Obama Defends His Nobel Peace Prize Following Over Libya Campaign

Bolivian President Evo Morales and Russian lawmaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky are two of the many political figures who are calling for President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize to be rescinded after his decision to bomb Libya.

The accusations surrounding the U.S president’s actions in Libya have to with the control of oil, not peace.

However, Obama made somewhat of a rebuttal stating that there is a contradiction being the commander-in-chief while desiring peace.

“When I received that award, I specifically said there was an irony because I was already dealing with two wars.”

He also pointed out,

“I think the American people don’t see any contradiction in somebody who cares about peace also wanting to make sure that people aren’t butchered because of a dictator who wants to cling to power.”

Should he keep the Peace Prize?
