‘ Revoke Obama’s Nobel Prize’
BOLIVIAN President Evo Morales has called for US President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize to be revoked for launching a military attack on Libya.
‘‘ How is it possible to give the Nobel Peace Prize to someone who has launched an invasion, a bombing? It’s a violation, an assault, an aggression,’’ said Mr Morales, a vocal critic of the US.
‘‘ Obama is the leader of a group of thugs who led an assault and an invasion – and that has nothing to do with defending human rights,’’ he declared.
Mr Morales’s comments follow Mr Obama’s decision to order the bombing of military targets in Col Gaddafi-led Libya as part of an UNapproved effort to protect civilians.
