Bush, Blair nominated for Nobel Peace Prize
    #3392720 - 11/21/04 12:42 PM (12 years, 18 days ago)

Old news but it just caught my eye I laughed so hard in discust I felt the need to post it..

http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/s1035353.htm

Bush, Blair nominated for Nobel Peace Prize
Two of the architects of the Iraq war, United States President George W Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, are among nominees for the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize.

Nominations for the prestigious award close tomorrow.

After sending thousands of soldiers to war and failing to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Mr Bush and Mr Blair have been put forward to receive the Nobel peace prize.

They were nominated by Jan Simonsen, an independent member of Norway's Parliament who says the pair got rid of a dictator and made the world safer.

"Bush and Blair definitely still deserve it," he said.

"Even though they haven't found those weapons they got rid of a dictator and made the world more safe. They got rid of a madman."

Saddam's alleged weapons of mass destruction were a main justification for the war.

Nobel watchers say neither Mr Bush nor Mr Blair has much chance of winning.

Other nominees are varied and include: Pope John Paul II; the European Union to mark its expansion to include former East bloc states; the Salvation Army; former Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler; former Czech president Vaclav Havel; former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic; and Chinese dissidents.

The 2003 prize went to Iranian human rights lawyer Shirin Ebadi from a record field of 165 nominees.

The prize winner is announced in October.

While I agree the prospect of either of them winning a Peace Prize of any sort is laughable, the bias in that article is pretty ridiculous.

Yasser Arafat was not only nominated for a Nobel peace Prize, he was actually awarded one. If Yasser freakin' Arafat can win one, the door's wide open for just about anyone.

Kissinger did a lot of work for facism by overthrowing the democratically elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende. And bringing war to neutral nations (Laos and Cambodia). And supporting the genocide of the population of east Timor. And deliberate collusion in mass murder, and later in assassination, in Bangladesh. And the personal involvement in a plan to murder the head of state in the democratic nation of Cyprus. And the personal involvement in a plan to kidnap and murder a journalist living in Washington, DC.

you know, I don't really expect much out of you, Great_Satan - but come on!

Jan Simonsen, by the way, was kicked out of the ultra-right wing Fremskritt-Partiet after accusations of his using government influence to get a friend a license to sell liquor.... take my opinion for what it is, but Simonsen is a facist.

Except Yasser got his for agreeing a peace deal, not launching an illegal war on the basis of ludicrous lies about WMD and slaughtering thousands of women and children.

Too bad his heart wasn't into the agreement. I would loan a crackhead money before believing that Arafat actually wanted peace with Isreal.

Which he had no intention of ever honoring and in fact never did honor. By the same criterion, Saddam Hussein should have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for agreeing to a conditional ceasefire which he had no intention of honoring and in fact never did honor.

"Agreeing" means nothing. Words are cheap. Actions count.

It was certainly the most craven surrender to Israel imaginable.

I would loan a crackhead money before believing that Arafat actually wanted peace with Isreal.

Why agree to such a craven surrender if you didn't want peace?

Arafat backed out later because Israel didn't hold up to the middleground where they were supposed to meet.
