    Yes but you're an idiot and thankfully, outside of your bedsit, your opinion counts for bugger all.

Don't get me wrong, sexual violence is never acceptable, men have been raping people during wars since time began and unfortunately that will never stop. I'm not sure what these two people actually achieved or how giving them an award actually makes a damned bit of difference, it certainly won't help any of the men women or children who are being raped right now all over the world in wars. He's doing something practical, she's just getting an award for being raped and talking about it.
    Youre actually one very nasty cnt of a so-called woman.

    Nadia Murad is a Yazidi Kurdish human rights activist from Iraq. She is herself "a victim of war crimes. She has shown uncommon courage in recounting her own sufferings and speaking up on behalf of other victims".



    A good decision. At least they didn't honour Laurel and Hardy.

    The Laurel and Hardy thing is every other year. The award is basically folks voting to feel good about themselves. This was my favorite one:

    She, along with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Tawakkul Karman, were awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work."[2][3] In October 2012, she disowned Sirleaf, accusing her of nepotism and doing little for the very poor.
    Don't confuse me with facts; my mind is already made up.

    The tears rush to my eyes when I read how women he helped with his surgical interventions raised money for a plane flight for him by selling onions and other products at the roadside.
    I'm like that with onions as well.. I only have to think about peeling them and my eyes start watering..

    By any standard Mukwege was a worthy winner.

    And when the Yasidis were being hunted down and killed or raped the saviour of the nation Jeremy Corbin MP stood up in the UK parliament and demanded that nothing be done to save them. The Stop the War coalition which he was closely associated with went one further and said that their prediciament was being exaggerated.
