There's a guy in Washington who chairs a meeting every Tuesday. At that meeting they pick the names of several people in a far away country to be assassinated. The committee has no jurisdiction in that foreign country, the two countries are not at war and most of the people targeted are civilians. Many other people have been killed in the process although they were not targeted. The man running this killing operation is Barack Obama. Three years ago he won the Nobel Peace prize.
Just to show that this was not a one off, the Nobel Committee has decided to award this year's peace prize to the EU. Thorbjrn Jagland, head of the Oslo-based Nobel Committee,
justified the award by stressing the EU's role in bringing France and Germany
closer together, and by helping strengthen democracy in southern as well as
central and eastern Europe. So the EU gets a prize because Germany hasn't invaded anybody else. The euro has reduced the economies of Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Ireland to rubble and brought their governments under the control of the ECB/Bundesbank without a shot being fired.
And some joker in Norway thinks that is worthy of a prize.
