The Nobel Peace Prize seems to have lost the value that its mentor Alfred Nobel had bequeathed upon it. Alfred Nobel’s invention of dynamite made him rich but unhappy so he established the Nobel Prize to undo the destructive effects the dynamite had brought upon the humanity, by promoting peace. However, in the recent times the Nobel peace prize seems to be favouring the will of America. Likewise, the Noble peace prize to Obama, the man who has accelerated the attack on Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan - is contrary to the Nobel's criteria for the award. The Noble Peace prize to Liu Xiaobo seems to serve the US interest of undermining China, potentially the greatest threat to the U.S.China is prospering, and the Chinese are proud. This award will transform Liu into a national hero and strengthen his voice for democracy which may result in political instability and thus reducing the power of state (Which has been the driving force behind Chinese development since past two decades)
The question arises, who are eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize? A dissident who protest against their nation policy and work in accordance with the U.S. interest is eligible.
Did any of the Latin American dissident of the U.S, supported dictators ever receive a Nobel Peace Prize? No, they all were exterminated by CIA trained “Death Squads.". Why didn’t Mohandas Ghandi, Che Guevara, and other men who successfully liberated their people, and who are considered by historians "Men of Universal Destiny," didn’t ever receive a Nobel? Instead it was awarded to Henry Kissinger for the U.S. war and defeat in Vietnam and to make Kissinger's award look real, the Committee offered the Vietnamese foreign minister Le Duc a Nobel but he refused the offer. According to him "There was never a peace deal with the U.S. We won the war". Did the Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko receive a Nobel peace for the Soviet war and defeat in Afghanistan? Of course not.
Was Barack Obama awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for keeping them in captivity, far worse than the Chinese prisons without a trial? Why Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Richard Tsvangirai, who has uplifted Zimbabwe from doldrums, didn’t receive the Noble peace prize, just because he did no good to USA? Was the life of Liu Xiaobo, who at least had a trial, was worth winning a Nobel Peace Prize?
The Nobel prizes have often been for the U.S. politicians, and the enemies or dissidents of the U.S. enemies. I wonder why still this prize is referred as Noble Prize for Peace; rather it should be Nobel Prize for enforcing US policies, as these Prizes serves exclusively the U.S. global interests.
