Don't worry. Mr. Jagland will give the Peace Prize to himself this year.

He negotiated a deal to purge Syria of Chemical Weapons. --A bit more than Barack Obama did when he got the Peace prize in 2009.

Of course, but at the same time, The Nobel Peace prize isn't really the meaningful prize that it once was.

The prize is obviously well past its relevancy

Why not? If they can give the Peace Prize to Yassar Arrafat then why not to Putin?

I find this disgusting considering he is homophobic, and the anti-homophobic laws he has put in.

And the EU.

Why don't they just give a posthumous one to Hitler?

Hitler was once named Time's Man of the Year.
Although Nobel Prizes are not awarded post-humously. That is why Gandhi never got one.

Man of the Year is not a title of praise. It is a title of importance.
