Joke of the Day

Taking a break from my work, I'll like to share with everyone a joke I just heard on the news.

Malaysia's Mahathir nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Bosnian NGOs

Report: Malaysia's Mahathir nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Bosnian NGOs

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Malaysia's former premier Mahathir Mohamad has been nominated for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize by four Bosnia-Herzegovina nongovernment groups for being the developing world's "most courageous advocate," a newspaper reported Sunday.

Mahathir influenced the world on ideas about how ethnic diversity should be managed, The Star said, quoting the nomination paper signed by representatives from the Sarajevo School of Science and Technology, the Congress of Bosnik Intellectuals, the Serb Civic Council and the Croat National Council.

Ejup Ganic - chancellor of the Sarajevo School of Science and Technology - worked closely with Mahathir when Malaysia provided humanitarian aid during the 1990s conflict that fractured the former Yugoslavia.

Mahathir is the Third World's "most illustrious contemporary" and its "most courageous advocate," Ganic was quoted as saying.

The groups also hailed Mahathir as a representative of moderate Islam, and for his work as an ambassador for peace in conflict-prone Muslim areas such as southern Thailand, the report said.

Mahathir, 81, retired from public office in 2003 after more than 20 years as Malaysia's prime minister.

His aides were not immediately available Sunday for comment on the report.

Mahathir is well known for his caustic criticism of Western countries and of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

The nomination period for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize closed on Feb. 1. Among others nominated this year were former U.S. Vice President Al Gore for his efforts to create awareness of the dangers of global warming.

The secretive Nobel committee never comments on specific nominations, but members often note that anyone can be nominated.

Last year, there were 191 nominations for the peace prize, which went to Bangladeshi economist Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank he founded to help the poor.

Say "No!" to that antagonist creature from winning any kind of award for PEACE. For godssake, that freak is an antagonist! How could an antagonist be nominated for the Nobel Peace Price? I bet those Bosnians are blind and cooped up in their little own world of Bosnia-Herzegoniva. Let's just think back of all the antagonistic measures that creep took on against us. All the water issues that he like to blow them bigger than proportion, that fiasco of a bridge, pointless, baseless accusations against people of our kind.

What swine is that to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize???
What hog is that to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize???

I concede that that guy is an effective politician (with all the negative connotations to the stereotypical politician too) and a guy who brought greater economy development to the hinterland up north, but but but he failed as a peacemaker. Simple as that. I won't object to a prize like Politician of the Year, or Retired Politician of the Year, or Economic Developer of the Year or whatnots, but PEACE??? Give me a break man...

He better not win the award sia, if not that would be the end of the world liao...

Okay, I need to go back to my work, I'm running late. But this presentation of mine will be a blast man. I'm not going to say that I'll give a good presentation, but the powerpoint slides I'm making now are the best I've ever done in my life. wahaha~ It's supposed to help me cover up my lacking in the speech.

He may not have been too kind towards Singapore on certain occasions, but give the man some credit. He single-handedly placed Malaysia on the world map, he built the country up... and he stood up against America when other world leaders played "yes-man" to the US. Most of all he helped Bosnia during a time of crisis. You may not like him (I am not a fan either)...but give him the respect he deserves. He is a great leader...

indeed he is a great leader (for his country), indeed he stood up against america (even the spineless men in white couldn't), indeed he helped bosnia.


is he a peacemaker worthy of a nobel PEACE prize?
