Caracas: The Nobel Peace Prize
that the Norwegian Committee awarded last Friday to U.S. President Barack Obama
is a farce that will allow Washington to change its warmongering global tactics,
putting an end to the so-called "war on terror" and launching an
imperialist war "to secure peace on earth.”
That is how Vice President of
American Parliament and Venezuelan MP Carolus Wimmer described the award
bestowed on Obama.
Wimmer emphasized that the “war
on terror” policy has failed, because the world had come to realize that the U.S.
government, through its military industrial complex, the CIA and the Pentagon,
is the greatest terrorist in the world, he informed the Agencia Bolivariana
“Now with the Nobel Peace Prize
in his pocket, Washington will develop what might be called the imperialist war
to secure peace on earth, in other words, a complete fallacy in order to
continue its hegemonic policies,” he explained.
MP stressed that Obama should use his award and his "pacifist" oration
to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples, as was
stated by the Norwegian committee.
“In the first place, he must
pull the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan to put an end to the war in the
“In the second instance, he
should close the prisons at Guantanamo in Cuba and Abu Ghraib in Iraq, and release
all political prisoners and prisoners of war.”
“The third practical step
would be to compel the state of Israel to return the territories and wealth it
stole from the Palestinian people and defend the Arab people from the continuing
violations of human rights perpetrated by Israeli Zionism,” Wimmer said.
He added that another firm
step should be to end its support and aide to the coup regime in Honduras and
demand, as has the international community, the immediate return of the
constitutionally-elected president, Manuel Zelaya.
Additionally, Wimmer felt
that Obama should stop intervening in the internal affairs of Latin American
countries and the rest of the world, starting with respecting the sovereignty
and independence of all nations.
Last but not least, he asserted
that Obama must close all U.S. military bases in the world, recall its forces
to U.S. soil and abandon warmongering.
