    The prize, worth $1.2 million (747 thousand pounds), will be presented in Oslo on December 10. The decision by the five-member panel, led by Jagland who is also Secretary-General of the Council of Europe, was unanimous.

    The EU won from a field of 231 candidates including Russian dissidents and religious leaders working for Muslim-Christian reconciliation.....snip~

    I can't believe these dip-sticks gave themselves the award. What a bunch of Morons!
    The Nobel Peace prize has become just a joke.

    Well, that's not a point.

    It has been for a while. This is not the most surprising recipient. That Henry Kissinger should have been made a Nobel peace laureate made the award a joke back in 1973.

    I think you helped the other side by pointing out that pretty much no one has any idea who got it between 'US voters' and 'EU'.

    No, I think that makes a point that these people aren't remotely interested in the NPP or the merits of those people who win it. They just want to make some petty, partisan scoring point and probably have a xenophobic, anti-European dig at the same time.

    If the EU (side: not a person, right?) is gonna follow Obama's lead, I guess it's time to get back to stealth drone bombing someone. Look out Iran, Euros won the NPP and you know what Obama did.



    Anyway, now objects (the EU) can win the NPP. Great. Who gets the million? Probably Greece.
