So Internet gets nominated for the Nobel Peace Price for aiding Peace by encouraging communication. I am fully against this.

IMO, Internet does encourage communication - But it does not aid peace. Its quite the opposite in may ways...Terrorists overseas converse about their "Glorius Strategies" through the internet - Which is the most convinient way to do so.

We see small children becoming terrorists and declaring them in videos posted through out the net - And you call that "Aiding Peace".

Humour me more...Apart from the alarming growth of Terrorism, Cyber crime has become dominant in the world too...Hackers have hunted down various government websites, that has led to threats to the National Security. Illegal transactions are made (A huge aid to Terrorism), information of great importance has been passed to the wrong hands everyday...So people, why even think of Internet when it comes to the Peace Prize?

Maybe Nobel's real status has become inexistent!

The Nobel Peace Prize ceased to be a legitimate award when they decided to give it to terrorists responsible for the murder of civilians (Arafat), Marxist guerrillas responsible for the mass murder of civilians (Mandela), the largest failure in world history (the UN), people who make fictional movies (Al Gore), military dictators (Kim Dae-Jung) and people who have done absolutely nothing in their entire lives (Barak Obama).

In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet and say to us, 'Make us your slaves, but feed us.'

I totally agree with it...Nowadays you just need to that popular to get the Nobel award. A day will come when Osama Bin Laden will be given the Nobel prize...

Unlike all of the other Nobel Prizes, the Peace Prize is given by the Norwegian Parliament.

It is entirely political, given by a political body, to people who fit their political views.

The rest, however, are given by an international, nonpartisan, board made up of past laureates and experts in the field. So the science prize is given by scientists, the literature prize is given by writers.

Yet the "peace" prize is given by some guy the Norwegians elected to parliament.

I know that...But it really is a pity that they have trashed it as of today.

I only support the people who become laureates by their contribution in fields like Science, Literature, Economics, etc...And I am totally against the formula they adopt to give away the peace prize!

I would like to see a day where the Nobel Peace Prize goes to a person who peacefully protests and thus resolves a conflict.

Of course, speaking against anything is more likely to earn a night in a prison cell than an award.

Nobel Committee and the UN-the biggest farces in human history. they'll give the Nobel Peace prize to even a dog if it wagged its tail the right way and infront of the right people. and yes...Dhampy is absolutely right. i agree.

I giggled a little bit. Because peaceful protest doesn't even have an effect on a spat between two people.

If the award were given by legitimate body and not a parliament, it would have recognized long ago that the greatest force for peace in the last seventy years has been nuclear weapons.

The 20th Century before nuclear weapons: 100 million dead in two world wars.
The 20th Century before nuclear weapons: Zero dead in world wars, despite everyone itching for a third.
