Obama’s Nobel Prize Stuns War Victims

CAIRO — Ajmal Khan, 55, could not believe his ears when he heard about US President Barack Obama’s surprise win of the Nobel Peace Prize.

"I don't think he deserves the peace prize," Khan, a Pakistani mechanical engineer, told the Los Angeles Times on Saturday, October 10.

"Has he done anything special to bring peace in the world? Killing goes on in Afghanistan, in Iraq, and in other countries.

Obama was granted the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 on Friday, for his "extraordinary" efforts in international diplomacy and hastening nuclear disarmament.

"If the category is peace, he doesn't deserve the peace prize," said Nadeem Umtaz, 49, a salesman in Islamabad.

"The situation keeps getting worse in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

"I think he got the prize because he's a powerful man, that's all," he said.

Since Obama came to office, the US stepped up drone attacks in north-western Pakistan on claims of hunting down Taliban and Al-Qaeda operatives.

But the attacks have killed hundreds of civilians and only a few Taliban leaders.

Obama has also failed to end the eight-year Afghan war. Instead, he ordered more troops to the central Asian Muslim country to fight the Taliban.

"There's no end to death and destruction in Pakistan and Afghanistan," said Ayaz Wazir, a security analyst and expert on Pakistan's tribal areas.

For What?

Many Pakistanis say that Obama deserves court trial, not Nobel Prize, for the destruction in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

"Everyone I know curses Obama," Nasir Ali, a taxi driver, said.

"And if he was here in front of me, I would curse him, too."

The same sentiments are echoing among war-ravaged Afghans.

"Things are just the same as the way they were by the administration of [George W.] Bush," Kabul restaurant worker Obaid Alam told the US news network NBC.

"Things are not better, things are worse and worse."

The Afghan man is puzzled how Obama was chosen to the Nobel Prize, even though he ordered more troops to the war-torn country.

"The number of US Army [troops] has increased here, the number of terrorist attacks increased here," he said.

He said that the extra US troops Obama has ordered are adding more fuel to the raging conflict.

"I’m kind of confused whether that Nobel Award [is] for all those things."

Obama has recently sent more than 30,000 extra troops to Afghanistan and is mulling requests for thousands more.

There are over 103,000 foreign troops in Afghanistan, which the US invaded following the 9/11 attacks.

"I'm not sure I understand -- this isn't for peace here, is it?" Bank worker Homaira Reza told the Los Angeles Times.

"Because we haven't got any."
