When we talk about war, we're really talking about peace

The Guy Fawkes blog highlights this piece about the Nobel Peace Prize. It seems that nominees for the 2004 prize include President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair. Adolf Hitler and former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic have also made it to the list.

Jan Simonsen, a right-wing independent member of Norway's parliament who nominated Bush and Blair shortly after the U.S.-led war toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in April is quoted as saying:

"Even though they haven't found those weapons they got rid of a dictator and made the world more safe. They got rid of a madman."

I am still trying to decide if the piece is satire or not.
