Jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo has been awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize - sparking anger in Beijing.
Leaders in China branded the selection an "obscenity" and warned ties with Oslo would suffer.
He had called for sweeping political reforms in China, including the freedom of assembly, freedom of expression and freedom of religion.

Really? Obscenity?

Why the Chinese think the Peace Prize should be taken remotely seriously when they gave it to Barry O'Barmy for fucking twenty minute's light work is quite beyond me.

And just what do they buy from any of the Scandi countries to make it more than an empty threat?
