NOBEL LAUREATE IS NO PRIZE FOR THE CAUSE PEACE

It's official, the Nobel Peace Prize is going the way of the Miss America Pagent - obscurity. First Jimmy "Dhimmi" Carter, Yasser "I'm a Terrorist" Arafat, and now Mohamed "The Atom" ElBaradei. Sheesh!

Says the London Times, ElBaradei's Nobel is about politics: he has been a failure.
Giving the Nobel Peace Prize to Mohamed ElBaradei is a slap in the face for the United States.

That was surely the motivation; it is hard to see any other reasons for the award to him, shared with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

In the past eight years, they have failed to detect covert nuclear programmes in at least three countries - and failed to get diplomatic purchase on the problems when others have finally brought them to light. That does not amount to a contribution to world peace.

The IAEA’s "success" in not exaggerating the threat of Iraq in 2003 is compromised by the number of times it has missed a threat entirely: Saddam's nuclear programme before 1991, the Libyan and Iranian programmes and the "nuclear supermarket" run by A Q Khan, the Pakistani scientist.

It was also slow to sound the alarm about North Korea’s conversion of its civil nuclear power into a weapons programme.

The greatest recent incident of tension between nuclear powers - the stand-off between India and Pakistan after the 1998 nuclear tests - was left to the US and Europe to tackle.

Actually, the point of the post was that the IAEA and Mohamed ElBaradei have been wrong or ineffective more often than not. Yes, they were right about the WMD in Iraq thank God. Unfortunatley they were unable to prove there were no WMD's beyond a reasonable doubt - so intervention was still necessary. Not to mention that Sadaam was just plain 'ol mean and needed to go.

Oh, and by the way, please STOP typing in ALL CAPS because I find it ANNOYING and this is MY BLOG afterall.
