Obscure anti-nuclear NGO wins Nobel peace prize

The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced Friday that the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) had won this year’s Nobel peace prize for its dedication to the total abolition of all nuclear weaponry in the world. A small organization with an annual budget of $1 million, wins roughly the same amount in prize money.

    Interesting.
    The ignorance of this is beautiful. The weapons development that has proved to be the single biggest deterrent to war between major powers, and the ignorant who want to abolish its use.
    They are the morons that are handed the Nobel Peace prize? Ok, well, Araft won the peace prize, so why am i surprised.

    To wit, we set a record every year. Since 1945, every single year has seen a decline in: Amount of declared and undeclared wars being fought. Decline in amount of people dying in or as a result of conflicts. This trend has continued unabated since 1945.
    In 1985 we started setting the record, for the longest period on earth where amor powers abutting one another have not gone to war. We extend this record every year.
    This NGO, like so many other ‘do-gooders’ are inherently dangerous. The one thing far more destructive than nuclear weapons is ignorance. And considering the sum knowledge of mankind sits in everyones back pocket, ignorance is a choice.

    After having given Barak Obama the peace prize, . . . I gave up on the intelligence, common sense, ideology, and possibly even the humanity of those giving out the prizes. I’m thinking that a bunch of squirrel monkeys could probably do a better job.
