Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize -- WTF?

I usually ignore articles about Nobel prizes. They usually seem to be given to people that haven't really earned it. It seems the nomination process is based on something other than achievement, like when Gore won it for his work on "global warming."

And here comes a huge story to prove my point: Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize.

He has done nothing for peace. He is the one who called Afghanistan a must-win war. Yet, he gets a peace prize. Why?

The Nobel committee said its decision was motivated by Obama's initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism.
