Ron Paul Sums Up Nobel-Peace-Prize-Winning President Obama In One Short Sentence

Tyler Durden's picture

Following our discussion of the unprecedented bombing-fest that has been undertaken during President Obama's reign...

Seven years after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," despite having been in office for less than one year and having pretty much no actual, tangible foreign diplomacy accomplishments at the time, President Obama will depart the White House having dropped 26,171 bombs on foreign countries around the world in 2016, 3,027 more than 2015.

According to an analysis of Defense Department data from the Council on Foreign Relations, a non-partisan think tank, the majority of Obama's 2016 bombs were dropped on Syria and Iraq.  Meanwhile, Afghanistan, a country President Obama vowed U.S. troops would evacuate completely by the end of his Presidency, was also bombed over 1,300 times, a 40% increase over 2015.  Per McClatchy DC:

The U.S. dropped 79 percent of the anti-Islamic State group coalition bombs in Syria and Iraq, totaling 24,287. That figure, along with others analyzed by CFR, is likely lower than the actual number dropped because one airstrike can involved multiple bombs.

 

Obama did authorize a troop surge in Afghanistan — a conflict he pledged to end during his campaign — where the U.S. dropped 1,337 bombs in 2016. There are currently 8,400 U.S. troops left in the country, more than Obama initially wanted to keep there at the end of his term. The U.S. only dropped 947 bombs in Afghanistan in 2015.

 

The U.S. also dropped more bombs in Libya in 2016 than it did in 2015. Nearly 500 bombs were dropped in the North African country that has essentially been ungoverned since the fall of dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. He was captured and killed during the Libyan Civil War, kicked off by the Arab Spring protests that also began the Syrian conflict.

Bombs Dropped

Ron Paul opined on the farce via his Facebook page...

Barack Obama started with a Nobel Peace Prize and is ending his presidency with the Pentagon's Distinguished Public Service Medal.

 

 

Sounds about right for a president who bombed 7 nations and became the first in U.S. history to be at war every single day of his eight year administration.

Just remember America, as Obama signs 'The Ministry of Truth' act into reality, "War is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength."

Is there a Nobel War Prize?

Not yet. But maybe a Darwin Laggard Leader of the Free World Fuck Up Prize should be established with an EBT honorarium.

Will Obama keep one of his drones just in case he wants to bomb someone after he's X-presidente?

I can only think of three words..

One refers to fornication in the present tense…

.. the next to ghetto dwelling black street scum…

.. and the last to the cult of a fake deity named allah.

 

..outside of that , I am sure he is a swell american.

The "Pentagram" medal is for meeting or exceeding the Military Industrial Complex quota all eight years in office (he also got a set of Steak Knives and a mug of Golf tees).  Probably got a "Groupon" for everyone's favorite Pizza Place too.

Obama's the Mass Murderer and Chief, and he will be paid millions by the defense contractors he enriched, the banksters he kept out of prison and the drug pushers in lab coats (to whom he granted multi-generational, endless amounts of taxpayer money).

beemasters's picture

Since there has been no mass street protest targeting his foreign policies, they think everything is just hunky-dory. Most politicians are out of touch.

but but but...he's a muzzie

who has slaughtered tens of thousands of muzzies (hundreds of thousands?)

he's a skype puppet, nothing else

I can sum it up even faster. THE GUY IS A BUM.

That star of a medal would be pointing down, right?

Dave5150's picture

Since he acted quickly and bombed more in 2016 than in 2015, they automatically doubled the number of golf tees!

Totally lookning forward to Lee Harvey Oswald or Sihan Sirhan moment.

First US predsident I'd be content with seeing shot in a gay men's restroom.

Come on you sicko's and psycopaths (who infest our government), Make this shit appen..

Me, pleading to the whorehouse of capitol hilll, as if it made any difference.

To honor Orwell we should call it "the war is peace" prize.

Yes. It's called the "Sveriges Rijksbank Prize for Economics".

The MSM likes to call it the "Nobel Prize in Economics", but we here like to call it the "Noble Prize in Banksternomics*"

* aka Ponzinomics 

Its winners typically concoct a Thesis for MOAR fiat Debt, that transfers a nation's wealth from the Many to the Self-Chosen Few. These Chosen Few like to cite some ancient writings and Sky Guy, that approve of their ways and means. This seems to actually work, interestingly enough.

So many bombs, so few terrorists killed.

this muslim marxist faggot is gonna be ALL in our face

AlaricBalth's picture

26,171 bombs over 8 years. Almost 9 bombs per day.
This President is probably the only CIC who has killed someone each and every day of his 2 term run.

Nobel Peace Prize? Hell, call Guinness. It's got to be a record.

AlaricBalth's picture

Thanks for the correction. My bad.
So then, 71 bombs a day for 2016.

How much is the US Gov billed for the avarage bomb?   Talk about burning money....

venturen's picture

A Reaper drone costs $28 million; one Hellfire missile (Lockheed Martin/Raytheon) costs about $70,000; one Paveway bomb (Lockheed Martin/Raytheon) about $20,000. The total cost of one weapons load for a Reaper – four Hellfire/ two Paveway – is at least $320,000, a third of a million dollars.

I tried finding equivalent for the Russian forces in Syria.

The Admiral Kuznetsov aicraft flew 420 missions hitting 1252 terrorist targets in 2 months. No mention of how many bombs, just useless targetting figures.

The main land-based forces have eliminated 35,000 troops, 725 training camps and 405 ammuntion plants presumably in the whole campaign since late 2015. Again no mention of how many bombs. How are we supposed to work out MIC profit figures if they just give useless data about targets destroyed and nothing about bomb counts?

RedBaron616's picture

And where was Congress?  Meekly paying the bills for the bombs without a whimper.  Exactly what good are they, even when the GOP is in charge?

It would be nice if this motherfucker faded into the sunset.....but I fear he won't be able to keep his cack sucker shut.

Also True: 12 more days and war will continue, so will drone assassinations and thousands of innocents will be murdered by the U.S. regime - STILL

The people who hired Obama are still in power.

This POS will not only go down as the WORST president in U.S. history, but as the most treasonous

For a second.....I thought I was reading the Onion.

amadeus39's picture

How can any sane person think Obama acted treasonously but agree he was responsible for all that bombing?Where's the logic in that? The military, intelligence and industrial complexes are responsible. How could anyone hope that some small neighborhood activist would be able to take a stand against such powerful forces vested in the business of war. The electorate-all of us- are guilty of treason and stupidity.

 

BullyBearish's picture

I don't remember being allowed to vote on any executive orders which circumvented the "democratic" process and enabled the wasting of our nation's blood and treasure against our best interests and for third-party nations...thus TREASON

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

The bigger Treason is to let him get away with it.

BullyBearish's picture

Trump going after Holder, Obama, Clinton, Biden, Noodlewoman, Lerner, etc. would go SO FAR in PROVING his "Drain the Swamp" promise and his putting America First!!

It is tragic that the firs black president is one of the most despicable human turds on the face of the earth.
