    :banana: another eloquent, free and brave woman has won the nobel peace prize. we should salute her for her achievements and the works she has embarked on for the future. in her field especially, recognizing the truth that the great majority of africa's nightmarish conflicts are over resources is a vital aspect of her contribution to africa and its future. the most troubled continent in the world today got some good news for once.

    While im sure protecting the environment is a great thing and this woman is probably a good woman, on what basis does protecting the environment deserve the nobel peace prize? her accomplishments have nothing to do with providing peace in the world.

    But then, neither did Jimmy Carter's.

    in Africa, it is quite true that the scarcity of resources is and will continue to be a source of conflict. the fact that she has fought to secure those resources and prevent them from being wiped out is perhaps what the nobel folks were thinking.

    At any rate increasing the agricultural productivity of Africa would be much preferable to most Africans than trying to save the trees. You can't eat wood.

    Obviously she didn't win the prize for brains. Guess they picked names out of a phone book this year.

    You really think we are going to cause war over trees? I dont. its a ridiculous idea.

    as for Aids, maybe it was a biological agent. But what makes her think it was created in the west? Soviets quite a weapons program too. Perhaps they thought that they could inject it with a few of their sympathetic comerades and encourage them to promote sexual immorality without disclosing that they were infected with an agent. Perhaps it was a way to use America's freedom against it. Who knows at this point but its kinda silly to think it was made for the express purpose of eliminating the people in africa as this woman seems to imply. If you dont want aids to spread stop 1)having sex outside marriage 2)Doing drugs 3)careless blood transfusions. Its not terribly difficult.

    I commend her for her accomplishments.

    But I question how she qualified for a Nobel Peace Prize after she states that the AIDS virus was created by white people to wipe out blacks. This statement doesn't sound peaceful to me.

    Ebola is from Africa also, you know the one that makes you bleed out, so why is it hard to accept that the AIDS virus is from there also.

    Because half of the top ten biological warfare plants are located in Africa.

    To understand the reasoning behind her theory, you must understand how the virus works in its defensive posture.

    When the HIV virus gets attacked by a vaccine, many of them will die; however, within months, the HIV virus quickly changes its genetic code and blocks out the vaccine; no different than a General retreats from his position, reposition his troops, then mount a new offensive.

    In layman's terms; this virus can literally read and react. This is the first known virus to know how to think for itself. The question is who "taught" it how to think?

    Any suggestions?
