    As for the point im not sure you would have to ask Pete EU. I imagine it has something to do with countries giving themselves titles etc.
    Okay, LOL, fair enough. But that is not my point. The point I want to make is that the aware USED to go to people who actually did something to deserve the PEACE prize. Now, it seems more like the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks. The award has become a joke, and that has NOTHING to do with partisanship.

    Mmmm, I don't think so. I'm sure there are PLENTY of people, groups, etc. more deserving of the award. Maybe you're just cynical.

    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 EU has no control over the Nobel prize juries. The peace prize is decided by the Norwegian Nobel committee. You are probably unaware that Norway is not a part of the EU.

    The fact of 55 years of peace between the nations of the EU is an achievement unimaginable just 70 years ago. I think that's an accomplishment worth recognising.

    Personally, I think Easter Island got shafted.

    But listening to the news these days, it seems like Europe could use the money.

    OK, let's put the Giants up against the best American football team from anywhere else. Let's even throw in the best CFL team (even though the rules are slightly different.)
