Well, Obama has fired more cruise missiles than all other Peace Prize winners combined. He’s still probably behind Arafat for the number of bombs actually authorized, fwiw. In any case, a couple of troublemaking cranks want Obama’s Peace Prize stripped.
Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009. …
Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed the call: “How is it possible that a Nobel Peace Prize winner leads a gang to attack and invade? This is not a defence of human rights or self-determination.”
Best line in the story? It has to be this one.
Morales won the Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights in 2006.
