Western centers of power have already destroyed credibility of their mainstream media by using it as their propaganda tool too often to a point that only blind cannot see it. Their next target is – International institutions and prizes that used to enjoy respect world wide. Ultimately they also got geographically confused and very often call small bunch of countries (unavoidable “five eyes” plus NATO-stan) “international community”! Is anyone still teaching geography in the western world?
Nobel Peace Prize was one of the world most respected internationally. If you look at it now then you might find several names that should rather be in jail or at least historically recognized as perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
In order to maintain “standard” of some (probably most) international institutions awarding people for variety of things I would like to propose Donald Duck for the next Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. At least we know that he had never bombed anyone, died before they invented drones ….. Please start voting!
1. Merkel & EU refugee crisis
Merkel received the International Four Freedoms Medal from the Netherlands-based Roosevelt Foundation on Thursday. The German Chancellor was honored for her “great moral leadership,” promoting the “four freedoms” famously articulated by then US President Franklin Roosevelt in 1941: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear.
Critics questioned Merkel’s merits where freedom of speech was involved, reminding of her decision to allow the prosecution of a German comedian who wrote a crude poem about Turkish President Erdogan.
2. Tony Blair, children & liberty
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has collected a clutch of international awards honoring his “global legacy” in dealing with the world’s problems. Despite being responsible for involving Britain into the 2003 Iraq war, which among other problems caused the deaths of thousands of civilian children, in 2014 the US arm of Save the Children recognized Blair for his role in “making poverty history.” The “Global Legacy Award” caused widespread criticism, with hundreds of Save the Children staff signing an internal protest letter calling the decision “morally reprehensible” and “inappropriate.” Over 100,000 more signed an online petition, urging the award to be revoked.
Tony Blair – to be blunt – is a war criminal and should be made responsible for murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent people in Iraq. Many of these were children.
3. Kissinger & Nobel Peace Prize
The US Secretary of State under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, Henry Kissinger was among the most disputable award-winners ever. Kissinger received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, despite his alleged involvement in a campaign of political repression in Latin America, known as Operation Condor, the US’s active support for the Pinochet coup in Chile in 1972, as well as US bombing campaigns in Cambodia. The choice of the Nobel Prize winner was widely mocked, with critics saying the award has “made political satire obsolete.”
Another one that should be in a jail cell!
4. Barack Obama – Nobel Peace Prize – for what?
President Obama received the distinguished award in 2009 for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” with the Committee stating that “only rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.”
The chairman of the Nobel Prize Committee, Thorbjorn Jagland, has in vain urged Obama to “consider” returning the award.
Barack Obama was seen as the biggest hope for improving international relations as well as lives of ordinary Americans since days of J.F. Kennedy. He (so far) delivered pretty much NOTHING!
Well, ladies and gentlemen I am absolutely convinced that Donald Duck would deserved any of the above mentioned “international” prizes than named politicians.
Maybe we should also consider moving Organization of United Nations to Disneyland?
