I feel bad for him. He has been very dignified in his response to this. He understands that he doesn't deserve this price and has come out with a good response.

The war doesn't have anything with winning or not winning a nobel peace prize. Its usually a major contribution to society that changes the lives of many people for the better that get these things.

How he beat out the other entrants this year, will probably be a major conspiracy theory for a long long time, considering he really hasn't done much of anything for humanity.

Well...

A person cannot nominate themselves for the prize. It has to come from someone else. For the Peace Prize this includes these groups -
1. Members of national assemblies and governments of states;
2. Members of international courts;
3. University rectors; professors of social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology; directors of peace research institutes and foreign policy institutes;
4. Persons who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize;
5. Board members of organizations who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize;
6. Active and former members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; (proposals by members of the Committee to be submitted no later than at the first meeting of the Committee after February 1);
7. Former advisers appointed by the Norwegian Nobel Institute.

The nomination process is here:
http://nobelprize.org/nomination/peace/process.html

The press release is here:
http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/p...009/press.html

We'll see if he lives up to the honor or not. Only history will be able to tell on that.

Well he sits and signs orders for air strikes on Pakistan's border and Afghanistan... so if for some stupid reason a civilian dies... where is peace attained?

TIME, CNN, NYT have a poll (and he's losing in all of them)

This thread (original thread and post) is an (obvious) example of what is wrong with the world.

.... a lot of people who are never going to have the credentials, experience, education and training to run for high public office just being negative, ugly and disgraceful toward someone who does have the credentials, experience, education, background (and the votes!) to be elected leader of the world's largest economy.

This type of behavior is no different than a big, fat, guy with a big beer belly, sitting in front of his TV, with bags of used potato chips and empty beer cans on the floor, burping and screaming negative comments to a pro footballer footballer in fine shape, playing the game to the best of his ability.

Instead of hurling all the negative insults at someone with an obvious high(er) social and political status (and who was honored by the Nobel committee), go work on your forums and do something constructive.....

Hate does nothing to improve the world.

Instead of replying without knowledge (and hurling negative comments at others), do your homework.......

Inside the Nobel decision

CNN's Jonathan Mann tells Michael Holmes how the Nobel Committee chooses each year's winner.
