Ohhh BAM! ahhh

President Barack Obama was surprised and humbled to win the Nobel Peace Prize of 2009 and would accept it as a "call to action" to work with other nations to solve the problems of the 21st century. (The White House)

Obama said it is still in America's vital national interest to "dismantle and destroy" al-Qaida terrorists and extremist allies. "I intend to finish the job," he said. (West Point)

Please, explain to me ....

It's politics. No real way to explain.

The norse logic, I can't explain, but I remember Woodrow Wilson. US eventually joined the first world war, thus putting an end to all wars. Wilson was awarded the Nobel peace prize, too.

I think - life is too short - enjoy the time we have and let the Politicians fight it out.

This man did nothing to earn it. (Sorry, I don't like him).

well,
this post
brings to mind
the fact that Nobel, a swede,
established the peace prize and invented high explosives (dynamite) all on one afternoon ;)

so, i guess it all kind of makes sense

He needs to say something that sounds important.

Jon said...

I know! WTF!

I've gotta give it to Ted's comment above about Nobel and the explosives... i think he's on to something there

:-D

to /t
Alfred Nobel invented an explosive for mining and construction - not for warfare. You call him a "swede". Is it the national character that makes Obama(black) send soldiers to Afganistan(badland) and Thorbjörn Jagland(norwegian) awarding him the Nobel peace prize?
It does not make sence to me, but I am swede, and not very bright.

jeannette stgermain said...

yeah, I like that explanation too...

/t. said...

i mention
Nobel's nationality
as a simple matter of fact,
and because i know that anna-lys, also a swede, is justifiably proud of her heritage and nationality

i mention Nobel's invention of dynamite and the peace prize 'on one afternoon(!)' as a matter of non-fact... a point of humour for some

no disrespect is intended (to either Nobel or Swedish people)

cheers

He, who sows dragon's teeth, will certainly harvest dragons.
The norwegian parliament are just puppets. Why should the leader of the world's greatest power listen to Oslo?

ANNA-LYS said...

I do think it is important to notice all symbols used in the comments, an emoticon is a sign that gets the content an other meaning, than what the sentences stands for. Humour is important, and is also what makes us manage the complexity and difficulties in our lives and the world, we actually share!

I must stress, that my last comment was to the original query from Anna Lys, not to /t. The one who plants dragon's teeth is Obama. Why he does it, I don't know. Maybe it is a tradition from former Nobel Prize Laureates Wilson and Kissinger to provoke reaction. They created Hitlerism in Germany an Red Khmers in Cambodja, respectively. The al-Qaeda might not even exist, but it will, if enough troops are sent to Afganistan.

ANNA-LYS said...

Ohhh I have been to provocative here, haven't I?

Simple - it is called Jagland...
