Julian Assange should be awarded Nobel peace prize, suggests Russia
The Guardian ^ | 12-9-10 | Luke Harding

Posted on 12/09/2010 1:30:40 PM PST by FS11

Russia has suggested that Julian Assange should be awarded the Nobel peace prize, in an unexpected show of support from Moscow for the jailed WikiLeaks founder.

In what appears to be a calculated dig at the US, the Kremlin urged non-governmental organisations to think seriously about "nominating Assange as a Nobel Prize laureate".

"Public and non-governmental organisations should think of how to help him," the source from inside president Dmitry Medvedev's office told Russian news agencies. Speaking in Brussels, where Medvedev was attending a Russia-EU summit yesterday , the source went on: "Maybe, nominate him as a Nobel Prize laureate."

Clever. Attempt to deimplicate themselves from any accident he might befall.

I guess if they’ll give one to Gore, they’ll give one to anybody. If this is the Russians’ best shot at a ‘dig’ against the US they’ve really gotten lame.

If B.O. had any baIIz, he’d have his researchers find some Russian who has recently done something to advance democracy in Russia (thus royally pissing them off) and suggest THEM for the (worthless) NPP. Surely their jails have a few likely candidates.

Isn’t it obvious the Russkies are just riffing on Obambi’s Nobel Peace Prizeness?

Sarcasm? Being facetious?

I don’t think so. Based on the dismal and pathetic record of the NPP, this is a very real possibility.

Does the Nobel Peace prize look like a red, plastic reset button?

We'll throw Russia's nominee in the hopper, along with the US news media's pick, the hackers currently vandalizing VISA, MC, etc sites.

The gushing worshipfullness of the news reporting on these clowns today truly is sickening.

Whoever could expose the dirty tricks, murders and treachery of the Russian autocracy would certainly deserve a Nobel Prize. That would be movie making material for the next fifty years. Likewise, if leaky Julian could expose all the underhanded dealings of the banker elites who have stolen and squandered trillions of dollars from Americans, I would say give the boy a bronze rubber, and give him his own reality TV show. Only a moron would have a huff over anyone spying on a worthless organization like the UN. It’s like keeping an eye on a drug addled, mentally deranged street urchin who is breaking into your house.

In practical terms, wikileaks and their secret army of internet vandals represent nothing less than a global coup d’etat by the media-industrial complex and its adherents. The objective is to remove the power of governments entirely, at least free or accountable governments, and substitute the media culture as the final arbiter of policy.
Wikileaks’s supporters and apologists are almost entirely associated with the media and media values, including its political arm (the Democratic Party); and its enforcers, (the anarchists, NGOs, lefty agitators). Their targets are non-media power centers of any kind. They have not targeted totalitarian governments because media culture has a well-documented affinity for totalitarianism.

If the Russians do intend to award him the “Polonium Prize,” they will have to remember not to hide it in a condom.

Did Russia ever suggest that Ronald Reagan deserved a Nobel Peace Prize for ending Soviet Communism’s 70 year reign of death?

Didn’t think so.

Thanks
I might add that totalitarian governments are simply not cost-effective targets for the media forces: They are much less accountable for the revelations, and they are far more likely to exact a high price for them.

I didn’t know that Nobel commitee had a category for espionage. I guess the russians would be the best choice to offer up the nomination.
