The Norwegian Nobel Committee must be delusional. That is the only possible explanation for their ridiculous decision to award the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama.
If Obama continues on his current path the anti-west, anti-semitic and venal United Nations will play a much more prominent role in world diplomacy and American decisionmaking, unilateral U.S. nuclear disarmament will become a reality and Islamic actions that clearly violate Western and Judeo-Christian values and can only be described as hateful, hurtful and destructive will be even more accepted and encouraged. It means a war in the Middle East which will almost assuredly lead to a third world war, continued human rights abuses throughout the Muslim world and further large-scale attacks on the American homeland, Europe and Israel. If the Committee believes that Obama’s policies will lead to peace, security and prosperity for all they are sadly mistaken. Only the opposite will occur.
America’s political system with it’s checks and balances may be the only thing that can prevent these disasters from happening. Let’s hope that the prospect of the Democrats losing their majority in the 2010 midterm elections will curb Obama until then. In the long run let’s hope that he winds up being a one term President because he is demonstrably unfit for the job, not only in foreign policy but in domestic policy as well.
