An Amazing man?.. Well, I love the justification for him winning this now marginilized pile of shit. "For criticizing American Policy."

Nothing more than a swipe at W. and his administration.

You just don't like Democrats. Besides, this was the "Nobel Peace Prize," not the "Nobel War Prize."

You don't seem to understand why he won, and with that attitude, you probably never will.

From CNN.com

Announcing the winner on Friday, the five-member Norwegian Nobel Committee praised Carter's decades of "untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development."

"In a situation currently marked by threats of the use of power, Carter has stood by the principles that conflicts must as far as possible be resolved through mediation and international cooperation based on international law, respect for human rights and economic development," the Nobel Committee said.


Congratulations, President Carter.

Carter has set the standard for ex-presidential behavior. He puts his beliefs into action, as demonstrated by his endless support of Habitat for Humanity.

Just a thought (and not related to Carter), but does the Nobel committee have a narrow view of those eligible as a Peace Prize winner? Peace is sometime obtained by taking a hawkish attitude. Forty years of enormous destructive power in the now unified Germany is gone. Does that qualify as peace?

Congratulations!!!!

The man is absolutely inspirational to anyone who is a global citizen. I'm surprised he hasn't been honored with the Nobel Peace Prize before this.

Even the fact that people nominated Bono for his humanitarian contributions to the world is a supreme honor. This award celebrates lifetime achievements, so I would not be surprised to see him honored one day...cause I don't think he's going to stop caring and being 'the Pest'.

Indeed. I think his actions have been proven over the past two decades that he is instrumental for peace.

I think that, in this case, it is certainly possible for peace, but this judgment in regards to the current "war on terror" will only be achieved by time; seeing as to whether these actions will indeed inspire peace, if these actions will only achieve American economical dominance, or if these actions will only inflame violence. Again, the only way to see this is through the passage of time, hence making judgment on Bush or Blair and their actions thus far to be highly premature.
