So, Barack Hussein Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize? In recent years, the Nobel Peace Prize has been so highly politicized and devalued that it's virtually worthless. For heaven's sake - it's even been awarded to Al Gore!
There is no real peace in the world right now. North Korea continues to rattle its sabers, Iran continues to defy and threaten the world, the struggle intensifies in Afghanistan, etc., etc., etc.
I have a novel idea: why not award prizes for actual achievements and not just for effort and intent. What a concept!
