Nobel Peace Prize winner

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has just awarded the Peace Prize to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and its director-general Mohamed ElBarade, no doubt in an effort to encourage a "peaceful solution" to the dispute over Iran's nuclear program. Why do I have to share the same country as these wankers?

Nobel Peace Prize winner

The Norwegian Nobel committee named the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2005 in Oslo on Friday morning. Committee chairman Ole Danbolt Mjøs announced the winner of the 10 million Swedish crown (USD 1.29 million) prize at the Nobel Institute in Oslo at 11 a.m. The prize was awarded in two parts, to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and its director-general Mohamed ElBaradei. Last minute speculation had centered on the award going to anti-nuclear efforts. The year 2005 marks the 60th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan and commentators noted the committee's habit of awarding anti-nuclear activists at ten-year intervals. In 1995, British ban-the-bomb scientist Joseph Rotblat won with his Pugwash organisation. In 1985, the award went to a US-Soviet group of doctors, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.

Not surprising. This is the same gang that gave Arafat a peace prize.

And Jimmy Carter, The UN (including Kofi Annan) and Wangari Muta Maathai.

The last winner noted above has stated that aids was some kind of western conspiracy unleashed against blacks. She must have won in the tinfoil hat category.

OT, but this may help your template.

I think the sidebar is too wide because of the Google form. But there’s a table in there that could be changed to be narrower. In order to do that I added “/tr” and “tr” tags to the piece of HTML shown below. This should put the image ABOVE the text box & labels.

Sorry Dude, we're stuck with Jimmah Cahteh. You have to shoulder some of the load. If they all reach the same place they'll reach critical mass and civilization as we know it will cease to exist.

Mohamed ElBaradei - isnt this the guy who insisted that Libya had no nuclear weapons programme, until Gaddafi owned up to it.
