Obama gets the Nobel Peace Prize

Astonishing news this morning: President Obama awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

After only nine months in office President Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The thing is, Obama doesn't seem to have done very much about peace in those nine months. He's still fighting two wars, one in Iraq and the other in Afghanistan. If this is services to peace then what would be not peace?

Essentially, the committee has decided that because he's been making nice words about America now going to act multilaterally, rather than independently, then they'd give him the prize.

The Peace Prize is always the most politically motivated of all of the prizes and this year seems to be no different.
