Munitions millionaire Nobel gave the selection of his "Peace" prize to a committee chosen by the Norwegian parliament. Norway, a proud member of NATO has always been in
the orbit of Washington/London and English is their second language. They
were one of the first to be occupied by Nazi Germany. Several of their
elites were pro-Nazi. Ibsen was Norwegian, and Grieg. And they got their
independence peacefully from Sweden. A model country?
Its not the General Assembly of the UN that anoints the "Peace" winner. Its a elite group of comfortable Norwegians with their Norwegian sensibilites and biases.
Again this year its an English-speaking USA/UK-educated dissident from a country (Iran, Myanmar, China) that's not (yet) part of the Empire. Last year they gave Obama a chance to give a speech justifying US wars, past, present and future. And, of course, he said war is terrible.
