Nobel "Peace" Prize

OSLO (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog and its head, Mohamed ElBaradei, won the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for their efforts to limit the spread of atomic weapons.
Well, another ridiculous choice for the Nobel Peace Prize. Rather than award the prize to President Bush who arguably has done more to secure peace (in a real sense) in the world than anyone else alive at the moment, the Nobel Committee has again picked someone who promotes "peace", meaning the absence of war. El Baradei joins such notables as:

Jimmy Carter: The man who may be more responsible than any other for the rise of Islamic terrorism for his abject failure to respond to Iran Hostage Crisis in 1979

Yasser Arafat: What more do I need say here?

Mikhail Gorbachev: The final leader of the most murderous regime in history; a regime that set in place the climate for today's Islamism with its invasion of Afghanistan in 1980.

Kofi Annan: the man who oversaw the watering down and ineffectual enforcement (and fraudulent use of) the United Nations Oil for Food Program.

It is only surprising (and I am not being tongue in cheek here), given that list, that Adolph Hitler and Neville Chamberlain were not awarded the prize in 1939 for the Munich Accords, which preserved "peace" at the expense of dismembering Czechoslovakia. Perhaps they would have won the award if Hitler had just held off invading Poland until October 1939.

Who don't you see on the list:

Pope John Paul II
Winston Churchill
Ronald Reagan
G.H.W. Bush

The little fingers of each one of these men were far more deserving of the award than el Baradei and his group of inept weapons inspectors.
