When conscience wakes
You up at night,
You will regret
You took that bribe.
Henry Kissinger and Obama were perhaps the most notable war criminal winners. They bear responsibility for horrific high crimes against peace.
Millions of deaths. Mass destruction. Unspeakable human misery. Contempt for rule of law principles and democratic values.
It didn’t matter. In awarding Obama its 2009 Prize, Nobel Committee members turned truth on its head.
They cited his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”
“His vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” He supports spending over a trillion dollars upgrading America’s arsenal.
He’s a war criminal multiple times over. He deplores peace, stability, equity and justice. He’s beholden to monied interests. He spurns popular ones.
He’s waged war on humanity throughout his tenure. World peace hangs by a thread on his watch.
Nobel Committee members shamelessly claimed he “created a new climate in international politics.”
“Multinational diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions play.”
“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.”
Nobel Committee members long “sought to stimulate precisely the international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman.”
It’s hard imagining more convoluted rubbish. Twisted logic. Nonsense polar opposite truth.
It’s longstanding Nobel Committee reasoning. Politicizing annual awards. Doing so in lieu of choosing individuals most deserving.

My drones have killed
Which makes more foes
To fight again.
The “Terror War”
Strips human rights,
Our ally jails
The best who fight.
