Tipperary Peace Award Conumdrum - the U.S. State Dept thanks you

To put it politely, not everyone could agree with Tipperary Peace Convention's choice for this years 'Peace Prize'.  It went to John Kerry, U.S.  Secretary of State.

How the judges came to this controversial, somewhat contradictory decision is difficult to fathom.  Considering they have given a peace award to the Secretaryof State of a country actively involved in catastrophic wars in the Middle East, perpetuating the everlasting 'War on Terrorism', involved in 'Rendition' and torture,   creating, supporting, arming and training terrorists,  proliferating the use of drones to bomb innocent targets, using uranium depleted weapons and massing possibly one of mightiest military buildups this century has seen, surrounding Russia and China. 

They probably couldn't give it to the President Obama since he already won the Noble Peace Prize in 2009.  My what a peaceful administration the U.S. has!

Imagine any peace prize going to anyone responsible for $150 billions arms sale to Saudi Arabia.  This is the amount of arms sold to Saudi Arabia alone while President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have been in power.  See the article Kingdom of the Unjust Behind the U.S. - Saudi Connection for enlightenment.
