    If the Nobel committee is just passing out prizes as they did in Obama's case, they why the hell would any Trump supporter want one for Donald?

    Why is Obama always the measure by which Trump measures himself?

    If Obama's prize has no meaning, then Trump will be even less meaningful.

    The Koreas have been at peace for 65 years. NK has no verifiable deliverable nuclear weapon.

    What is Donald Trump doing exactly to bring about peace?

    I dont recall him focusing on economics, but whatever.

    As far as I can tell, the revolution in Egypt turned out okay, the transition was reasonably peaceful and the big lesson should have been for the US to keep our military out of these things. Too bad we weren't able to show more restraint in Libya and Syria.
    Yea, the Muslim Brotherhood gaining office was great until they got caught calling Israelis monkeys.

    As to your proclamation that pulling out of Iraq caused ISIS, I would assert that taking out Saddam in the first place was where that started because it started a sectarian conflict that's still going on there.
    Agreed.

    Notice Saudi Arabia and Israel getting together to push for war with Iran.
    Because Obamas Iran deal will give them nukes in a few years and Irans theocracy is bat shit crazy. They believe the twelfth Imam (their Jesus) can only be summoned back to Earth when the Word burns in conflict.

    I was actually just illustrating past behavior of the Nobel comity. I said "no one should get a NPP for just showing up to work".

    If Obama's prize has no meaning, then Trump will be even less meaningful.
    Depends on what it might be awarded for. I is however extremely unlikely he will get one, the Nobel comity seems to be very Left leaning.

    The Koreas have been at peace for 65 years. NK has no verifiable deliverable nuclear weapon.
    What is it they keep firing over Japan, or detonating in tests?

    What is Donald Trump doing exactly to bring about peace?
    I guess we would have to ask rocket man what prompted him to radically change his attitude.
    Thanks from THOR

    Absolutely. There were no pressing economic concerns whatsoever when Obama took office. Everything was just peachy keen, because the Bush tax cuts had made everyone wealthy.

    That's how you remember it, isn't it?

    I obviously was continuing to talk about his overseas speeches, not domestic troubles.

    Who gets the prize should be up to the people who give it, dont you think.

    The No-Bell Peace Prize is a Joke.

    No normal thinking person expects the marxist left to acknowledge ANY of Trump's accomplishments.

    How will backing out of the agreement prevent Iran from getting nukes?
