European Union Awarded Nobel Prize
The Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee announced that the 2012 Peace Prize will be awarded to the European Union. This is probably the straw that will break the camel’s back in terms of diminishing the credibility of this international award. The European Union is rife with the increasing popularity of Neo-Nazi movements and rising anti-Semitism as well as increased racial tensions to boot.
European Union governments are suffering from crushing debt where people are protesting any measures to scale back social welfare benefits that contributed to the region’s debt problems to begin with.
The Nobel Committee explains that the reason for the award was that the EU transformed Europe from a continent of wars to a continent of peace. However, the committee obviously chose to ignore the internal strife in countries like Greece, Germany, and Spain which the EU has done little to nothing to halt as well as the continent’s haphazard immigration policies.
This coming from the same body that also awarded Al Gore and Barack Obama Nobel Prizes as well.
