    Let see they Give Obama a Nobel Prize for being the Peace President, despite him droppin a bomb on sombody somewhere at all times. Now they give the award to a bunch of Countries for promoting peace? Did they forget the French and Brits play with Libya? What about the French in the Ivory Coast with the Brits? Have they actually forgotten history........................................... ....AGAIN!

    Re: E.U. Wins Nobel Peace Prize.....

    The sheer arrogance exhibited in this thread is astounding. Despite all the facts to the contrary, everybody in this thread are whining about how the Europeans awarded themselves an award. Amazing. Yeah, I get all the idiocy of the Nobel prize nowadays, but the thread goes downhill even further. Despite what a good many posters see a good in misnaming the entire thread (as Pete pointed out, Norway is not in the EU yet people amazingly forgot this and keeps on lamenting how it's Euro-centric).
    The Nobel Peace Prize is a joke. I get it. What I have a problem with is the pure hypocrisy of the posters here. Sure the Europeans gave themselves an award. The Americans don't? The Koreans don't? What country doesn't? All the posters here are acting like only that the Goddamned Europeans are doing it again.

    Relax dude. The peace prize is a joke, I'm just having fun. The peace and literature prizes are nothing but a forum for leftist Europeans to vent their ideologies.
    The peace prize is only a joke to warmongers... which does explain why the US right hates the Nobel Peace prize.

    They gave the prize to Obama before he had even spent one day as president. That says everything we need to know, right there.
    Ahh so that is what made "it a joke" in your eyes. Guess when an American does not win stuff, then it is always " a joke". Talk about arrogance.

    You're totally confused. You're thinking of the World Series (Baseball). Football has the Super Bowl - which has nothing to do with the world - it is mostly an American sport (as is baseball - but we have cool games - what can we say?).

    Holy crap!!! This is another one of the most stupid comments I've ever read here. Maybe if the Nobel Peace prize was worthy of respect, more people would have respect for it. Unfortunately, it is not, and I am not a right-wing warmonger.

    And yet another ridiculous comment. Why am I not surprised?

    How audaciously tacky.

    I LOL'd.
    Norway is not part of the EU.

    Also, Obama got the Nobel Peace prize a few years ago and has done nothing to deserve it. Cut it out.

    they do say World champions when you win the Super bowl or the world series. I think that is what Pete EU was trying to say
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
