Re: President Obama wins 2009 Peace Prize

found that very odd, though I appear to have missed a lot of what he's been up to

Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,”

Be ready for another 'autobiography' "How I won a Nobel Prize in 10 months, without achieving much"

Re: President Obama wins 2009 Peace Prize

Well it was blindingly obvious wasn't it?
Most terrorist attacks seem to originate from the middle east. More specifically (and I am not racist so please don't think badly of me if I'm not politically correct here) from extremist muslims.
Now.. Barrack.. is a muslim. These terrorists are going to look like real dumbos if they go and attack the USA claiming its their all time enemy when its being run by a muslim! Not only that their own supporters and local people in their home lands will also start to question the motives of people like Bin Laden too. Of course the UK having a significant relationship with the USA probably benefits from this too. Anyone blows up a bus or train now and Barrack will be in the press saying how bad it is etc. Again people will start to question the motives of terrorists.
What does get me.. Barrack seems to have done little. Ok he has undone a few things that Bush brought in but that seems to be about it. I like the guy myself.. but at the same time it feels like the calm before a storm. He's not really done anything big (and we all know the americans like big style). I can't help but wonder if somehow this could all be some part of a larger plan invented in the east to gain control of the most powerful nations in the world. It if is/was then its worked! In the mean time if you don't hear from me again...  Cheesy
Still, I like the guy, he's fresh and unlike bush isn't a big oil man! He does seem to have values and morals too.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Indeed, I was sure at his inauguration that he didn't place his hand on the Koran when he was sworn in.

You've been reading and believing too much American right-wing propaganda. He's Christian.  Crazy
