Peace OR Politics?

U.S. President Barrack Obama wins the Nobel Price for Peace.
Predictably, it has ruffled quite a few feathers and raised many, many questions:

1. Is it too soon?
2. Does he really deserve it?
3. Would Alfred Nobel have made the same decision? Would he be reasonably happy with this one? Has the panel made the correct decision? Or have they been influenced?
4. Is it a political move - a tantalizing bait?
5. Is this just a manifestation of the European awe of a very different American President?
6. Does this move have anything to do with popularity?
7. Is everybody being too harsh?
8. The biggest contention - Would it have been appropriate if Obama had turned the Nobel down?

Obama's nice and all, but he has so much to do. All that miles to go stuff was written for him man.

1. Yes.
2.No
3.No way
4.Nope. Who stands to benefit?
5.Probably yes.
6.Seemingly yes. he's all over.
7.They have reason enough.
8.Too dumb. Poor thing dint see this coming.

And yeah, I intend to write a stunning masterpiece on war, racism and stupidity. Now gimmie a lit Nobel.
