In Putin's Russia, war is peace!
 
2014-03-05 09:57:12 AM  
He deserves it more than Obama.

Let's not forget that Obama was looking for every excuse to go to war with Syria.  He thought he had it with the chemical weapons issue.  Who came in and solved the problem?  Putin.
 
2014-03-05 09:57:16 AM  
He is peacefully annexing another country. What's the problem?
 
2014-03-05 09:57:17 AM  
He'll fit in with the crowd.
 
2014-03-05 09:57:49 AM  
It's a joke award any how.  Hell Obama got one for doing jack shiat.
 
2014-03-05 09:57:55 AM  
In before someone compares it to Obama getting a Nobel.

My understanding is that the Nobel committee takes nominations from pretty much anywhere, so if you wanted to troll them you could easily nominate Kim Jong Un or Sarah Palin or anybody, just for shiats and giggles.

Make that 5 Ukrainian headlines in the past hour.

Fark needs a Ukraine tag.

Look, if you don't start a war or three, how the hell are you going to understand the true value of peace?

We're still pretending that silly ceremony means something?

Not gonna provide a link, but this is real and easily Googled if you care to look for it:
LEESBURG, Va., Feb. 1 -- Landmark Legal Foundation today nominated nationally syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
 
2014-03-05 10:07:56 AM  
Maybe they should rename it the rest in peace prize.

It's like calling yourself "Frontrunner for Next Pope".
 
2014-03-05 10:08:53 AM  
You know who else got nominated for the Peace Prize? (No, not Fartbongo. Go away.)

If so, then you'll realize Vlad won't get it, that there is nothing to see here and you really ought to move along. Putin was one out of 278 entries.

Clearly the news is from the Kremlin, though, not Oslo---the list of nominees is kept confidential for 50 years.

BiffDangler: Let's not forget that Obama was looking for every excuse to go to war with Syria.


And that's why he told the Republican Congress to vote on it first, instead of taking executive action to strike Syria like he did in Libya.
 
2014-03-05 10:13:15 AM  
heck, after this he might have increased his chances of winning it!

Yep, nominations mean nothing. One of the quirks of the process is that social science professors can make peace-prize nominations. So every once in a while I'll get some sort of solicitation to nominate so-and-so for the prize. It's ALWAYS a scumbag. The worst at solicitation was Albert Fujimori. When he was dictator of Peru in the 90s I'd get phone calls and emails about him every year.

But, hey, if any of you out there would like to be nominated I can send you my paypal information.

Both sides of the aisle were for bombing the shiat out of brown people in Syria.  Putin actually stopped the engagement by brokering the deal to inspect chemical weapons.  He did this because he doesn't want US ships anywhere near the Black Sea.
 
2014-03-05 10:16:22 AM  
Meh, he's in good company.
 
2014-03-05 10:27:17 AM  
It's almost as if the Nobel Peace Prize is a joke or something.
 
2014-03-05 10:41:00 AM  
Like that "prize" means anything anymore..

What are your rates?

I would love to be able to put down "Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize" on my resume as a Computer Engineer.

I too might be interested in this process. If I get an official, notarized letter that I have been nominated.

What's not to mock? Did you ever see the list of people Obama "beat" for that Nobel Prize?

3/10. You'll get some bites, but it's a little too "black is white" to be really good work.

That's going to look great on my resume, alongside my mail-order ordination, my life experience credit PhD, and my Time Person of the Year award (2006).

Don't we have ships in the Black Sea now?
 
2014-03-05 11:27:14 AM  
You know who ELSE was up for a peace prize the year he started a war?
 
2014-03-05 11:36:33 AM  
Any Professor at any University can nominate people for any Nobel Prize.
The committee gets thousands of nominations every year, and gives no information as to which they're considering.
In short NOMINATIONS HAVE NO MEANING FOR THE NOBEL PRIZES if you see someone crowing about being a Nobel-nominated something, that's a telltale sign that they a duplicitous scumbag.

zimbomba63: Don't we have ships in the Black Sea now?


Not a fleet. I think  maybe one ship was there during the olympics, and might still be there.  The US maybe trying to send more now.

No, and neither have you. The Nobel committee does not publish the names.

In that case, it was an honor just being nominated.

Just showing it to him will prove to him that it was a gift to him and it will be taken. Perhaps he will make you a replacement if it means so much.

They do not publish names, but the list of nominees is pretty much common knowledge. I assume you knew that when you wrote this and were just trying to defend Obama. Gets harder and harder doesn't it?

Putin doesn't care abput Nobel Prize, he seeks Chernobel Prize

So, did you already chang Vsia Vlast' Sovetam to Visa Vlast' Sosediam?
 
2014-03-05 09:58:30 PM  
This is the same peace prize named for the guy who invented dynamite, right?
