A rising China has sufficient confidence and tolerance to face the situation. Liu winning the Nobel Peace Prize will serve as after-dinner jokes for some Chinese.
Acting against the will of Alfred Nobel
China Daily , 10/24/10

Norwegian jurist and writer Fredrik S. Heffermehl concludes in his new book The Nobel Peace Prize: What Nobel Really Wanted that the selection of more than half of the peace prize winners has disregarded what Nobel first intended and run counter to his will. He said Nobel established the prize for "the champions of peace" to support their efforts at disarmament and peace movement rather than for the broadened conception of "peace" best suited to Nobel committee's political needs. When the award was presented to Liu Xiaobao, Mr Heffermehl reiterated his conclusion that Liu is not the "peace fighter" in Nobel's will and it is inappropriate to give him the award.

The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was given to an Obama that ordered the bombing of Pakistan to begin within hours of his inauguration and subscribes to the idea that America can bomb anyone's home, anywhere, if it has information that a violent enemy of the United States is inside.  Did the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize go to Liu Xiaobo for "bombing' China? Were the five members of the jury committee aware of Liu's alleged connection with the The National Endowment for Democracy , a U.S. organization providing cash grants funded by the U.S. Congress that has financed many coups? Did they know of Liu's rather crude, insulting and prejudiced public pronouncements that sounded at best improper, if not criminal, then certainly not peaceful.

Was there also a pro-capitalist motivation in awarding the 2010 Nobel Prize for Literature to Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa, who In 1990 was a right-leaning free-market candidate for president, opposing ongoing Peruvian nationalizations.  Vargas Llosa has denounced popular presidents in Latin America who are fighting Yankee imperialism, namely, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Evo Morales of Bolivia, and the president of the Peruvian Nationalist Party, Ollanta Humala for promoting racism - "Indian against Spanish."
Okay, 'what else in new', was the humorous tone taken by Evo Morales yesterday, speaking in Cancun, when asked about Vargas Llosa's verbal assault and his winning the Nobel Prize. He shrugged his shoulders, "What kind of people are receiving the Nobel awards."
