International Politics: Random Topics Thread


Okay, I'm going to use this thread to post non-US political news, commentary, etc.

Feel free to post anything not US related.

European stuff is fine.

the truth may vary

Something I find really disappointing in this world is that a lot of people who win the noble Peace prize end up not being too "peaceful" after winning.

I can think of other examples too.

Also, a literal MB Islamist who got the prize

I think the Nobel peace prize should only be given to dead people. It's the only way to make sure they don't f* things up.

Some living people show potential. But with life things happen, people turn from their peaceful ways and like you said they end up messing it up. I think people should show a history of peacefulness behavior in order to receive the Peace Prize.
