    How about we strip him of the presidency and let him keep the peace prize?

    Except I think Carter deserved it too... I know he does a lot of work with Mandela through The Elders.

    I really like watching South African soccer games... The people go nuts, and it seems like they usually wave around something praising Mandela... so much pride. It's too bad he couldn't give a speech at the FIFA game. I guess Zuma was good enough... but I don't miss the horns..

    They gave him an award knowing full well he clearly did nothing to deserve it and now they want to take it back? IN the eyes of many people this military action is helping people who are fighting a brutal dictator which is certainly more noble than doing nothing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    What absolute rubbish. The US did not attack Libya - it is enforcing a UN no-fly zone against the Gaddafi regime with France, Italy, and Britain. It is doing so because, as you may recall, the dictator was using aircraft to demolish entire Libyan cities for protesting against him. This is the reason for the UN no-fly zone. I understand that many people in dogmatic corners of the left can't tell the difference between peace and pacifism, but the reality is that the UN no-fly zone serves peace and helps protect people who are exercising their human rights. The President is doing what's right, as usual. It's not the Nobel Pacifism Prize, and as for Paulist Libertarians who resent even being reminded that the world outside our borders even exists, it certainly isn't the Nobel Isolationism Prize.

    Oh, yes, naturally a guy who promoted the practice of putting old tires around the necks of political opponents and setting the gasoline they're filled with on fire is as deserving of a Peace Prize as a terrorist like Arafat and a man who promoted putting C4 in toys for Afghani children, as Gorbachev did, and no less deserving that the President Who Never Earned It.

    Of course Obama should keep his bogus Prize. Since he did nothing to earn it there can't be any criteria to take it away, either. Let the Nobel Committee award it to Gadhaffy next year, if they're miffed at Obama.

    Oh the irony. Mohandas Ghandi was never awarded the nobel peace prize, but Barack Obama was. The world is such a funny place.

    Re: Nobel Committee asked to strip Obama of Peace Prize

    Let me see here......

    1) Obama gets a Nobel peace prize.

    2) Obama bombs Libya.

    Making him pay is not the point. It would be a fine dessert, but what matters is that the Libyan people get a chance. Now, we <i>owe</i> them this chance - Gaddafi only has those aircraft because of the money he gets from selling us oil.

    Apparently I exaggerated. Many cities and towns that have been devastated by battles were also targeted with air strikes, so most of the damage has been done through shelling rather than bombs or strafing, although air strikes by regime forces had badly denuded opposition strength.
