Aung San Suu Kyi, return your Nobel Prize!

Following the UN report that calls for top military figures in Myanmar to be investigated for genocide in Rakhine state, I think that that Myanmar's de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, should at least be stripped of her Peace Nobel Prize for failing to intervene and to stop these crimes.

She sure isn't the first Nobel laureate to stir controversy. Others, like Henry Kissinger, Yasir Arafat and even Barack Obama have been criticized for being awarded that prestigious prize.

Yet, the Nobel Committee, made up of Norwegian citizens appointed by the country’s Parliament, has never rescinded a prize and is unlikely to intervene against Aung San Suu Kyi either.

Well, that's too bad and certainly not a good reflection of what the Nobel Peace Prize should stand for.
