Thread Name: Revoke Nobel Prize to Henry Kissinger
Subject: RE: Revoke Nobel Prize to Henry Kissinger
Check ALL the laureates as they're correctly called at before you make broad, sweeping judgments. Consider the depressing number of times a prize hasn't been awarded.

Bear in mind that the prize hasn't always had the same status, provincially Scandinavian in some periods... Take into consideration that many of these laureates made considerable contributions to lessening the level of human conflict, not necessarily glory boys and not necessarily resolutions of conflicts; Just good, journeymen work that did well for many...even though we haven't a clue as to who they are today.
