Fidel Castro lauds Nobel prize for Obama

HAVANA (Reuters) - Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro lauded the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President Barack Obama, saying on Saturday it was "a positive measure" that was more a criticism of past U.S. policies than a recognition of Obama's accomplishments.

Castro said the prize made up for the blow Obama suffered last week when the International Olympic Committee awarded the 2016 Summer Games to Rio de Janeiro after Obama had flown to Copenhagen to pitch for Chicago, his adoptive hometown.

The Nobel Committee announced on Friday that Obama had won the peace price for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

The decision prompted surprise in many quarters and anger from Obama's conservative foes in the United States.

But Castro, who has generally written positively about Obama, was pleased at the decision by the committee.

"I don't always share the positions of that institution but I'm obligated to recognize that in this instance it was, in my judgment, a positive measure," Castro wrote in a column published in state-run media.

Fidel, you're not dead yet? You do know Satan is waiting for you, and it is not a good idea to keep him waiting.

I agree with Castro for once! The Nobel Committee was sending a message that they're happy Bush is no longer President. It has nothing to do with Obama.

This is further proof of how absurd the “Peace Prize” has become.

People are not fooled. They see right through this.

All those who loathe human freedom LOVE this award for the Zero who similarly hates freedom!

B.S. I want to see castro do it on live tv. I want to see this animal talk for about 5 minutes, in a close up interview. The assassin is either a vegetable, or he doesn’t even know who he is anymore, or the pos is dead.

Norway, it is so comforting that most of the world's fascists, communists and terrorists support your choice for the Nobel Peace Prize. Well done! You Norwegians are just doing what comes naturally to you - collaborating with fascists.

Fellow Freepers, do not forget that Norway was home to the “Quisling”.

Wikipedia
“Quisling, after Norwegian politician Vidkun Quisling, who assisted Nazi Germany to conquer his own country and ruled the collaborationist Norwegian government, is a term used to describe traitors and collaborators. It was most commonly used for fascist political parties and military and paramilitary forces in occupied Allied countries which collaborated with Axis occupiers in World War II, as well as for their members and other collaborators.

Merriam-Webster
“Etymology: Vidkun Quisling †1945 Norwegian politician who collaborated with the Nazis-Date: 1940”

Is anybody keeping score?

I understand some RAT has declared that Republican criticism of Ubama's NoBell Prize has echoed that of terrorists.

By the same token, how many world dicktaters have expressed approval of Chairman O's victory?

I never thought we could have a Communist dictator in the White House. We need to get back to requiring Military service from Presidential Resumes.

“I never thought we could have a Communist dictator in the White House. We need to get back to requiring Military service from Presidential Resumes.”

We really screwed up. Obama is NOT a citizen here. More and more my point is proven. He RELATES to Indonesia and Islam - not Africa. He see the U.S. as “wealthy” and undeserving of its wealth. e’s got a third world country redistribution of wealth in mind as well as to throw a few crumbs to the scum of our society to level the world wide playing field.

Obama is a Communist - no doubt about that and I am not exaggerating for attention. Worse yet, we have a SHADOW GOVERNMENT through his Czars. It is these non vetted Czars that are calling the shots. Demoncrats are blindly going along with it since they promote class envy and wealth redistribution but they fail to realize that they are being exploited too. Truly even some Demoncrats don't want Communism. The problem is they don't read the dam bills - they just pass em partisan style while the Czars WRITE THEM.
