Peace prize winner 'could kill' Bush

Peace prize winner 'could kill' Bush | World Wide Weird | The Australian

You know, after a while, even the blindest Bush supporters have to ask themselves, what is it about this man that makes so many people angry? Simple answer...the last 5 years.
"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.

Campaigning on the rights of young people at the Earth Dialogues forum, being held in Brisbane, Ms Williams spoke passionately about the deaths of innocent children during wartime,
particularly in the Middle East, and lambasted Mr Bush.

'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.

'I don't know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize, because when I see children die the anger in me is just beyond belief. It's our duty as human beings, whatever age we are, to become the protectors of human life.' "
UPDATE: Here's the kind of picture (via billmon, warning: GRAPHIC) that inspires this kind of anger.
