ObamaBarack Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 that cought everybody surprized including Obama himself. When the prize was declared in Oslo,Norway, Obama was in sleep. After he heard the news, White House took time to express its first reaction to the announcement.

After becoming president, Obama started to spread hope of peace in the world even in his first inuguaral speech. He adopted a policy of reconciliation with the conflicting parties of the world. He visited the Muslim World and extended his hand for mutual respect, offers Iran direct talk, is trying to mediate peace-talk between Israel and Palestain, decided to close the American presence in Iraq, and is trying to fucus US war of terrorism on Al-Quaeda. He prefers multilateral approach for negotiating world conflicts and wants to make UN the main focus for decision making in international affairs. He offers Russia for reducing nuclear stocks and wants to prevent the neuclear proliferation in the world. He feels concern for the climate change and wants US to play its due role in this regard.

But all these are hopes. Most the aspirations are not materialised yet, some even not take any step. He is only 8 months in his office, his nomination was submitted only 2 weeks before the closing date. Under his command, US is at war with two countries and extending the war into another with many civilians dying every day because of the war.

We appreciate his effort for peace which he just initiates and we have to wait for the result.

Isn’t it a bit premature for him to get the prize? We are not sure how it will affect his mindset.

An ordinary citizen

Post-script:

Dr. Muhammad Yunus, the Nobel Laureate for peace in 2006 in an interview to BBC congratulated Obama on his getting Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.
