The mission of this brief script is to give the reader an overview about the actions of the current President of the United States of America and evaluate wheather he was worth the Nobel Price or not.

Let’s start from what he did...

…he just approved the highest defence budget in worlds hystory, higher than any other approved by his repubblican, belligerant, predecessors.

…in this months he had to prove he was worth the price, he had to do something remarkable, that’s why by the day he took seat at the white house the number of casualities in AFG has reached new hights at a pace 3 times faster than during the Bush era, very peacefull indeed!

…he just increased the number of troops departing for AFG by 50%, 10.000 more alongside the expected 20.000

…not to mention he proved himself as a coward, refusing to meet the Dall ai Lama and by not mentioning by name –in his speech after being notified bout the price - Neda, the Iranian girl killed during recent demonstrations who should have been the actual winner by the opinion of the Washington Post.

All those facts drop a significant ammount of shadow over obama’s face, yet, i’m sure that his supporters will find a way to persude themselves and us that those actions were: necessary, unavoidable and usefull for peace and of course all singullary worth the price
And now, let’s have a look at the unkept promises:

    - Out from Iraq within 16 months, that was the initial promise, a battlehorse of his campaign, suddenly the months just turned out to be 19, and that 50.000 soldiers’ll stay after the departure, 2/3 of the dispatch that defeated Saddam.

    - And what about Guantamo? As far as i know is still there, operating, yet a five-times bigger prison is about to rise above the sands of AFG without consensus neither from Karzai, nor the population and far from the eyes of pubblic opinion. Also, blessed by the fact that it’ll rise in a war theater martial law could be applied for prisoners who won’t...
