Sick-making hypocracy in Oslo, Norway on 10 December 2012

Thinking people across our war-torn planet will have reached for their sick-bags on learning that the European Union had received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway on 10 December 2012. What bigger insult could there have been to the memory of peace maker Alfred Nobel than this travesty? It was said that when the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Henry Kissinger that satire had lost its meaning. Many of us felt the same way when Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace prize in 2009 while he was engaging in two wars and preparing more. There was a big demonstration in Oslo on the day that he received the Peace Prize and gave a very eloquent though deceitful speech.

As so often, Democracy Now gave a good account of 10 December 2012 and you might like to view this video from that worthwile US radio/tv station.
