The Prize is a joke.

EU was awarded the prize this year, no doubt for its fine accomplishments in the Slavic states towards preventing strife.

Ah yes, Al "enormous carbon footprint but shares in alternative energy" Gore won it for making a movie.

Barry and Dhimmi Carter make a nice pair of political chaps from the left end of the spectrum I suppose.

Kissinger, Roosevelt, De Luc, Truman etc. did a lot towards downsizing arms and avoiding wars.

Yasser Arafat was a big proponent of non-violence ahead of 12-times-nominated-never-won Gandhi of course who preferred village level socio-economic governance system of self sufficiency than internationalism.

Gorbachev's award can of course be shared with Reagan and a bunch of retired Warsaw Pact and NATO Generals!
