

Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed the call: "How is it possible that a Nobel Peace Prize winner leads a gang to attack and invade? This is not a defence of human rights or self-determination."

It will be very interesting to see if this campaign has legs and if America's Obama-loving press will report it.

Stay tuned.
