"The peace prize should be awarded to Pfc. Bradley Manning instead."   Robert F., Santa Clara, CA

"This would be an extraordinarily bold move, but it certainly would send a message to the world that peace means peace, not war."   David G., Portland, OR

"I so wish President Obama had lived up to the award he was given. Instead he has chosen to continue and expand the horrors being perpetrated by our country. War is not ever the answer."   Carol G., Goshen, IN

"Droning people to death is not peace."   William S., New York, NY

"Not being George W. Bush was never sufficient ground for this award, and Mr. Obama's enthusiastic support for the extension of empire, fossil fuels, raw military power, and other violence against the earth   and its people is further evidence of its unwisdom."    Scott W., Durham, NC

"One must walk the walk of peace, not just talk the talk of peace in order to earn the Peace Prize."   Paul M., Los Angeles, CA

"Drone Bombs create more terrorists than they kill."   Jay J., Roachdale, IN

"A war criminal is not worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize."   Lars P., Afton, WI

"Our President had an unprecedented opportunity to effect a turn-around in foreign policy after the illegal and failed wars of his predecessor. He was hired to do so; but he has squandered the opportunity   and has in fact increased U.S. aggression. He does not deserve to be known as a Nobel Peace Prize recipient."    Lynn J., Roslyn, PA

"The PEACE prize should be given to those that work toward PEACE, not the ones that only talk about it."   Karen W., Weirsdale, FL

"Take it from Obama and give it to its rightful owner, Bradley Manning."   Rand K., Hotchkiss, CO

 "I urge you to rescind the Nobel from this coward who kills children with drones. Are you intentionally making the peace prize a joke or are you just not too bright?"   Janet M., Charlottetown, CA

"He's not as big a war criminal as Kissinger, so you should revoke both."   Earl F., Santa Maria, CA

"This man is a disgrace in the cause of peace. What were you thinking?"   Sherrill F., Davis, CA

"Given his actions and policies, Obama is more a Man of Pieces -- as in, "Blow them to pieces!' -- than he is a Man of peace."   Marcus M., San Rafael, CA

"He's done nothing to deserve it; and he's done many things to destroy peace in this world."   Danny D., Shoreline, WA
