Why Mr .Gandhi, Gromyko, Che and Tsvangirai were deprived of Nobel?


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.

Great analysis! right to the point.

Quite a nonsense,

what about the prices, for example, to:

- Adolfo Pérez Esquivel (who fought against Argentina's military junta which had ties to the USA government),

-Martin Luther King, Jr. (not exactly a friend of the USA establishment eiter)

etc.

To your post: I can prove about anything if I only pick the names that support a given statement without discussing the whole picture...


Cheers

I have no idea who Chev is. Do you mean Che Guevara?

Of course your piece begs the larger question of why you think an independent panel of Norwegian intellectuals have any regard for US interests?

The Norwegian government that controls the Nobel Committee that decide the awards, has transformed the Nobel Peace Prize into a propaganda tool by appointing as directors of the Nobel Peace Prize committee right wing pro- American Norwegian politicians.

Replying to this comment, this article wants to prove that Americans influence Nobel prizes. You could have cited the name of Mother Teresa too. There have been instances when prize was awarded to deserving people...Please justify Nobel prize to Obama and Kissinger.

I certainly can not speak for the writer of the comment you refer to.

However, he seems to point out the names of people who not only deserved the Nobel Price but obtained it on the basis of an explicit anti-US (US establishment) agenda.

Obama got the Nobel price in parts for his activities concerning nuclear disarmament. What that does for peace in the world I should not have to explain.

Of course there have been some doubtful decisions concerning the Nobel price. But I agree with the writer of the previous comment that it is hard to see any explcit pro US agenda behind the Nobel prices.

Yes, we can't generalize. You can say it is hard to see any explcit hidden agenda behind the Nobel prices IN GENERAL, but this time, if we refer to the specific situation at hand, it seems that US does have the intention to undermine China through the manipulation of Nobel Price, given its speed of development.

well said. Award to Obama already a biggest joke, now to Liu, someone who did nothing for mankind. Surely there are better choices out there.

Ghandi should have been awarded the prize. Most of the Nobel Peace Prize candidates mentioned here fell far short of the mark. Neither Kissinger nor Le Duc deserved the Nobel Prize, their Vietnam peace deal was fake, indeed. Still, as a political fig leaf it gave President Nixon enough cover to withdraw from the war, so it served a purpose for both sides. President Obama should have graciously turned the prize down. His well-meaning efforts toward nuclear disarmament simply enlarges a process started by other leaders. He did "surge" the U.S. troop level in Afghanistan. This, however, is a legitimate response for a nation at war and not a crime as the blog author implies. The Chinese political prisoner is heroic on an individual scale but hardly qualifies for a Nobel Peace prize, either. I don't think the Nobel committee serves U.S. interests by selecting Liu Xiaobo but it does show their preference for individual political freedom. Consider it a constructive western criticism rather than an effort to menace or undermine the Chinese people. The West is not at war with China.

I like Obama. He is a very nice guy. The reason Obama won was for being the first black President and for not being George W. Bush. He had not done anything to merit receiving this prize and his winning it in this way cheapens the prize. This is not a US led effort but rather a European and global comment on how much they hated Bush. One day Obama may do something to deserve the price but until then there a lot of other worthy candidates.
