    This is the biggest practical joke made with the Nobel after Obama got it. Compared to EU, even Obama seems a more deserving candidate.

    That is a good one for Riply's Believe it or Not!

    But then when the Prize Money is shared by the EU, it will help stabilise their economy immensely I presume!

    I would like to nominate the Nobel Prize Committee for an International Humanitarian and Good Samaritan Prize to recompense their financial loss in giving this Prize to the EU.

    Europe was once a continent (?) of War. I think they deserved a Nobel for what they did in last 60+ years by not contributing to disrupt World Peace :p

    When thekedar of non-violence doesn't get peace prize and people engaged in war gets it then you know its full of shit.

    it is nothing but extension of west foreign policy.

    well atleast they didn't give the prize to fsa/terrorists in syria :yey:

    This kind of moral support will not help crisis-hit european economies.

    What they need is young population and more money from rich lenders in other parts of the world.

    True ! every time European countries surprised market and come up with new targets to meet.

    They have done a commendable Job.

    In a democracy, How difficult it is to get a scheme passed which is not favorable for individual but good for whole economy , can be understood by recent policy paralysis of UPA government.

    When every regional party demanding their own share , It is very very difficult to use belt tightening measures.

    They need to do the same for Kim Jong-il too, posthumously.

    Nobel prizes should go to individuals, in my opinion.

    The Nobel Peace Prize has always been a joke. They should just scrap it.

    O c'on there has been no war Inside Europe for past 60 years.
    think of prior 500 years in every major war almost exclusively involved at least one EU nation no matter what location of the earth u pick.
    but yeah awarding EU nobel prize is still stupid
