Just to put the final nail in the coffin of the Presidents political career.

lol

Russian President Vladimir Putin was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by an advocacy group that credits him with bringing about a peaceful resolution to the Syrian-U.S. dispute over chemical weapons.

The Russian advocacy group International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation of Peoples of the World nominated Mr. Putin, characterizing his forged agreement with Syrian President Bashar Assad — to turn over admitted chemical weapons cache to international authorities — a world-class and prize-worthy piece of diplomacy, United Press International reported.

The group also took a dig at the United States.

While announcing the nomination during a press conference in Moscow, group officials said Mr. Putin deserved the Peace Prize much more than President Obama, who won the recognition in 2009.

“Barack Obama is the man who has initiated and approved the United States’ aggressive actions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now he is preparing for an invasion into Syria. He bears this title nevertheless,” said Iosif Kobzon, a member of the State Duma, UPI reported.

Conversely, he said, Mr. Putin tries a more peaceful approach.

“Our president, who tries to stop the bloodshed and who tries to help the conflict situation with political dialogue is, in my view, more worthy of this high title,” he said, adding that Mr. Putin steadfastly has opposed military intervention in Syria for the entire 2½ years the conflict has waged there.

I wouldn't mind seeing him get it.

At least he actually did something to earn it unlike Obama who did nothing for his.

For fuck's sake, you're cheering for the despot who is singehandedly propping up a government that gassed children in their sleep. And lol'ing because it will give you some internet points on your favorite side of a cheerleading contest between two grotesque political parties.

Those people in Syria are actually people. Those people have families. At least pretend that's more important than your kindergarten level domestic political debates.

So being gassed is worse than being bombed by the GOUSA?

Explain that to the families of the dead in countries too numerous to count.
