Obama has not (hopefully yet) junked the original criteria
(“to contribute to fraternity in the world, to reduce armies and to
establish peace congresses”) for Nobel peace prize as it was case
with Ahtisaari. More in general in my article “” and more specific about Ahtisaari's
mediator tactics in my article “”.
Do you hear Mr.
Nobel rolling in his grave500.000 bodies or sign
committee's advancement can however promote peace in short term as
now it is maybe more difficult to Obama launch or support bombing of
Iran's nuclear facilities soon. Mr. Obama has also brought totally
new spirit and approach to international relations if compared to
previous administration so there is some hope that in near future
international relations and conflicts can be managed more civilized
manner. Will these my wishes come true we shall see later.
