Nobel Jury Speaks out in Defense of Obama Prize


President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize this year and that is what this aritcle is about. Some people think its good that he won it while others don't think he has done anything to recieve it. This article ties into American Government because its a honnor that Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize because he is the president of the United States. Some people think its a good thing for our government because it shows the other countries what he is trying to accomplish during his time as president. It also shows that the United States is attempting to make changes in world policies and show other countries that peace is a good thing.

no matter how good his intentions are, trying to create peace is obviously not the same as creating peace. Also, let's not forget Obama wants to escalate the war in Afghanistan. I'm not saying that it is a bad thing to escalate the war, but the point of the nobel peace prize is to recognize peacemakers in the world, something I haven't seen Obama do yet.
