Talk About Destroying Your Credibility! Flummery

I'm sure that everyone in the Bloggosphere is well aware that this:

............. along with the IPCC.

Was awarded THIS ....

Seems to me that the Nobel Foundation is a little bit confused in recent years!

With the awarding of this once prestigious prize to a string of charlatans, failures, terrorist supporters and even sworn terrorists .... What Value does the Nobel prize for peace have?

Check out the articles and links provided at STACLU ....
For the LAZY here's a short list of recent recipients with what I see as less than deserving CV's:
2007 - IPCC, AA Gore Jr.
2005 - IAEA, Mohamed El Baradei
2002 - Jimmy Carter
2001 - The UN , Kofi Annan
1994 - Yasser Arafat ( shared with Shimon Perez and Yitzhak Rabin)
1984 - Desmond Tutu

Frankly I do not care if the Nobel Foundation wishes to destroy their own credibility!
However it's a damned shame that they tarnish the value of this award by comparing the likes of those listed above with the likes of:
Albert Schweitzer. Linus Pauling, George C. Marshall. LesterB. Pearson, Martin Luther King Henry Kissinger, The Dali Llama, Muhammad Yunus, Shirin Ebadi, Michail Gorbachev and many others who have actually accomplished a measure of improvement in world affairs.

That IS a SHAME!!

Nobel is cache. Just like CBS. They just don't see their actions as debasing the franchise.

they are promoting their view of the world - it has nothing to do with peace any more unless someone from their belief set just happens to do something that promotes peace. not that that is very likely any more.

love your site - i'll be adding you to my blogroll. thanks!
