The selection of the European Union as the recipient of the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize is questionable on a number of levels, but most of all because it ignores the NATO alliance, which has done even more to guarantee peace on the continent since World War II. The EU’s award is the latest example of the Nobel Committee's increasing politicization and growing leftist leanings, as LIGNET explains.Since its creation over a century ago, the Nobel Peace Prize has been a useful tool in promoting world peace. It has shined a media spotlight on oppressed people who are often forgotten by the international community. But the award is now used more and more to promote a narrow, left-of-center political ideology rather than world peace, which was its original mission.
