    This one caught me a bit off guard. I can understand the reasoning why someone could support and justify Bush and Blair's war on Iraq and Afghanistan. However to say that they're spokesmodels for peace is incredulous at best.

    ...then again I do remember a certain Palestinian leader getting this prize. :rolleyes:

    I don't find Bush and Blair any more comical/crazy than Kofi Anan winning in 2001.

    They may as well give posthumously to Hitler for all I believe it's worth.

    It does seem to be the most political of the prizes... seems to be the playground of politicians who are in the media spotlight.
