I concur with Martti Ahtisaari

Who’s Martti Ahtisaari? He’s the former Finnish president, and he has just been announced at this year’s recipient for the Nobel Peace Prize.

To quote the CNN article on the points with which I concur:

  • “We cannot go on, year after year, simply pretending to do something to help the situation in the Middle East. We must also get results.”
  • “Peace is a question of will. Wars and conflicts are not inevitable,” he said, arguing that they are caused by people who have something to gain from them. “All conflicts can be settled.”

Let

There

Be

Peace

On

Earth

Thank you for your work, Martti Ahtisaari.
