Globalist EU receives Nobel

The globalist European Union received the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 on Monday in Oslo, Norway. President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso and President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz received the award from the Nobel Committee chairman. The decision to award the Nobel Peace Prize to the EU has come with a lot of controversy. Many believe that the EU shouldn't have received the award in light of all the political problems and economic instability in Europe today. They also believe that the Nobel awards have now been "cheapened" because of the awarding of the peace prize to the EU.

The EU maintains that it has prevented war and conflict on the European continent since the end of the Second World War. Opponents believe that the awarding comes at a time when the EU is in serious trouble and that the prize will support and bolster the troubled organization. Hundreds of people protested the awarding of the prize on the streets outside during the ceremony. Both the right-wing and the left-wing in Europe have criticized the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the EU.
