They’re going to need a bigger stage for the awards ceremony
The Nobel Peace Prize went to the EU which, as Kevin Binversie reminds us, is busy these days tear-gassing protestors. The EU is being given the award for keeping the peace in Europe (except for that whole Balkans conflict thing, riots in Greece and Spain, wars along Russia’s periphery).
As the EU falls apart, the prize of 8 million kroners will buy a very nice gold watch.
If the Nobel committee really wanted to reward an organization for the relative peace of Europe since World War II, I’m sure President Barack Obama would be happy to accept the award on behalf of General George Patton and the Third Army.
