On the other hand looking through past winners it seems that he is very much in accord with many previous recipients:
INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE (IPCC) and AL GORE for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.
The IPCC are a political organisation pushing the warming scam to make the world's populations more manageable. Gore's film & most of what he says has been proven to a deliberate pack of lies.
MUHAMMAD YUNUS and GRAMEEN BANK for their efforts to create economic and social development from below. Runs a grassroots bank which actually only survives because of western "aid". Very politically correct, of more marginal usefulness.
INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY and MOHAMED ELBARADEI Political agency & its Director which has, at least, not encouraged the use of commercial nuclear power & promotes the fear inducing LNT theory of radiation damage when all the scientific evidence is for the hormesis theory, that minute levels of radiation are actually beneficial.
For planting trees in Africa - this may have done some good though it is hardly heroic
Iranian ex-judge & government opponent. May indeed be on the side of justice but definitely a foe of America's chosen enemy "rogue state".
JIMMY CARTER JR.,former President of the United States of America,
UNITED NATIONS, New York, NY, USA KOFI ANNAN, United Nations Secretary General In effect a New World Order controlled organisation which provides a pretext for western interventions. Annan became boss because the US was so impressed by the way he lied & twisted to help the NATO/Nazi cause in Bosnia & Hercegovina.
KIM DAE JUNG Former South Korean President. Did come to power by opposing the previous dictatorship & despite western approval probably a worthy candidate.
DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS (MÉDECINS SANS FRONTIÈRES) As proven by Bernard Kouchner's lies & assistance to the Bosnian Moslem ex-Nazi leader this is a nominally charitable body but actually a Nazi & NATO propaganda organisation actively involved in promoting NATO imperialism & genocide
JOHN HUME and DAVID TRIMBLE for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland. Obviously assisting British wishes in Northern Ireland but nonetheless worthy. On the other hand their electors didn't think so & got rid of both of them & both of their parties.
INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO BAN LANDMINES (ICBL) and JODY WILLIAMS for their work for the banning and clearing of anti-personnel mines. Worthy winner, not least because this campaign, while becoming politically sexy enough to attract Princess Di, was actually opposed by the western military who don't like having their toys taken away.
CARLOS FELIPE XIMENES BELO and JOSE RAMOS-HORTA for their work towards a just and peaceful solution to the conflict in East Timor. Yes - the western powers initially happy to have the somewhat leftist Timorese regime exterminated by Indonesia were, half a million deaths later, shamed into supporting independence.
JOSEPH ROTBLAT and to the PUGWASH CONFERENCES ON SCIENCE AND WORLD AFFAIRS for their efforts to diminish the part played by nuclear arms in international politics and in the longer run to eliminate such arms. Worthy though their effectiveness may be questioned.
YASSER ARAFAT , Chairman of the Executive Committee of the PLO, President of the Palestinian National Authority.
SHIMON PERES , Foreign Minister of Israel.
YITZHAK RABIN , Prime Minister of Israel.
No comment needed
NELSON MANDELA Leader of the ANC.
FREDRIK WILLEM DE KLERK President of the Republic of South Africa
Like the Northern Ireland one - for reducing the embarrassment of western leaders.
RIGOBERTA MENCHU TUM, Guatemala. Campaigner for human rights, especially for indigenous peoples. A worthy winner & almost alone in not supporting what western governments wanted done.
AUNG SAN SUU KYI, Burma. Oppositional leader, human rights advocate. Worthy
MIKHAIL SERGEYEVICH GORBACHEV , President of the USSR, helped to bring the Cold War to an end. Worthy in the same way that Trimble & Hume were & like them repudiated by his own people. Still they did give it to him but not to Reagan as well which is something. How much he was the actor & how much merely the guy in place when an inevitable collapse came may be debated.
THE 14TH DALAI LAMA (TENZIN GYATSO) , Feudal overlord who kept serf in Tibet. When the Chinese displaced him he reinvented himself as both a western front man & religious icon for westerners bored with traditional religion.
THE UNITED NATIONS PEACE-KEEPING FORCES New York, NY, U.S.A. There is no such force. There is a UN flag used as a flag of convenience by western or western supported forces from Korea to Kosovo.
