I think next year they should give it to 'the weather'...

'cos every day last year it either rained or went dark.

Now that's consistency, and it didn't start any wars either...

This is like watching the horseshit surrounding the Oscars where the self-absorbed in Hollywood applaud themselves.

Whata farce.


Tells volumes as to Europe's character.

Peace of the Pie prize.  They got the biggest slice.  Duh.

What is everyones problem?

Get a tie, learn that the power of pursuation (as there is nothing more powerful) and join in.  Is this not the agenda of Tyler(s) here?  Anonimity directing bots that play along with the idea there is an actual market which decides how best to slice the biggest Peace of pie for the sham of an idea these spinless fucks actually are not part of these guys slicing what is valuable up.

Or is this place the den of the GodDamnedMutherFukinNaggerSlave?


Still have not decided as I am wondering if there is a difference between punishment or justice for those on the recieving end of this disproportionate distribution.

Random Hollywood d-bag B: "No. YOUR great"

Agree nope -1004. The Nobel PP has sort of sunk to the level of Time's "Person Of The Year," another pathetic holdover from a different era. As if there are not actual humans risking their lives every day for peace across the globe while nincompoops get awards for doing nothing.

Yup. Comes every other odd year.  Unless it's an 'even' year, in which case it's the other way around.

Doesn't anybody SEE those 12 stones that represent PEACE?!?!?!?

WHAT COUNTRY has 12 stones as a symbol of their unity....

What country wants to be linked to peace while killing everybody hardly?

I was thinking more like the Nobel prize committee giving the Peace prize to itself... ('cause THEY deserve it!)

If we use history as a guide the peace prize is awarded just before the killing starts.

These people are obviously celebrating peace.

The police force is merely providing a contingency for the event of peace overflow.

We live in very dark ages now.

The Nobel prize industry has been discredited for decades.  

But this is the worst.

At peak insanity it must seek "proof" that it is sane. The illusion must be maintained since there is nothing else supporting it other than faith and belief from those who want to be lied to.

If it's any consoloation, just look back at what happened in the years after the same louts awarded Obama the "Peace" prize.  Lock and load Europe.

It only took massive losses for the public to finally "get it" and I still doubt that they really understand the genius behind the private banking system. The race is on between public enlightenment and the central banks printing their debt based money so that they can try and get the patient back to sleep with reruns of Jersey shore and cheap credit.

multiple people in each photo.

Everyone's got something in their hands.

The gentlemen in the middle of each photo are wearing blue.

I can't quite tell in the second photo, but everyone seems to be smiling in the first, so I'm sure....

yeah, but using typical gov reasoning. This how much worse it would be W/O the EU managment. soo, they should give the Nobel Peace prize to Texas for excellence in capital punishment. just think of how many murders they stopped! 

(and no, I'm not against capital punishment, just making the point).

The prize looks like a Paint-By-Numbers Watercolor Kit.

Plenty of yellow for rays of sunshine, blue for blue skies and green for all those, you know, shoots.

Notably absent, however is red to depict all that blood in the streets.

lets see Obama gets peace prize: winds down iraq, continue afghan wars; expands drone program dramatically bombs potential targets at will, agrees with law detaining citizens w/out proof (aka  habeas corpus)....

eurocrats get peace prize; invoke abe lincoln; claim debt is prosperity and riots are peace....

again...eurocivil war

Looks like the prize is a painting kit. So they can create an even rosier picture.

But only after Barroso takes the dildo out of his arse. Twat.
