What Do These Men Have in Common?


None of them are champions of peace, yet they have all been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

  • Yassir Arafat fomented terrorism in the Middle East for decades before his death. The terror he incited continues to this day.
  • Jimmy Carter, the worst U.S. President of the 20th century, made concessions to Iran that allowed radicals in that country to capture U.S. Embassy personnel and hold them hostage for 444 days. Carter did nothing to save the hostages except for a lame attempt at a raid that resulted in the deaths of eight military personnel and the destruction of their helicopter.
  • Muhammad ElBaradei ignored the efforts of North Korea and Iran in their respective run-up to nuclear weapons. In his role as chief of the IAEA he consistently gave both rogue nations leeway to continue their efforts.
  • Finally, Al Gore has peddled falsehoods in the name of saving the planet from a highly-exaggerated climatological disaster. In his recent testimony before congress, he misrepresented the truth by declaring that “droughts are becoming longer and more intense” which has clearly been disproven by actual science.

The Nobel Peace Prize has been a joke for years. Consider the following with regard to the discretion of the prize award selection committee:

  • Why did they award Mikhail Gorbachev the Peace Prize for ending the cold war when Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher had more to do with it?
  • In keeping with their penchant for rewarding cowardice and deceit, why did they not award Bill Clinton for his retreat from Somalia after the Blackhawk Down incident? And for refusing to capture or kill Usama Bin Laden?

They should rename the prize to something like the Nobel Anti-American Prize and be done with it.

    Make you wonder why Sweden is a welfare state also.

    Rush Limbaugh said that Al Gore should have given the prize to General Petraeus, the Soldiers that fight for freedom and peace, and their Commander in Chief. I disagree.

    The Nobel award, by having the clowns above as recipients, has been so tainted that it is now damaged goods. Our military and their mission are far above that.

    Sweden - a welfare state - gay marriage - a misdirected sense of anti-Americanism - high unemployment - weakest partner in the European Union - highest suicide rate per capita in the world - personal firearms prohibited. Why wouldn’t we want to go there? (Sarcasm intentional.)

    Great post. We ought to come up with our own world peace award and call it the Ronald Reagan Award. And we could give out the award retrospectively, Ronald Reagan being one recipient.
