A Nobel Prize for Hypocrisy: Opinion

VANCOUVER (Bullions Bull Canada) -- It seems impossible to believe the Nobel Prize committee could have disgraced itself any further than when it awarded its "Peace Prize" to President Barack Obama in 2009.

Obama received his farcial reward for perpetuating one brutal, decade-long military occupation (Afghanistan) while he was also busy supplying military training and re-arming Iraqi Sunnis in preparation for a new civil war in Iraq.

Yet, in 2012, the Nobel Prize committee has done it again. Friday it awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union for its central role in perpetrating the economic rape of the peoples of Europe.

Indeed, with this one prize the Nobel committee has demonstrated these awards are now nothing but political propaganda whose only purpose is to try to make "black" appear "white."

We see this clearly displayed with the fabricated pretext for making this award:

The European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize for fostering peace on a continent ravaged by war.

The reality is that in 2012 the EU did precisely the opposite of this.

Understand that the "unity crisis" that has engulfed the EU was created by the EU this year. There was no unity crisis at the beginning of the year. This "crisis" didn't begin until the EU had completed its economic destruction of Greece's economy.

Here again the facts are unequivocal. The EU demanded that Greece's supposedly sovereign government follow its own "plan" to supposedly rescue Greece's economy...except there was no plan. The EU simply forced Europe's least-solvent government to borrow countless billions more euros, with interest.

How can forcing an insolvent debtor to borrow more money solve a "debt crisis"? Obviously it can't. It is the most-literal example imaginable of the cliche of "putting out the fire with gasoline."

It's also important that readers are aware of the political/economic blackmail engaged in by the EU as it forced this economic suicide on Greece. It demanded that Greece continue to impose sadistic "austerity" on its population, even after economic data clearly showed this was accelerating the collapse of Greece's economy. Meanwhile, the EU warned of numerous acts of economic retribution should Greece's government fail to accede to its terms of blackmail.
