/ EU Wins Nobel Peace Prize
I agree, well done us.
my god....you're right:
Congratulations to Germany for going 67 years without starting a war, and for achieving it's goal of European domination through peaceful means
Aye, I guess it's beena bad year for peace. Not saying the EU doesn't do good work and advance the cause of international cooperation but I think awarding it this now smacks of desperation.
I presume they thought a Nobel Prize for Economics would push the joke too far?
A good choice.
Whatever else you might think of it, the existence of the EU makes another european war after centuries of regular conflict almost unthinkable. To me this, in itself, justifies its existence.
Cool! When do I get my prize?

Because no one can afford it? ;-)
Actually invading a European country seems a bit pointless when you can just wander across the border.
i agree, and i'm surprised it hasn't been given the prize before now, given some of of the recent winners
