"A twist of the Alger myth", Cockburn calls it. You too get to murder
people in far-off places. The prize simply reflects the peace of
graveyards. Wilson got it after the carnage of WWI. Teddy got it after
the Filipino massacre. And of course, as has been pointed out,
Kissinger got it after being part of the murder of millions of
Vietnamese. The bigger the graveyard, the bigger the peace, paving the
way for the 'prize'. The committee must have huge expectations....
