    Well, my understanding was that his ricin delivery system had him on the short list for the medical prize.

    I could not care less. I am just glad he is not in it.

    The "peace prize" hasn't been relevant of anything other than to show the world the glaring bias in the Noble commissions for decades....Maybe they can posthumously give it to Stalin for his peaceful eradication of dissenters during his time.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Really? I don't know anyone who would take the Peace Prize seriously.

    But OK, I changed my mind:

    I think it should go to Bashir al-Assad.

    He easily could ignore all that silly talk about chemical weapons and red lines, but, a natural-born peacenik and humanitarian that he is, he accepted the bitter option of letting some hostile foreigners to grab and destroy a part of his hard-earned civil-war arsenal.

    Really, put yourself into his shoes: Here I am, a totalitarian dictator, son of my father, father of my nation, etc, etc - and I can kill those who oppose me only with bullets, grenades, rockets, swords, spears, guillotines, knives, stones, lethal injections, iron bars, thousands of other sharp or blunt, projectile or not objects and substances - but not a poison gas?

    What utter humiliation.

    But the man made the titanic effort, suppressed his pride, and serves now as an example to all humanity, in the department of conflict resolution.

    Oh, come on, that was a different KGB department, long time ago, and they have run into serious QC problems after the weaponized umbrella production was outsourced to North Korea.

    Scientific superpowers like the Putin's Russia use only scientifically super-powerful stuff, like polonium -210.

    Two heads are better than one and it paid off for the three of them.
    Suedhof said while he and his fellow prize winners had worked separately they had met each other "many, many times." They had "argued and sometimes agreed and sometimes disagreed," he said with a laugh.
