    Re: Is the nobel peace prize a joke?

    if you go around the world,you will find there are many who deserve the nobel peace prize more than those who accept it.like i said my god we gave it to obama,i wouldnt have been mad so much if they had given a prize to missionaries and charity volunteers who go to the most violent and poor regions of the world actually risking their lives to make a difference,but no its more important celebrities recieve it than those who actually do the dirty work.

    Quite right. His cohort Manning is a treasonous weasel. Assuange is merely a treacherous weasel.

    Sorry, I think the vast majority of winners deserved it, and the money given out to further projects or research has done immeasurable good.
    I disagree. Here is my post with the added edit.

    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.
    Yes, I believe it's a joke. They also nominated Al Gore, who I like just fine, but what the hell did he ever do for world peace? Jimmy Carter, arguably the weakest president the USA has ever had... what was his contribution to world peace? He decided not to invade Iran when they took our diplomats hostage, and managed to okay one of the biggest and deadliest failed military rescues ever... and he made it clear that he was against Israel and for Palestine. For that they bestowed a world peace award? Obama? Yeah, after less than a month in office he was a major contributor towards world peace.

    What the hell does an Intergovernmental Climate Change Agency do for world peace? The IAEA? Ridiculous.

    It's a political award, nothing more.

    Nice nationalistic dig there, especially since many of the Americans who've won are on my WTF? list. But way to get in an well-aimed across-the-pond punt.
