‘ Re­voke Obama’s No­bel Prize’

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

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.
