#1 If that's the criteria, it should have gone to the USA and Canada, as they haven't had a war for 200 years, and even then it wasn't much of a war.

I thought they would give the peace prize to Khomenei or maybe to Islam.

#5 Next time, the committee can give ITSELF the prize, for, you know, working for peace 'n stuff.
Thereby permanently pegging the irony meter, while putting up a sign that says "By the way, we're useless, but we're still the center of the universe".
What you have here is an illustration of how european political academics think. In Technicolor.

#6 Norwegians sensibly decided not to join the EU...

Obviously the Nobel committee has been taken over by leftist idiots (as all sources of un-earned money seem to).

#8 Regarding the Nobel Peace Prize and the Champ:

"He's the first Nobel Peace Prize winner with a kill list."

#10 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to European Union

-about as meaningful as giving an end of season medal to every kid on the second to last place soccer team.

#12 Sure.You can thank us later for being your muscle so the Soviets didn't crush you like bugs and you could do...whatever it is you supposedly did.

#13 At first I thought wait, the EU hasn't killed enough people. Then I thought damn, maybe these guys know something I don't...

#16 ask any Austrian how much of their GDP was gone toward their military or NATO in the past 60 years.

#17 tu3031, we gave them the breathing room to become Russia on their own schedule. If that wasn't bad enough a couple of years ago they decided pakistan was a better model and the switch has been jarring to say the least.

#18 So the guy with the "charisma of a damp rag" (Nigel Farage)is going to collect the Nobel Prize.

Sounds about right to me.

#20 This prize should have gone to Malala Yousufzai, the young girl shot by the Taliban. Too bad the Nobel committee is more interested in self pleasurement.

#21 If anyone should get a prize for sixty plus years of peace in Europe, it should be the US military for keeping the Russians out and the Germans down.

#22 When I was serving in the Bundeswehr, I didn't have the impression that our US friends were here to keep us down.

As a matter of fact their presence was pretty uplifting.

#24 Let's hope that no war breaks out over the question who will collect the prize.
