Den löjeväckande utnämningen av EU som fredspristagare kommer knappast att ge någon glans åt den skamfilade unionen, däremot dras fredspriset och de som utser vilka som ska få det ytterligare i smutsen, och värdet och prestigen av utmärkelsen sänks. Några fler kommentarer om spektaklet.

Diana Johnstone and Jean Bricmont – Proposal: 2013 Nobel Peace Prize to NATOOn the eve of the hundredth anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, what could be more fitting than to award this prestigious Peace Prize to the organization that is truly ready and willing to END ALL WARS!

William Jones – Peace prize for EU? What peace? – “I ask again, where is the peace? Where did the EU create peace? In Syria, in Libya? Tell me

Chris Bambery – ‘European Union no project of peace’ – ”I think we have to say that the European Union is not a project of peace. It’s a project of militarization of Europe. It’s a project for imposing free market measures across Europe

Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey – Nobel Peace Prize: Joke of the Century – ”The only organism voted into place in the EU is the European Parliament which has no executive power and the organism which has executive power, the Commission, is not elected. So how democratic is the European Union?

Michel Chossudovsky – The EU is not a “Person”: Granting the Nobel Prize to the European Union is in Violation of Alfred Nobel’s Will

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize was granted to the European Union (EU) for its relentless contribution to “the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.”
While the EU’s contribution to peace is debatable, the key issue is whether a union of nation states, which constitutes a political, economic, monetary and fiscal entity is an “eligible candidate” for the Peace Prize, in accordance with the mandate of the Norwegian Committee.

The Olympic Games are “granted” to countries. But the Nobel Peace Prize cannot under any stretch of the imagination be granted to a nation-state, let alone a union of nation states.
