    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!

    1.) The Nobel Peace Prize comes from Norway.
    2.) Norway is NOT PART OF THE EU!

    I know most Americans hate Europe and Europeans, but for the love of god get your facts straight before you attack us.

    I had written a big rant ... but its Friday so /shrug

    No ABBA came from Sweden.

    And for the record, the Nobel Peace Prize comes from Oslo, Norway, BUT the rest of them come from Stockholm, Sweden, because Alfred Nobel was a Swede, but the links to Norway for Sweden and the Nobel family was always quite big.
