Obama honored for making wars in Iraq and Afghanistan seem more peaceful
WASHINGTON D.C. – A shocked Obama woke up this morning to the news he had been awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. Obama was chosen for his “peaceful approach” to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan said the Nobel Peace Prize election committee.
The committee stated that “Obama has created a new climate in international politics. Peaceful wars are now the preferred instrument for resolving even the most difficult of international conflicts. Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama been so peaceful in the handling of wars on multiple fronts.” The committee went on to add, “In the past leaders of countries have always conducted their wars in a rude, confrontational, and hostile manner. Obama, on the other hand, has been very cordial and polite in the management of his wars.”
For example, Obama has been very hospitable in the way he has handled the topic of sending more troops to Afghanistan. In lieu of formal meetings, all of the military’s top personnel attended a series of dinner parties, socials, and mixers at the White House in the hopes of coming to a resolution on the issue. Each invitation sent to invitees were hand written in calligraphy by Obama himself, and sealed with a wax stamp.
Obama’s handling of the Iran nuclear weapons scandal is yet another example of his peaceful approach to war. When Obama found out that Iran had been secretly working on producing nuclear weapons, he arranged to have a lovely fruit basket sent to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Attached to the fruit basket was a beautiful poem hand written by Obama himself. The poem politely urged Ahmadinejad to halt his pursuit of nuclear weapons or face the consequences of having the United States bomb his country.
Obama is not the first President to receive the honor while in office. Former Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson also received the honor during their presidencies. However, Obama is the only President to win the award while simultaneously waging wars in two countries.
