Guess who is nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize?

Clickity click.
The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.

OK, I've had it with those bozos. Giving Al Gore a Nobel Prize was bad enough. But even nominating for the Nobel Prize a traitor who compromized national security and probably got some good people killed was an act of terminal stupidity.

Serious or not, it's still a joke.

It's odd. We also felt the Noble people were biased and had an agenda when Walesa or some obscure Russian writer who betrayed his country got the prizes.

Walesa and those obscure Russian writers were rebelling against a truly evil regime built on an absolutely stupid and harmful philosophy. It is not wrong to resist tyranny. It is wrong to oppose and denounce those who do resist tyranny. Throughout its history, the United States of America has been the one power on earth that has resisted tyranny more than any other nation that has ever existed. Those whom we have defeated in war are better off now than they would otherwise have been, because we built them back up and taught them democracy. We do not tax them. We even gave back Okinawa to the Japanese. We did not make Cuba a USA state by force of arms when we could have. Puerto Rico has not been forced to become a state. One of the humorous but profound ideas propounded in the movie The Mouse that Roared, is that the best thing that can happen to a country is to be defeated in war with the USA.

Well, the Egyptian government might not be too happy over a nominee submitted by certain members of the US Congress: "Mama Maggie" Gobran, the Coptic Christian anti-poverty activist in Cairo.

Now, is everybody happy?

Some Norwegians apparently not:

Betraying his country? How, in your warped Collectivist mind, do you justify that "Q"? I believe you are getting 'country', or 'government/regime' mixed up with each other.

Good point. So who did Manning betray, his country or its government/regime?

His country.

Regime. Clearly he was getting back at the administrative forces that he believed were responsible for his treatment by officers within the military.

I am torn between how neat all the info is he provided and what our gov't is doing/thinking, and how much I hate such a shitstain for violating an oath/statement saying he wouldn't do such a thing, especially given her personal motives. That, and he looks like a weeny -- a strong signal on my my loathing radar.
