Fighting for Peace - Nobel Prize for Peace

A propaganda selling "fighting for peace" or a political agenda comprising peace arouses suspicion in anybody who ever lived in a country managed by socialists, whether international or national breed of them notwithstanding. "FOR SOCIALISM AND PEACE" was a favorite slogan of the Communists - usually exhibited on their favorite ministry in the countries they ruled (i.e. on ministry of secret police). Both Hitler and Stalin used this slogan during their aggressive wars. What about fighters for peace who have been rewarded for their fight with a Nobel prize? Some are mentioned below with the year they were granted the prize.

1944: International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) "for their humanitarian activities"; during WWII, the ICRC cooperated with the Nazis, and after their visit in the concentration camp in Theresienstadt (Terezin), they acknowledged that the Nazis treated the Jews well.
1971: Willy Brandt, German chancellor, "for a new attitude toward Eastern Europe and East Germany"; Brandt was forced to resign after his closest aides had been exposed as agents of Stasi (the East German secret police).
1973: Le Duc Tho, a high representative of the Vietnam communist hierarchy, "for his efforts in negotiating the peace agreement with the US"; the agreement was violated by the communists, the whole of South Vietnam was annexed, and its population reeducated, whereas hundreds of thousands did not survive the reeducation, and many are imprisoned until now.
1990: M. Gorbachev, president of the Soviet Union, "for his efforts in ending the cold war"; he became a member of the Communist party during the Stalin era, and he was fighting tooth and nail for saving the Soviet Union; he continued the Afghan war, and during his era - the worst industrial catastrophe ever happened in Chernobyl; he resigned on further efforts to save the Soviet Union after having realized inferiority of the Soviet technology; he played a dubious role in the coup attempt of "conservative forces" in 1992.
1992: Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Guatemalan indigenous woman, "in recognition of her life and work for the rights of indigenous peoples" as described in one anthropologist's bestseller; in 1998 it turned out that everything in said bestseller was fabricated.
1994: Yasser Arafat, Chairman of the PLO, "for his efforts to create peace in the Middle East"; Arafat was further interesting by owning a harem of young boys, and by murdering hundreds of people in many terrorist attacks, including eleven sportsmen during the Olympic games in 1972.
2001: Kofi Annan, U.N. Secretary-General, "for his work for a better organized and more peaceful world"; Annan is best known, except for giant corruption and financial scandals under his control, for his forbidding the U.N. military units in Rwanda to protect massacred civilians in 1994, whereby enabling the murder of 800,000 Tutsis – he acknowledged his responsibility ("sorry I didn't do more").
2002: Jimmy Carter, former US president, "for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance human rights, and to promote economic and social development"; he is known as the worst of all US presidents, becoming notorious for leaving 52 American diplomats in hands of Iranian militants for 444 days, as well as for exhibiting the worst economic performance – with the highest inflation in the US history.
2007: Al Gore and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change"; Al Gore and IPCC members created for themselves lucrative jobs as prophets of modest life and saving; Gore was convicted of opulence and waste, and the IPCC of fabricating facts.
2009: President Barack Obama, "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples…Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics...Thanks to Obama's initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting." Beside creating a new political climate and fighting the climate change, Obama has de-legitimized the anti-terrorist politics of his own country. From his young age, his associates included solely extremists, like the Communist poet Frank Marshall Davis, fanatic rev. Jeremiah Wright who charged the U.S. government with inventing the AIDS virus in order to kill the black people, the former terrorist Bill Ayers, and the pro-Soviet activist Alice Palmer.
