Chemical Weapons Watchdog Wins Nobel Peace Prize – NYTimes.com: this award is one of the stupidest on earth. Mr. Nobel is turning in his grave.The Peace Prize is a joke and has been since given to Kissinger and other warmongers. The chemical inspectors are also a joke since they don’t visit Israel or the US to see what chemical weapons are held in these two very belligerent nations.
The threat of war forced Assad to disarm but the real actor in this business wasn’t Kerry or his boss, Netanyahu, it was Putin.
Giving this award to the warmongers in Europe was as big a joke as giving it to Obama and then not demanding it back when he turned into a warmonger.
Time to ditch the prize which was the only prize Mr. Nobel wanted because he felt guilty about making war even more destructive. Rewarding anyone who has nukes is disgusting.
Giving it to people who pushed Palestinians into ghettoes is criminal. Giving it to the imperial power that fought the Vietnamese people when they revolted was revolting. Giving it for retreating from Vietnam after public dissent in the US forced the government to retreat was pure evil.
I said back in 1973 that we antiwar organizers should get the Peace Prize, not Kissinger. Giving a prize to the loser in a war when the loser is an out of control empire is insane, totally against the wishes of Mr. Nobel and all the antiwar people killed by our government should have been condemned, not rewarded for negotiating a retreat. And the retreat was temporary, the US went right back into warmongering right away as soon as the US public voted against Carter.
Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel wrote in his will in 1895, on which the Nobel foundation was later established, that the peace prize should be awarded to those “who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
The real winner of this award would be someone like Snowden or even more to point, Mannings. Both, together, pulled aside the Cloak of Invisibility where our State Department and Pentagon, both working for rich elite internationalists and dictators, showing the many crimes of these two entities both of which are notorious warmongers and which use a country that boasts about the world’s most dangerous standing army.
The US has garnered way too many awards for stopping violence we began. While the real heroes, Daniel Ellsberg who risked his life to get the Pentagon Papers published gets nothing from the prize committee while war criminal Kissinger gets the kissy kissy. By the way, Ellsberg has this petition for us all: » Sign Daniel Ellsberg’s petition to free Bradley Manning! Private Manning Support Network.
