Nobel Peace Prize
    #11216844 - 10/09/09 07:45 PM (8 years, 5 months ago)

Ok.... I took a quick look at wiki.

And, just some food for thought of those planning to work this up into something that matters.....


..... it was discovered that Adolf Hitler was nominated in 1939 by Erik Brandt, a member of the Swedish Parliament. Brandt retracted the nomination after a few days.[11] Other infamous nominees included Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini.


Another criticism of the peace-prize are the notable omissions, namely the failure to award individuals with widely recognized contributions to peace. The list includes Mahatma Gandhi, Corazon Aquino, Pope John XXIII, Pope John Paul II, Dorothy Day, César Chávez, Oscar Romero, Jose Figueres Ferrer, Steve Biko, Raphael Lemkin, Abdul Sattar Edhi and Irena Sendler


Also, Al Gore has won it.... And so has the UN.....

Basically, it is a few norwegians who randomly pick someone to recieve it..... it doesnt even have to be unanimous vote. And at one time, at least one of those norwegians thought HITLER was a good choice....... and at another time.... GHANDI was a bad choice........

So, Wether we are Obama lovers or haters........ Can we all just agree not to make that big of a deal about it?
