I've heard all this talk, from the right wing, and from the so-called mainstream press too, about how Obama has done nothing to win the Nobel Prize. They are wrong.
Here is what this amazing man did: The greatest threat in the world to peace was the fact that the most powerful military apparatus in history had fallen into the hands of a pack of insatiable warmongers, people who delighted in their ability to cause carnage, and who hungered for any chance to bring more violence into the world.
Barack Obama took this power out of their hands, without firing a shot. This is one of the greatest blows for peace ever seen in the modern era, and as people around the world recognize, it is easily deserving of the Nobel peace prize.
