2012 Nominations for the esteemed prize have come out with many notable nominees. Just to name a few of the 230 are; former President Bill Clinton, former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko (hot!), Microsoft founder Bill Gates and former US Army SPC Bradley Manning.
Wait what? Did I read that correctly? A former Specialist in the Army, who stole US Secrets and turned them over to a third party, NON-AMERICAN source is nominated for the Peace Prize. A traitor by definition, whose on a list with people who had access to the same level of information, but knew that you DON’T STEAL SECRETS AND HAND THEM OVER.
Bradley Manning is a piece of shit, first, he wasn’t even in Iraq he was in Kuwait, which is about as tough as being deployed to Fort Irwin California. Second, he was “disturbed” by video showing Iraqi civilians being killed. If he was doing his job as an Intelligence Analyst, he would know this is how the insurgency operated in Iraq…within the civilian population, shit happens. Third being a traitor is not heroic or noble and you can’t confuse a personal hatred of the US Army as a grandiose act of self sacrifice for the truth.
Look, the military sucks, it is full of meatheads and dumbshits, but it’s meatheads and dumbshits who are serving their country. Anybody who was in any military at any time will tell you how miserable it can be. However, Bradley Manning wasn’t drafted, Bradley Manning could have reported his concerns to his superiors and just taken the heat. Bradley Manning could have shut his mouth until he served his time and gotten out.
So the world wants to reward American traitors, is it noble to betray your country? Is it noble to question the actions of troops that you are not serving with? Is it noble to give away information that you have no idea about, compromise the security of national interest, endanger countless lives and and set back years of diplomatic work because you are too disturbed to handle it?
No, he’s a fuck, he doesn’t deserve anything other than an noose around his neck. You hippies can learn to keep your mouths shut once-in-a-while and the Nobel Prize and is now a tarnished piece of garbage.
