Qatar is a brilliant example for our children of what liberties are about, and the Nobel Peace Price EU may be proud of the choice of its allies...

M of A - German Paper: U.S. Pressing For NATO War On Syria

Enrique Ferro's insight:

While U.S. "officials" continue to spread rumors of Syrian preparations of chemical weapons the reliable center-left German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung reports (in German) on U.S. attempts to get NATO to fight a war against Syria. The report is by Martin Winter, the resident Süddeutsche correspondent in Brussels. As similar reporting has yet to occur in the English media I offer my (rough) translation of his important piece.

OpEdNews Article: Article: NATO aims for a Nobel war prize

OpEdNews Article: Article: NATO aims for a Nobel war prize | Global politics | Scoop.it
The European Union (EU) received the Nobel Peace Prize for advancing peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The European Union (EU), this Monday in Oslo, received the Nobel Peace Prize for advancing peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights.  


How exciting. Look at the cast selected to receive the award; the spectacularly useless Herman van Rompuy (president of the European Council); the spectacularly mediocre Jose Manuel Barroso (president of the European Commission); and non-entity Martin Schulz, president of the European Parliament. The Rolling Stones may be geriatric, but at least they still know how to work a crowd.
