SnyderShrugged Posted October 16, 2009 Share Posted October 16, 2009 No it didn't..... It never was a concern for either Roosevelt or Wilson to accept the award, although neither traveled to Norway to do so....What was similar was the controversy. Teddy Roosevelt got the award for negotiating peace between the Russians and the Japanese. The controversy was the Japanese had sneaked attacked the Russian fleet and sank it, and then ambushed their North Sea fleat and sank it. Teddy Negotiated Peace only after Japan had all the chips.. Some accomplishment.... 30 years latter Japan used the same tactic on us at Pearl Harbor. Wilson won the Nobel Peace Prize in an equally controversial fashion. He created the League of Nations. A precursor to the United Nations. Only after he became the toast of the world for creating the beurocracy the United States declined to participate. The weekness of the Legue is often cited as one of hte reasons for WWII occurring... Again some achievement. I just read that the constitutional issue did in fact come up (much ado about nothing) why are you being so argumentative today? I posted that I agreed with you already?