OSCAR ARIAS SANCHEZ , Costa Rica, President of Costa Rica, initiator of peace negotiations in Central America. Probably worthy.
ELIE WIESEL , U.S.A., Chairman of 'The President's Commission on the Holocaust'. Author, humanitarian. Wrote a book on the Holocaust which became Oprah's book club selection. Seems a decent guy despite the adulation. The President's Commission seems to be the result not the cause of his importance & it is interesting that the prize committee chose to single it out.
INTERNATIONAL PHYSICIANS FOR THE PREVENTION OF NUCLEAR WAR Boston, MA, U.S.A.
Who can be against preventing nuclear war. Everybody knows doctors are respectable folk which is why Bin Men Against Genocide never won.
DESMOND MPILO TUTU , South Africa, Bishop of Johannesburg, former Secretary General South African Council of Churches (S.A.C.C.). for his work against apartheid. Bishops are respectable folk too.
LECH WALESA , Poland. Founder of Solidarity, campaigner for human rights. Not the saint he was portrayed as when he was so very useful to NATO but nonetheless the cause was just.
The prize was awarded jointly to:
ALVA MYRDAL , former Cabinet Minister, diplomat, delegate to United Nations General Assembly on Disarmament, writer.
ALFONSO GARC�A ROBLES , diplomat, delegate to the United Nations General Assembly on Disarmament, former Secretary for Foreign Affairs . 2 diplomats
OFFICE OF THE UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES Geneva, Switzerland. The UN again
ADOLFO PEREZ ESQUIVEL , Argentina, architect, sculptor and human rights leader. Worthy
MOTHER TERESA , India, Leader of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity. On the one hand clearly a saintly woman on the other hand whether, with her active opposition to birth control, she actually did more harm or good in India is questionable.
The prize was divided equally between:
MOHAMED ANWAR AL-SADAT , President of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
MENACHEM BEGIN , Prime Minister of Israel.
for jointly negotiating peace between Egypt and Israel.
I'd forgotten that Beguin, who was undeniably a terrorist leader before the founding of Israel had got it twice.
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL London, Great Britain. A worldwide organization for the protection of the rights of prisoners of conscience. Who publicised every lie told by NATO/the KLA/the ex-Nazi Bosnian Moslems etc to promote their genocidal wars. Generally to be found pushing any human rights story against people the New World Order want to bomb. To be fair they did, quietly, release a report about kidnapping & selling women in Kosovo.
BETTY WILLIAMS and MAIREAD CORRIGAN Founders of the Northern Ireland Peace Movement (later renamed Community of Peace People). As with Trimble & Hume they did good.
ANDREI DMITRIEVICH SAKHAROV , Soviet nuclear physicist. Campaigner for human rights. Another western favourite. Only inventor of the Hydrogen Bomb to get a Nobel Peace Prize.
The prize was divided equally between:
E�N MAC BRIDE , President of the International Peace Bureau, Geneva, and the Commission of Namibia, United Nations, New York.
EISAKU SATO , Prime Minister of Japan. Diplomats
The prize was awarded jointly to:
HENRY A. KISSINGER , Secretary of State, State Department, Washington.
LE DUC THO , Democratic Republic of Viet Nam. (Declined the prize.)
for jointly negotiating the Vietnam peace accord in 1973.
No further comment necessary
The prize money for 1972 was allocated to the Main Fund.
WILLY BRANDT , Federal Republic of Germany, Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, initiator of West Germany's Ostpolitik, embodying a new attitude towards Eastern Europe and East Germany. Western diplomat whose Ostpolitik did defuse tensions. A major statesman & worthy.
NORMAN BORLAUG , Led research at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, Mexico City. Major figure in the real Green revolution (ie increasing agricultural yields. Not a politician & the most worthy recipient. GRAND Mughal Akbar once remarked he would venerate the person who could grow two blades of grass where one grew previously - this scientist qualifies.
INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANIZATION (I.L.O.) Geneva. Another UN agency
REN� CASSIN , President of the European Court for Human Rights . We have seen recently how corrupt western controlled international "courts" can be.
The difference between what political lobbying achieves & what real evidence & achievement based science does is plain. The "Peace" prize should be ended since it denigrates the real Nobels.
