Why Obama Should Give his Nobel Peace Prize to Putin

Politics / Russia Oct 05, 2013 - 10:40 AM GMT

By: Pravda

Politics

Nomination of President Vladimir Putin for the Nobel Peace Prize is actively discussed in the world. In the West the idea was taken mostly with skepticism, but there is some unexpected support. Putin is thanked for singlehandedly preventing the third world and being able to resist the pro-Israel lobby in the United States.

On Wednesday, the initiative of All-Russian Fund of Education and the International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation was supported by Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro. He said that if anyone in this historic moment deserved the Nobel Peace Prize, it was President Vladimir Putin who helped to stop a war that threatened the Syrian people, Maduro said as quoted by EFE.


In the West the idea was met mostly with skepticism. The New York Times wrote that Putin was credited with starting a war to crush Chechen separatism, a full-scale attack on Georgia to solve a minor border conflict, criticism of NATO’s actions that led air war in Libya to stop Colonel Muammar Gaddafi guilty of the murder of thousands of Libyans, and selling deadly weapons to the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Some publications feel that unleashing an anti-gay campaign, providing protection to Edward Snowden and persecution of ***** Riot to be unworthy of a Nobel Prize nominee.

However, unexpected support came from Rupert Murdoch and his Fox News. A national security analyst, former employee of the services in the administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, Kathleen Troia McFarland wrote that Russian President Putin saved the world from almost certain death in one of the most skillful diplomatic maneuvers of all time. She added that he did it without the selfish and incompetent American President or a serious but ignorant Secretary of State who understood that he proposed a way out of the situation they have created. McFarland concluded that the entire world knew that Vladimir Putin was the one who really deserved the Nobel Peace Prize.

Another author, Michael Collins Piper from AFP wrote that President Putin has averted the United States of the shame of another stupid and unnecessary war in the Middle East. He wrote that Putin, a cold war leader who was considered an “enemy” of America, has done something that the American military elite wanted to do. He put an end to attacks on Syria by the pro-Israel lobby, resisted it almost single-handedly, and was demanding with Congress that was trying to lobby the initiative despite the overwhelming opposition from the American public. Putin has likely prevented the third world war, and, judging by the cheerleaders of Israel he also installed roadblocks in the way of Israel pushing United States towards a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran. The reporter believes that Russian President Putin deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

As for the opinion of the American public, according to statistics, 60 percent of the Americans opposed a military campaign in Syria. The petition posted on the White House website “We the People” said that given the fact that Mr. Obama has made ​​a sincere effort to start a war with Syria and to draw the American forces into an unwanted conflict while not having the support of the people, they believed that Mr. Obama should give his Nobel Peace Prize handed to him in 2009 to a true man of peace, Mr. Putin, President of Russia. The petition stated that Mr. Putin has forced the United States to avoid an unnecessary and unwanted military conflict and kept peace.

Another petition was launched over the weekend in France. Ordinary citizens – pensioners, doctors and teachers – wrote that while Obama’s army was stubbornly drowning in the Afghan swamp and Iraq wallowed in the terrorist violence, Barack Obama was bending over backwards to convince the U.S. Congress to start a new war. They also suggested Obama to give his peace prize to Putin.

The document stated that only French President Hollande did not see that Obama’s “efforts” did not contribute to peace and were aimed only at meeting the economic ambitions of the United States and justifying the sums in the military budget. The voting period for this petition will last 5 month, and votes can be cast on the website of the organization France-Petitions.com. The initiators promised to present it to Francois Hollande, Bernard-Henri Levy (political journalist, philosopher and writer), Barack Obama and Thorbjorn Jagland (President of the Nobel Prize Committee for Peace).

The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded since 1901 and is now the most famous and prestigious international award in the field of socio-political and humanitarian activities. Nominations are submitted no later than February 1st of the year of the award. Typically, the list of candidates includes a hundred names.

Heads of state are often awarded the Prize with various wordings. Here are some of the latest winners:

- In 2011 the award was divided into three equal parts and given to three women from Liberia. Among them was President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf awarded for the achievements in the struggle for democracy and women’s rights.

- In 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama was awarded for numerous efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.

- In 2000, President of the Republic of Korea Kim Dae-jung was awarded for the hard work in the reunification of North and South Korea, and strengthening of democracy and human rights in South Korea and East Asia in general.

- In 1994, Palestinian President Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin along with Shimon Peres were awarded for their efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East.

- In 1993, the Executive President of South Africa Frederik Willem de Klerk and Nelson Mandela were awarded for their work towards a peaceful end of the apartheid regime, and for preparing the foundation for a new democratic South Africa.

- In 1990, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev was awarded in recognition of his leading role in the peace process that characterizes important parts of the international community.

- In 1978, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin were awarded for the preparation and conclusion of the underlying agreements between Israel and Egypt.

- In 1971 Federal Chancellor Willy Brandt was awarded in recognition of the specific initiatives that led to the easing of tensions between East and West.
