Was flipping through and saw the end of a debate between two columnists on CNN. Below them the headline read that Bush and Blair are to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Haven't read anything on their website yet.

Is this someone's idea of a sick joke? If true, this is an abomination.

Bush and Blair were nominated by a Norwegian legislator.

"The background for my nomination is their decisive action against terrorism, something I believe in the future will be the greatest threat to peace," Nesvik said. "Unfortunately, sometimes ... you have to use force to secure peace."

If Carter, Arafat, and Kissinger can win it I don't see why they can't. The whole thing is a joke anyway.

Carter has worked his who life, post-1600 Pennsylvania for peace, KAUSPilot, so I think he deserved it. Kissinger and Arafat were jokes. But for ANYONE to nominate two men who launched a war against a rather helpless nations should be the LAST two to be nominated.

They'll never get it. The fools who run the Nodel committee made it quite that they hate Bush. That was the whole reason for giving it to Carter and they publicly admitted it. Instead of giving it to people who deserve it, the idiots are more than happy to award it to terrorists, dictators, and their leftist buddies. Alfred Nobel would be turning in his grave knowing the prizes he created are being used as tools in a petty political game.

Tell me, Mr. GOP, why does Bush deserve it? What has he done that is so peaceful, or that has promoted peace? Killed a few thousand Iraqi's, and about 200 allied troops? Threatened Iran? Threatened Syria? Threatened allies who don't agree with him.

Bush is not a man of peace. He never will be. He wants to be remembered for all ages as a great warrior. He may be remembered as a warrior. I doubt, when the last word is said about him, he'll be remembered as great.

The Peace Prize needs to be eliminated.

It is too politicized for the ideas behind the creation of it by Alfred Nobel.

Alpha 1 is completely right, the peace prize should be given to somebody that goes out of their way to force peace. Starting a war, doesn't help, occupying nations who hate us just because we control everything and tell EVERY country what to do (think bush telling saddam he has 48 hours to get out of his own country, or telling Russia that the islands that have belonged to them, but still lie off of the north of Japan should be given to Japan). A person who pushes international relations should be given the prize, not the person who ruined them.


Clinton spent 25% of his presidency out in another country having peace, economy, and allied talks between many many nations, and improves the Israeli/palestinian situation, and here comes Dubya who sat at his ranch 41% of his first year in presidency.

And Clinton spent the other 75% lobing Tomahawks at Sudan, Iraq, Croatia, Serbia, Afghanistan every time he got caught with his fly open.

That and leaving out guys out to dry in Somalia and damm near doing the same thing in Bosnia.

The argument is that sometimes you have to use force to secure peace. I don't disagree with that, and I doubt many of you are too simplistic to understand that. Surely you do, and if you do, then you should argue that the force used in question did nothing to end a threat to peace. Also, the gravy was 23 million people getting a new start and a chance for lives out from under the thumb of a tyrant. Certainly you would agree that that alone would warrant a Nobel, I do. Now if you do, then you need to argue that the Iraqi civilians were not under the thumb of a tyrant. Will their lives be better? Probably after some hard work but maybe not. At least they have a chance. So go ahead and poo-poo away, but I think this isn't as insane as you are all making out out to be. At least you haven't made a case against; just reactionary small talk driven by your bias. So which is it? Is waging war to end a threat for peace never Novel worthy? If it is IYHO, then did this war not achieve that? Does freeing millions from a tyrant not warrant a Nobel? If so, did this war not achieve that. I know most of you are smart enough to make a case, so let's hear that instead of cheap talk.

P.S. The nomination sounds like it came under doing battle against terrorism in general, so I suspect Afghanistan and those civvies are part of the equation.

Remember the Balkans? Remember women and children dead after a medicine plant was attacked in the Sudan in 1997?

Remember General Wesley Clark wanting to attack a Russian airport?

Well, Blair might, correct me if I am wrong but he is actively working on the whole, N.I. thing. But time will tell if that pans out.

A Nobel prize of G.W........Well I guess that is more of a second term issue. You never know though if the Iraq reconstruction turns out well or if that roadmap is accepted by the Palestinians and Israelis. Then he may end up still deserving of one.
