OBAMA’S NOBEL PRIZE / WARS FOR PEACE

From Salon.com:

The Global elite have given Europe’s seal of approval, with Obama’s preemptive Nobel Peace prize, for Obama’s continued wars and occupations of Iraq, Afghanistan as well as attacks on Pakistan ~ which are now being seen as legitimate Orwellian Wars for Peace: Allen L Roland

As George Orwell knowingly wrote ~ War is peace, Freedom is slavery and Ignorance is strength and nowhere is this more apparent than President Obama’s selection by the Global Elite as the winner of the Nobel Peace prize. This award thus legitimizes Obama’s illegal wars and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the attacks on Pakistan as necessary wars for peace, further enslaving the people of those countries and strengthening the ignorance of the public ~ who will now begin to believe, as Orwell predicted, that war is peace.

As Bill Van Auken writes ~ ” Receiving the Nobel Peace Prize has always been a dubious distinction. Its reputation has never really recovered from the decision to award it in 1973 to Henry Kissinger, who is today unable to leave the United States for fear of being arrested as a war criminal. His co-recipient, Le Duc Tho, the Vietnamese leader who negotiated the Paris peace agreement with Kissinger, refused to accept the award, pointing out that the accord had brought no peace to his country.”

Kissinger eagerly accepted his tainted award which was obviously honoring an illegal preemptive war as a means to peace. In that context, it’s easier to understand why Gandhi was not awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

Van Auken goes on to write ” thus, we have the irony of President Obama appearing Friday in the Rose Garden in the mid-morning to deliver remarks that began with a declaration that he was “surprised and deeply humbled” to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. He then marched back into the White House to meet with his war council and discuss sending tens of thousands more troops to Afghanistan and escalating the bombing in that country and across the border in Pakistan. Using his statement to issue veiled threats against Iran, Obama went out of his way to declare himself the “commander-in-chief” and refer to the two wars and occupations over which he presides. ” http://www.wsws.org/articles/2009/oct2009/pers-o10.shtml

The glaring contradiction in giving the peace prize to Obama as he prepares to send more troops into Afghanistan is really  quite simple to the Global elite ~ it is meant to legitimize Washington’s escalation in Afghanistan, its attacks on Pakistan and its continued occupation of Iraq, giving them Europe’s seal of approval as wars for peace.

As Orwell wrote ~ ” If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear ”

And many people do not want to hear, as I wrote in March, 2009, that America has become an Oligarchy ( a government ruled by a powerful few ) versus a Republic ( a government limited by law ) as the banking and Wall Street Masters of the Universe continue their tyranny and class economic rape while the public slowly ignites in anger and confusion. http://blogs.salon.com/0002255/2009/03/23.html

Orwell explains ~ “The essence of oligarchical rule is not father-to-son inheritance, but the persistence of a certain world-view and a certain way of life … A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors… Who wields power is not important, provided that the hierarchical structure remains always the same.

And have things really changed since Obama became President ?

As Paul Craig Roberts rightfully points out ~ No Bush policy has changed. Iraq is still occupied. The Guantanamo torture prison is still functioning. Rendition and assassinations are still occurring. Spying on Americans without warrants is still the order of the day. Civil liberties are continuing to be violated in the name of Oceania’s “war on terror.” http://www.counterpunch.org/roberts10092009.html

Dr Ron Paul also offers a sobering assessment of Obama’s Peace prize in this five minute video ~ and the present need for a true anti-war and Peace movement.

Orwell also wrote ~ ” In a time of universal deceit ~ telling the truth is a revolutionary act ” and this is certainly the case in 2009.
