Recently,the U.N.and its Secretary General Kofi ANAN
were given the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize.
I wonder if its a merit or something else that goes
beyond my knowledge!
As you can see...efforts to establish peace over the
world are shameful and discriminatory,if i have to
Of course,your participation and your contradictory
ideas are greately apreciated.

The Nobel Peace prize has gone to wellknown terrorists in the recent past, so the UN might fit right in:
- Arafat, for killing Israelis and hijacking aircraft in the name of peace
- Mandela, for killing white people in South Africa in the name of peace
It is a purely political gesture, and does not have any real value apart from the PR it provides to the person getting it.

Jwenting...i don't know if i have to thank you for this
answer or not!!!
Need less to say that Arafat is a terorist...you know
he's not...and if it was,how could you describe Sharon,
Barak and the others???
Concerning Mandela,you seem confusing him with
Frederic DE KLERK.
Of course,you need an overall...i can do it for free!!!

OK, so I can see how some people could be brainwashed to believe that PM Sharon is some kind of a bad person (guess what, when you are a general in a constantly fighting army, you are going to be responsible for people dying!), but Barak?
As for the original question, no, the UN does not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. Besides, giving a Peace Prize a month after the worst terrorists attack(s) in the history of the world just doesn't sound right.
