US Government Will Boycott Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony
The Government of the United States of America has announced that it will boycott the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to be held in Oslo. It has instructed its Ambassador in Norway to refuse the invitation to the ceremony and not to take part in it.
Together with the United States, 18 countries will boycott the ceremony. The reason for the boycott may be found in the Nobel Prize’s recipient: The Wikileaks Organisation. The announcement of the winner in October had led to a diplomatic earthquake.
Meanwhile, the US government has pulled the stops on media deluge to disparage the laureate. Awarding the prize to ‘criminals’ is paramount to meddling in the internal affairs of the United States, the Foreign Minister said. She added that this will not influence American politics in the least.
“We will not change our convictions just because a bit of wind is ruffling the grass and a few clowns are trying to sway opinion against the United States” a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry announced at a press conference for world media.
The United States brought to bear heavy pressure on foreign diplomats, issuing them with letters demanding that their representatives abstain from taking part in the ceremony or face consequences. In these letters, the awarding of the Peace Nobel Prize to Wikileaks was called ‘obscene’. Countries ignoring the wish of the United States would face serious repercussions.
18 countries have caved in over the threat of military or economical consequences. For the United States these represent ‘the majority of countries’.
Do you think this is political fiction? Let’s rather call it a preview to the ceremony scheduled for 2011. For 2010, it is China that is in the spot I descried. If you want to know what is happening on the 10th of December 2010 just replace the United States with China in the above text and you get the report of what is really happening right now. It’s far from fictitious.
China has been joined in the protest by the usual suspects: Russia, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Ukraine, Columbia, Tunisia, Saudi-Arabia, Pakistan, Serbia, Vietnam, Venezuela, the Philippines, Egypt, and Sudan. It is nice to know that these countries represent the majority among almost 200 nations on the planet. I would rather call it an alliance of bootlickers.
The absence of these stalwart defenders of human rights will be offset by the absence of the laureate, Liu Xiabo, who is imprisoned on trumped up charges, too. The Nobel Prize Committee has decided to leave the laureate’s chair empty in representation of all the countries bent on repressing free speech. This has only happened once before in Nobel history; in 1936, the prize was awarded to the German Carl von Ossietzky. Hitler’s diatribe at the time sounded about the same as what you read above.
If you are not living in either China or the USA, rest assured that the possibility to shine for your home country might come in 2012 when your most prominent ‘criminal’ will receive the prize. As you see, even I bow to American pressure and use the newly political correct form of whistleblower, which is now ‘criminal’.
