Vladimir Putin Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize

Recommended Posts

Vladimir Putin has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Despite Russia’s role as the main supplier of weapons to Bashar al-Assad’s regime, an advocacy group has put the president’s name forward because the former KGB agent “actively promotes settlement of all conflicts arising on the planet.”

The International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation of Peoples of the World made no mention of Putin’s ruthless and violent campaign against the separatists in Chechnya or the war he waged on Georgia, but instead points to his efforts to prevent a US air strike on the Syrian regime following a chemical gas attack in August.

Considering some of the past winners giving it to Putin is a no brainer.

I think they just pick the winner out of a hat.

Why an earth have a 'peace prize' anyway?

Its not like any of them actually clearly promote peace like you enter a contest like in anything else. The idea of it seems so alien.

Too right!

If not for Russia under Putin, the US/Nato would have libyafied Syria quite some time ago and the country would be in tenfold the turmoil than it now is, and there would be yet another oil rich geo-politically strategic Middle East nation whose 'rebels' would be in need of yet more Western aid and military intervention in the name of democracy or whatever.

Putin is saving millions of lifes and is a keystone of stability on an international scale........whatever else anyone may want to say about him.

He deserves it about a million times more than Obama did. Without Putin, the West would be at war with/in Syria now (openly).
