Chilean President Michelle Bachelet will nominate rescued Colombian hostage Ingrid Betancourt for the Nobel Peace Prize. Betancourt says she forgave her captors and is pledging to work for a peaceful end to Colombia's five-decade guerrilla war.
Does she deserve it???? I think she doesn't. For being kidnnaped for 6 years???
Many foreigners do not realise that Mrs Betancourt is an opportunist, any chance she gets to be in the press she will take it... and believe me she is going to use this one!
Now she wants to be the contemporary mother Theresa, do not forget that she was not taken away by the guerillas, she went to them to be taken away... I am sure she is having a blast now with all the press she is getting, how funny that she is suddendly so healthy and the suppoused anorexia is gone... besides what can you expect from the daughter of a beauty queen?
Many Colombians hope that she stays in her adopted country, france for the rest of her existence!
Absolutely not!!! what in a hell has she done for peace in the world other than being captive due to her stupidity after she was told not to go where she was made captive. Once again NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
stupid women michelle and ingrid, should not be presidents or presidential candidates, they should be at home taking care of their children and husbands needs. women should not work.
No. She doesn't.
yes she does...all of you are short minded.The nobel preace prize is not only for what she has done but for what she represents, she represents liberty, freedom, she represnets that the only way to get peace is by democracy, by speaking freely.We, at Colombia, need this prize so we can make our conflict better heard and understood.We deserve this price to show the world that there are still womans, latin womans that, even under the worst circumstances, fight for peace, with peace.
She didn't, youpee!
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2008 to Martti Ahtisaari. Not Ingrid that is a fake heroin.
