Taking a break from awarding paper tigers
, and general moonbats
, the Nobel committee gives his year's prize goes to Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh
, "for their efforts to create economic and social development from below."The Hindu reports
In awarding them the prize, the Nobel Committee said their efforts showed how working to eliminate poverty can result in a lasting peace.
They're a bunch of loons. Poverty isn't an obstacle to peace. Tyranny is an obstacle to peace (and a major contributing factor to poverty, BTW). Being a humanitarian is one thing; influencing a decrease in tyranny is another, and Yunus ain't doing the latter. Alfred Nobel should have set up a Humanitarian Prize for people like Yunus (and Norman Borlaug).
Update: If you're wondering why Wangari Maathai qualifies as a general moonbat, visit Winds of Change.
