He is clearly a wise leader and although he has some unflattering tendencies (like his attitude towards homosexuals) so did Obama (Drones, NSA, etc) and that didn't stop him from getting one or having said prize revoked.

I know it's a longshot, since the Nobel Committee is ideologically aligned with western values and is probably loath to give a prize to someone who so strongly opposes the liberal transatlantic power structure but it's worth speculating because he arguably is the most formidable statesman of our day.


Agreed. The Putin deserves the Prize.

To a man who suppressed free speech, outlaws homosexuality and invades breakaway states and unruly ex-puppets, I don't think so. But then, they gave one to Obama solely for being the first non-white president to be elected in the US, so I don't expect to be surprised if Putin somehow got one.

And for the record, neither was Obama. I thought that him winning it was a travesty.

Not really, and in any case Assad has a fine chin. As a straight male I can't tell if he's attractive but since he has a super hot wife then I can deduce he must be fairly good looking.

Putin should win the Nobel Prize in Super-Villainy, for showing us that Bond Style Evil Geniuses don't have to hold the world to ransom with death rays or nukes for gold, they can instead rise to the top of a country through mostly legitimate political means and acquire control of a decent chunk of the world's nuclear arsenal without all that bother of having to worry about whether 007 is banging their mistress.

Being a leader of a major power pretty much automatically entails being a bastard.

That said, Putin doesn't deserve a Nobel peace prize. Neither does Obama. Really, being a national leader should pretty much automatically disqualify you from the running.

He averted a war? He's been enabling the already existing war there. How about he brings Assad and the rebels to the conference table and brokers a real peace? That would be worth a Peace Prize.
