    Barack Obama wins 2009 Nobel Peace Prize

    Code:
    US President Barack Obama [ Images ] was on Friday named the surprise winner of 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for his 'extraordinary' efforts to strengthen international diplomacy, hardly less than a year after coming to power.
    
    Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics, a statement released by the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, lauding his vision of a world without nuclear weapons.
    
    It was because of Obama's effort that multi-lateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play, the statement said.
    
    Forty eight-year-old Obama is the fourth US President to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
    
    The prize committee said the US President's vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations.
    
    Obama was honoured 'for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples', it said.
    
    'Thanks to Obama's initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened,' it said.
    
    '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,' it said, adding, 'His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population.'
    
    The Committee said it endorsed Obama's appeal that 'Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.'
    
    Former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari won the award in 2008.
    

    BULL SHI T

    But indeed if it inspires him to actually act along and actually achieve something in the future then I'm all for it.

    There were 205 candidates and all they got is Obama.I like him but he is president only for few months.All other candidates must have devoted major time of their lives trying to establish peace.

    And please move it to random news.

    I think he deserves Nobel Peace Prize .He really got all people's attention to strenghten diplomacy and international unity. I think you guys got from the view of beign a peace struggler for the past one year , but he has made people's mind together by making peace compared to his predecessor . So I think he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize ,
