"Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future."

He was less than nine months in office. He was learning his trade. His crimes of war, against humanity, and genocide were just beginning. His war cabinet assured it. One observer called it a "kettle of hawks." 

Neocons said McCain couldn't have chosen better. He'll continue where Bush left off. He did that and more. He's still at it. Maybe he'll become a double honoree. 

Nobel Committee members reward warriors. They deplore peace. Their awards show what they value most. It reflects Alfred Nobel's legacy.

He got rich inventing dynamite and manufacturing weapons. He was a 19th century war profiteer. Late in life he reinvented himself. He established awards bearing his name. 

One was for peace he deplored. His business depended on war. There was plenty around then. There's more than ever now. Nobel's legacy legitimizes wars and leaders who wage them. 

Honoring EU nations shouldn't surprise. They're waging hot wars and financial ones on humanity. Committee members recognized their achievement. Perhaps they'll be encouraged to do more.
