(Newser) – In the wake of the US military intervention in Libya, Bolivian President Evo Morales thinks it's time to take back President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize. On Hot Air, Allahpundit begs to differ. Despite Morales' insistence that no Nobel Peace Prize winner should lead "a gang to attack and invade," Allahpundit points out that Morales "has no problem with gangs attacking anyone, as long as they’re attacking for the 'right reasons.' He’s spouting pro-Gadhafi propaganda here, pure and simple."

And there are other less-deserving winners: "Until the Peace Prizes for Arafat and Iranian nuclear stooge Mohamed ElBaradei are revoked, I don’t want to hear anything about Obama’s. He may have been undeserving of the award, but at least he’s not antithetical to it," Allahpundit continues. In his Nobel lecture, Obama acknowledged the dilemma of using war to establish peace. "Whether war can achieve peace is a separate question from whether the war in Libya can achieve peace, but ... Morales himself seems to believe that Gadhafi steamrolling civilians better serves the cause of 'human rights and self-determination' than intervention."

Kokuaguy "externded comment" disappeared from this page. Perhaps 6 hours ago.This is truly bizarre. It was quite long, and at one time it was featured on the "story page" as one of the three most recent. Shortly after that it was "removed" but not in the prescribed way -- it was simply "erased" as if it never existed. Others must have seen it. Please post here if you did. It mentioned proud_prude having been blocked from leaving comments, and the fact that she intends to leave comments all over Huffington Post about the "unfair and incompetent moderation" on newser. Now, I'll flag this to make sure the mods see it and we'll see if they deep six this one as well. Look for kokuaguy to be banned from newser next.
