    Alfred Bernhard Nobel was a Swedish chemist, engineer, innovator, armaments manufacturer and the inventor of dynamite. He owned Bofors, a major armaments manufacturer, which he had redirected from its previous role as an iron and steel mill. In his last will, he used his enormous fortune to institute the Nobel Prizes (from the Wikipedia).

    My understanding is that Alfred Nobel believed that the new explosive, compared to black powder, was so powerful that it would be so terrible in war that mankind would live in peace. Then 1914 happened.

    Meanwhile, the number of nations who possess or are developing nuclear weapons continues to grow.

    All over the world, radical Muslims are plotting ways to destroy the United States.

    IMO, The person who gets Iran and North Korea to get rid of their nuclear technology should be awarded the Nobel Prize.

    IMO, the US military has brought more peace to the world than any person or force in the history of the world. Yet we were mocked during the Viet Nam war and many of the individuals who mocked the military, or refused to serve, ended up in high government positions.

    We sure live in a peaceful world, don't we?

    He has done nothing to earn it. The news said that he is getting it for what he is about to do in the nuc war area. It is not being given for something he HAS done but for something he they hope WILL do. BS BS BS BS BS.

    When my son told me this morning that Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize, I kept waiting for the punch line to fall.

    Turns out it was not a joke, but to me it is.

    And a lame joke at that.

    He has not done anything.

    This is just politics, pure and simple.

    He does not deserve this.

    They have cheapened the Nobel Prize.

    It used to mean something and now it doesn't.

    Hauxfan!

    And don't forget Yassar Afafat. Awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 1994, just nine years after members of the PLO threw Leon Klinghoffer off his wheelchair to his death in the ocean.

    Obama's becoming "Jimmy Carter" faster than Jimmy Carter.

    What great company he’s in... Carter, Arafat, Gore.

    Didn't the demo-socialist heartthrob Che` get one? You know, Che`? If not, maybe they can get him one posthumously.

    I guess that is why he was holding off on giving the General the 40,000 troops he requested. HMB

    It is sad that the Nobel prize has come to mean so little. I wonder what Alfred would say if he were alive to see it.

    He should also add the World Wrestling Federation Championship Belt to his awards. After all, he is impossible to pin down, follows the scripted instructions set down by others, puts on a heck of good show and really doesn't do anything beneficial except rant, rave and bear his chest for the camera while getting a bunch of people cheering for him.
