China peace prize awarded to Russia's Putin
A group of Chinese academics has awarded its version of the Nobel Peace Prize to Vladimir Putin, an organizer said Tuesday, pointing to the Russian Prime Minister as “outstanding in keeping world peace.” Putin beat other candidates such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Yuan Longping, a Chinese agricultural scientist, to nab this year's “Confucius Peace Prize”, Qiao Damo, one of the organizers, told AFP.

The prize emerged last year, when it was suddenly announced by the group two days before jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo was awarded the Nobel to Beijing's anger, sparking speculation it was set up with the government's guidance.Members of the jury at the time denied links to the government, but the award's executive chairman Liu Haofeng told AFP later that it had been set up by an association overseen by China's culture ministry.

Peace is not simply the absence of war; it is the presence of justice.--Ronald Reagan

But, for the totalitarians, peace is whatever someone with a gun says it is.
