How can any man who was part of an administration to use bombs to solve problems (In Gore's case, Kosovo War 1999) ever receive a PEACE prize?! I would have understood MAYBE if the end result of that bombing was peace, but instead it created reverse ethnic cleansing where in 8 years 3000 Serbs have been killed, hundreds of churches burned down, and thousands of houses alike. I bet you Gore is not ashamed to be part of that team!
