Uh, about that “peace” prize

posted in moonbats |

Filing this one under “moonbats”. Seems Nobel peace laureate Betty Williams, recently had this to say:

“Right now, I would love to kill George Bush.” Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.

Think she’s going to use her award as a club? There’s more that’s a bit concerning in the article but I don’t know if it’s a lack of proper editing or bad fact checking?

“My job is to tell you their stories,” Ms Williams said of a recent trip to Iraq.
“We went to a hospital where there were 200 children; they were beautiful, all of them, but they had cancers that the doctors couldn’t even recognise. From the first Gulf War, the mothers’ wombs were infected.
“As I was leaving the hospital, I said to the doctor, ‘How many of these babies do you think are going to live?’
“He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘None, not one’. They needed five different kinds of medication to treat the cancers that the children had, and the embargoes laid on by the United States and the United Nations only allowed them three.”

*bolding added by me*

Now, what I’m confused about is this: Did the visit occur before America toppled Saddam, in which case the real culprit of the lack of medicine was Saddam or if the visit was recent, then there’s no embargo and all medicines can be imported and the reporter should of reported that. It does appear that the trip was after Saddam’s fall by the use of the word “recently” by Williams. If that’s the case where is the followup by the reporter asking Williams if she was aware that there was no medicinal embargo on Iraq?
Regardless, it’s a shame that Bush Derangment Syndrome has so infected so called “intellectual elite” that peace prize winners are talking about how they want to commit murder.
