If an invasion in Iraq takes place it would be appropriate to withhold the prize.

It's easier to pick up who won't be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize... Not George W. Bush, not Saddam Hussein, not Kim Jong Il, not Slobodan Milosevic and the guys who killed Zoran Djindjic yesterday.

I think the award should be awarded anyway. Maybe to one of the many non-government organizations that work against poverty, famine or illiteracy, like christian missionaries acting in Africa and Asia, or the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh founder Muhammad Yunus.

I agree with Gauss,
a prize in this era is misplaced
Time is on our side ...

I don't hope so.
The Nobel Prize for Peace is a bit absurd indeed. Guys like Arafat and Israel's president each got one and it's not at all peaceful in the Middle East. :(
