News spread quickly to every corner of the world that a Chinese person, Liu Xiaobo, won the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize after the announcement in Oslo on Friday, triggering an explosion of reports in the Western media. Many Chinese people can't help wondering who this guy is.

Liu once allegedly said that, "China needs to be colonized for 300 years."That such a person, and such remarks, should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize - can it get any more ridiculous?
