First Obama. Then the EU. Odds are looking good that NZ might scoop us up one of these nobel peace prizes sooner or later.

Geir Lundestad, the Nobel committee secretary, has long wanted to give the EU the peace prize on the basis of post-war Franco-German reconciliation, because it “helped to consolidate democracy in Southern Europe” after the end of fascist regimes in Spain and Portugal and for its role in helping the transition in eastern Europe after the collapse of Communism.


And people still have a problem with it?

Fully deserved at some point but the only reason I can see for them giving it now is as encouragement to keep it together. Which is strange coming from Norwegians but there you go

Winning the Nobel Peace Prize as a Union of countries is worth absolutely nothing. It changes nothing and is nothing but a pat on the back for the politicians to make them think they're doing a good job.

They are not.

Yes - the EU did deserve it and the committee regretted never giving it to them.

But still, timing isn't exactly great here is it... It's like patting half the member states on the back for being on the verge of financial collapse.

EDIT: Used patting back analogy right after Coreysmonster, now look silly Ah well, You and your great work-ethic brethren can keep it for actually sustaining the EU in the last year.

Ah, but your point about the timing is excellent.

The people who in post-WWII Europe built everything up again and restored relations between the warring countries, THOSE people were the real heroes. They are the ones who deserved the prize. The Europe of back then proved to be strong, resourceful and commited to peace.

The Europe of today? Give me a break.

That explains everything.

Also, did you know there's no Nobel Prize in economics?

It's Sveriges Riksbanks pris till minne av Alfred Nobel, or something along those lines.

Which roughly translates to Swedens National Bank's Prize in memory of Alfred Nobel.

They are not.

It's recognition for the efforts of a group of people to bring economic stability to a war torn continent. Not only did they set groundwork for greater economic integration allowing for easier trade within Europe, they then went further and put in place mechanisms to ensure that member states respected the fundamental rights of their people.

It's not a pat on the back for the politicians today, it's recognition of the organisation's achievements. If it was intended for individuals, they'd give it to individuals.

Anyone who thinks they're congratulating the current MEPs for the achievements of the EU needs their heads checking.

I forgot that the peace prize was an annual award given only on the basis of people's actions in the previous calendar year.

There's a difference between what it's meant for and how it's perceived. Everybody knows that this is for Europe's work after WWII, the article said so itself, it's the timing that is so ridiculous.

Jeez, stop being so anal.

It's probably (indeed, the statement said it was) meant as a reminder of all that important work - with all the ****ery going on with the EU these days, it gets buried easily.

Things wouldn't have turned out the same without direct US involvement. War torn economies and massive Soviet influence over the region would have guaranteed a different outcome. I think the US is due its share of credit and a piece of that "prize".

I think the Dutch should get the peace price. We didn't participate with World War 1 and we surrendered our country almost immediately in world war 2.

We didn't even fight in Yugoslavia >.>
