Here it is folks; the best explanation I've seen yet regarding BO's selection as the Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
Some say they selected BO because they are fellow travellers, or socialist comrades in arms. This may be so - can't argue that point. Those scandinavians live under notoriously left-wing socialist governments.
However, as the story of the above link posits, it may be just because the Norwegians are a bunch of panty-waist pacifists. The don't do unto others no matter what they've done to you crowd.
Either way - we'll never see real peacemakers like Reagan, or Churchill, or MacArthur, or Patton, get Nobel's brass ring. It's because these guys were men of truth and action - not dreamers and liars.
