What is the big deal? Why the surprise?

    You know the committee had to give The One the Peace Prize - the only question was when. Since it is now apparent that he's going to be subpar at best and beat out Carter at worst, the best time to give him the prize is now. It only incurs additional ridiculousness down the road.

    And don't give me any blather about past winners and historic awards. Modern winners of the Nobel Peace Prize are not even a shadow of former winners. Even more telling, look at some who did not win, such as Mahatma Gandhi. Arafat wins one? A "peace" prize for the International Atomic Energy Agency (idly standing by while new nations become nuclear powers) and another for Al Gore for Glowbull Warmening, but none for Ghandi?

    LOL. Only ignorant blithering idiots put any stock at all in this award.

    EDIT: And what about Corazon Aquino? More deserving of the award than Arafat, Algore, Obama and the IAEA put together.
  2. It doesn't even occur to these moronic traitors to be proud of their own country.
  3. If Mahatma Gandhi would have been leading the Allies instead of Roosevelt and Churchill in World War II we would all be saluting Heil Hitler and singing the Horst Wessel anthem.

    During World War II, Mahatma Gandhi penned an open letter to the British people, urging them to surrender to the Nazis. Later, when the extent of the Holocaust was known, he criticized Jews who had tried to escape or fight for their lives as they did in Warsaw and Treblinka. “The Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife,” he said. “They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.” “Collective suicide,” he told his biographer, “would have been heroism.”

    Standard bullshit by Bernie. One can have a better understanding of Ghandi's views on Jews and Arabs here: http://www.countercurrents.org/pa-gandhi170903.htm

    What Bernie considers anti-Jewish, was in fact anti-Zionist:

    ''And now a word to the Jews in Palestine. I have no doubt that they are going about it in the wrong way. The Palestine of the Biblical conception is not a geographical tract. It is in their hearts. But if they must look to the
    Palestine of geography as their national home, it is wrong to enter it under the shadow of the British gun. A religious act cannot be performed with the aid of the bayonet or the bomb. They can settle in Palestine only by the
    goodwill of the Arabs. They should seek to convert the Arab heart.''
  5. Given the world we live in it's really no surprise that Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. After all, it's a T-Ball nation we have created. No scores are kept, everyone makes the team, everyone plays regardless of skill and best of all, everyone gets a trophy at the end of the year. Apparently, T-ball has higher standards than the Nobel committee. At least they wait till the end of the year to give the trophies to all the "winners". Obama got his right up front.

    Sour grapes.

    If they give Obama the Peace Prize now, what are they going to give him when he’s a failed ex-president criticizing America and Israel?
  8. Ricter


    "If"? Is the committee reconsidering?
  9. Reagan saved hundreds of millions of Europeans from communist tyranny. NO PEACE PRIZE

    Bush saved 30 million iraqis from the clutches of Saddam. NO PEACE PRIZE.

    fuck this peace prize bs. It is only awarded to losers
