Nobel "Peace" Prizes?

Thanks to Kanaka Girl for passing this on. Just what exactly does it take to win a Nobel "Peace" Prize these days? Apparently, a "peaceful" disposition is not a prerequisite. From our buds, the Aussies:
NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W.Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren.

Campaigning on the rights of young people at the Earth Dialogues forum, being held in Brisbane, Ms Williams spoke passionately about the deaths of innocent children during wartime, particularly in the Middle East, and lambasted Mr Bush.

"I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent," said Ms Williams, 64.

"Right now, I would love to kill George Bush." Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.

"I don't know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize, because when I see children die the anger in me is just beyond belief. It's our duty as human beings, whatever age we are, to become the protectors of human life."
"I don't know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize"? Allow me to enlighten you, Betty. All one has to do is look at past recipients, such as Yassar Arafat and Jimmy Carter and Amnesty International, to properly conclude that in absence of a peaceful or non-violent disposition, a simple anti-American sentiment will suffice.

I am touched that Betty here is commited to her "duty" to be a "protector of human life"...so long as that life isn't George Bush's life. Why, if I didn't know any better, I'd swear that the "peace" advocates aren't being very genuine about their true feelings! Anywho, continuing:
"My job is to tell you their stories," Ms Williams said of a recent trip to Iraq.

"We went to a hospital where there were 200 children; they were beautiful, all of them, but they had cancers that the doctors couldn't even recognise. From the first Gulf War, the mothers' wombs were infected.

"As I was leaving the hospital, I said to the doctor, 'How many of these babies do you think are going to live?'

"He looked me straight in the eye and said, 'None, not one'. They needed five different kinds of medication to treat the cancers that the children had, and the embargoes laid on by the United States and the United Nations only allowed them three."
Once again, we have another illustration that the left never properly differentiates between good and evil, nor do they ever properly assign the culpability. See, the blockade was the fault of the U.S. and the U.N., and not the fault of Saddam Hussein.

Possessing that kind of perversion of reality and logic, Ms. Williams, is how you were able to win a Nobel "Peace" Prize.
