    Why does being American have anything to do with commenting on the Nobel peace prize?

    because I feel like a lot of Americans feel like that the Nobel peace prize is there to appease Americans and when they give it to someone that is not liked or respected in America then a lot of commentators brand the award as a joke.

    It certainly has become a joke in the past decades. The nominees, the winners... give me a break. Assuange, the treasonous weasel, was actually nominated!

    Total joke, worthy only of ridicule and derision. Several times the prize has actually been awarded to some global organization, like the UN Peacekeeping Forces, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations...

    I could go on. It's an international back-slapping award.

    People have opinions and love to complain I do not think it is an exclusively American thing.

    Assange, Arafat, Obama...that's, what, .08% of all winners? All this slamming the Nobel Prize Committee, based on a number winners you disagree that with you could count on one hand?

    Sorry, I think the vast majority of winners deserved it, and the money given out to further projects or research has done immeasurable good.

    A little nit to pick, as Assange isn't an American citizen it's not really accurate to call him treasonous, but he is a douche I'll give you that.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
