Geez, these tools are running out of leftists to give this dopey award to, apparently. Now they’re awarding it to a faltering group of nations.
The European Union was awarded the Nobel Peace Price on Friday for “transforming Europe from a continent of war to a continent of peace.”
The award comes as EU countries try to resolve a debt crisis that threatens to plunge the global economy into recession and break up the EU, which coalesced after the Cold War.
As such, the Nobel Prize Committee’s decision can been seen as a political boost for the EU, meant to encourage the nations to stay together during the economic crisis.
So a group of nations mired in crisis have brought peace to the continent? Um, OK, whatever. I guess all those riots in Greece are mostly peaceful.
If they wanted to actually award a country for transforming a continent from war to peace, maybe they could look west and award it to the United States, the country that save Europe over 60 years ago.
