Obama bags Nobel Peace Prize

President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in a decision that surprised many including the president himself.

Obama accepted the award despite the calls of many that he should turn down the prize. "I will accept this award as a call to action," he said.

Some have called the prize an award for "good intentions," but I think that it also has a lot to do with his moves on a nuclear-free world.

a musical response to this: Michel Montecrossa dedicates his song and video 'True Politics #2' to President Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize Award.


Michel Montecrossa ( is the German-American artist who accompanied the election campaign of the president and dedicated a song to Barack Obama ('New President') when he was "only" a candidate.

If we read what the Nobel Committee says it is obvious that it is not only about good intentions. It is about the extraordinary changes that Obama has already accomplished this year, creating a new atmosphere in the world by the spirit of cooperation, negotiations, the disarmament of nuclear weapons. They want to support what is already accomplished, so that this new politic can continue and transform the world.

It appears that the people who are criticizing this award are mostly people who just don't really believe in peace, other than perhaps the kind of peace that comes from defeating one's adversaries.

Dear President Obama :

I'am Chenjian. I always pay attention to your action for I respect you since you successfully became the president of the USA. No matter the final result, I know you are a nice person, and that’s nothing to suspect. I am also a nice Chinese young man. China lay emphasis on “family” concept! The corn of family is love. Because of love, people gather together. Because no love, people separate themselves from original whole family.

As a Chinese youth, I respectly invite you to visit China. If you add this arrangement, then the rates and affection of you and your party will increase in the world. That’s good news.

The another important thing is that I will suggest you visit a famous Chinese man YunFeng. He is the most unique person in the world. Chinese people are spreading YunFeng’s wide love to the world. He inherited the whole traditional condition of China. And we also are building the big family in the world. Of course, YunFeng is circle's center.

There are three reasons that I suggest you visit him.
