Today, a President of the largest violently military empire in the world, won the Nobel Peace Prize while his nation is mired in wars in three countries where his actions have oftentimes made things worse.

Let's also make this clear that the Nobel prizes are supposed to be awarded for work done the previous year (2008), so that means Obama was awarded the prize for campaigning for the presidency of the USA, where his "vision" (platform) was consistently pro-more war. The nominations are also due by February 1st. Ten days after the inauguration and about a week after a drone in Pakistan killed over 3 dozen innocent people.

He was awarded the prize for his "vision" for a "nuclear free world."

Let's examine this. Probably at least a few billion people on this planet have that same "vision" and I know thousands have been working on this "vision" for decades, beginning right around the time, the USA dropped two of the WMD on Japan.

I also have this "vision," but my vision extends to include "conventional" WMD like bunker buster bombs, drone bombers, and white phosphorous: WMD that are being used in the Middle East right now.

I have the "vision" of a nuclear free world, but there are many of us savvy people who know that the USA has been waging a nuclear war in the Middle East for a couple of decades now at least with the low grade WMD of depleted uranium. The USA used DU in Kosovo and the Balkans, also.

We billions of us have the "vision" but only one person in this world has his finger on the triggers of almost 10,000 active nuclear weapons, and that is Barack Obama. You know, the one who was just awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the one who has threatened Iran with military nuclear power if the leaders of that country even dare to get one atomic bomb.

Obama has the power, but his "vision" has not reduced the world's nuclear arsenal by one bomb. However, his "vision" has so far been responsible for killing 300 US service member and thousands of the unfortunate inhabitants of the countries we are occupying and destroying.
