    IMO he should not have gotten it. It is ironic that he escalates the war in Afghanistan and then get the Nobel Peace Prize. He has done nothing to make the world a peaceful place, rather he has done the opposite and only made it more violent.

    Do the right thing: Take away Obama's NPP

    He didn't deserve it when he won it. Completely destroyed its value. I think, if Obama was honest, even he'd have said, "WTF????" Prolly did, laughing in his beer.

    Given some of the past recieptitants I think the value of the Nobel Peace prise was destroyed before Obama got it, but yes he should not have gotten it either. He hadnt done anything at the time other then be elected

    Re: Nobel Committee asked to strip Obama of Peace Prize

    Is there any basis for taking away the prize after it has been awarded? Were there, Arafat is the first person it should be taken away from.

    The ironic thing is, with all of this complaining about President Obama, he actually had to be kicking and screaming into this. He initially didn't want to do this. He was dragged into it my Sarkozy in France and to a lesser extent Cameron in the U.K.

    Let's see...

    Algore won it.
    Jimmy Carter won it.
    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) won it.
    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) , Mohamed ElBaradei won it.
    The United Nations (U.N.) , Kofi Annan won it.
    Yasser Arafat won it.
    Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev won it.

    So, an accomplished list of commi's, corrupt incompetents, general incompetents, terrorists, and dimwits have won it.

    Absolutely he should keep it. It was premature, but it seems they predicted he would fit right in.

    Are they going to strip Arafat of his? The whole Nobel prize is a joke.

    Do you think you are flattering our president by pointing out that he had to be drug kicking and screaming into this?? Really?

    Plain scarey to think that could happen to the President of the United States. Plain scarey.

    Wow...I don't agree with Luda on everything but I gotta give props to a guy who puts things in perspective. Personally, though, don't think it should have been awarded in the first place.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
