"Peace prize winner 'could kill' Bush"
July 25, 2006
NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W.Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren...
"I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent," said Ms Williams, 64. "Right now, I would love to kill George Bush." Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.
Can they take away the Nobel peace award from Williams? Just rescind the honor. Please? Isn't this just a bit over the top to wish a U.S. President dead? Did she give any speeches wishing Saddam Hussein dead? Osama bin Laden? Why President Bush? And why do the peace-lovers of the world seem so...un-peaceful?
