She's earned it more than 90% of the people that get it.

That's actually not true. Most of the recipients do deserve it (Dalai Lama, the guy who led the Tianmen Square protests, the leader of the peaceful resistance movement in Myanmar, etc.) The only recipient who did not deserve it was Obama.

Oh, there are plenty of people who didn't deserve it besides Obama

Also, Hitler and Stalin were also nominated for a peace prize. Its too bad they didn't get it. Would've made the Nobel peace prize a bigger joke then it already is.

Yeah...thats not true. Granted, a lot of great people have gotten the prize, but a lot of crappy people have as well.

The fact that Hitler and Stalin were nominated, and that Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, and some crazy lady who tried to prove that HIV was caused by white scientists to kill black people...us several others, as shown by DK.....

So, essentially, its a joke.

She got shot in response to advocating for schools for women. A prize is given for accomplishments; she accomplished nothing. When women get schools in her country because of her, then she should get the prize. Otherwise, she is just a useless martyr.

The manipulative, lying, meglomaniacal war criminal Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, in 1973 I think. I don't even want to know how much innocent blood that man has on his hands. Also, Gandhi never got one. So yeah, the prize is without its controversies, to say the least. It became a total joke after they awarded Obama the prize basically for not being George W. Bush. I would support awarding this girl the prize. What a brave little girl, she's got more courage than I would ever be able to display in that situation. Truly inspirational...

She has brought the plight of women in countries where they are ridiculously infairly discriminated against to the forefront on everyones mind. She has been continuously campaigning for the rights of women in regard to education.

Giving her the peace prize would be rewarding someone who is prepared to stand up for something that they believe so passionately about, even in the face of such violent oppression. Giving her the peace prize would show the people that did this to her that the world does not support their actions and that we will not condone what has been done to her.

I'm willing to debate this if you want.

lol she's not going to get the Nobel Peace Prize, especially not when the past few recipients have been a complete joke. Obama and the EU? Really? What has the EU accomplished besides bankruptcy?!

On another note, I wish for her full recovery. Last I heard she was speaking and sitting up. :)

Pretty sure there was also some "He's a black president" and "He wants to spend even more on health care than Bush" in there.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.
