Liu Xiaobo for Peace?

Liu Xiabo, courtesy of the Nobel Foundation, photo: Bi YiminThe Western Confucian draws our attention this year's Nobel Peace Laureate's support for war.

It seems this year's Nobel Peace Laureate in absentia is a supporter of hard Wilsonianism. Well, the Norwegian Nobel Committee's support for such is nothing new under the sun.

BTW, the article linked to also includes an attack on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. The late Russian's support for more American fighting in Vietnam seems to be an issue. Although there are severe problems with America's involvement in Vietnam, a discussion on which we will leave here, it is important to keep in mind that Solzhenitsyn was not a Nobel Peace Laureate.
