As if it’s not bad enough that such unrepentant thugs and rascals as the aforementioned have copped the Peace Prize, it’s equally enlightening to consider the people who haven’t won it. Namely, those gallant souls who don’t back down when confronted by evil, but who, instead, take up arms and, on occasion, sacrifice their lives in the never ending battle. I mean, really, ask yourselves: who has done more to promote peace on earth -- Al Gore and Jimmy Carter or Winston Churchill and the American G.I.?
