Forced Peace Prize

Frit reads that the latest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, left-leaning teacher and UN payroll enjoyer Martti Ahtisaari, “is best known for having his name attached to an agreement — the famous “Ahtisaari Plan” for the final status of Kosovo — to which the concerned parties, Serbia and the formerly merely provisional government of Kosovo, never in fact agreed. In the meanwhile, that plan is quite simply being imposed on one of the parties: namely Serbia, which has thereby seen a large chunk of its territory forcibly removed from its authority”. Never mind. Perhaps all his other grand peaceful doings have involved less implementation at gunpoint.
