Nobel Peace Prize?

Is the Nobel Peace Prize worth anything anymore?

As I sit here and think about El Baradei and the UN agency he heads up (IAEA) I cannot think of one concrete thing that they have accomplished which would merit the Nobel Peace Prize.

Apparently this has something to do with their work as it relates to N. Korea and Iran. Last time I checked nothing positive has happened in relation to these two countries.

So what is the award for? Well I will let you read the quotes for yourself.

The Nobel committee said ElBaradei and the IAEA should be recognized for addressing one of the greatest dangers facing the world.

"At a time when the threat of nuclear arms is again increasing, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to underline that this threat must be met through the broadest possible international cooperation. This principle finds its clearest expression today in the work of the IAEA and its director general.


And what did El Baradei himself say?

"The award basically sends a very strong message, which is: Keep doing what you are doing," ElBaradei said. "It's a responsibility but it's also a shot in the arm. They want to give the agency and me a shot in the arm to move forward."


It is amazing to read the last two quotes. For me personally it sums up my problem with the multilateral approach which is mainly nothing ever seems to get done.

On the other hand they (the supporters of the multilateral approach) love to pat themselves on the back for "trying".

Results don't matter it seems...the process is more important.
