Aber für Vernunft gibts keinen Nobelpreis
Carter hätte ihn nicht verdient.
Zitat: â€œCarter was the least violent of American presidents but he did things which I think would certainly fall under Nuremberg provisions,â€ said Noam Chomsky.

Zitat: "It was because, whether in Afghanistan, Iran, or Iraq â€” still the source of so many of our woes â€” the Carter administration could not tell a friend from an enemy. His combination of naÃ¯vetÃ© and cynicism â€” from open-mouthed shock at Leonid Brezhnevâ€™s occupation of Afghanistan to underhanded support for Saddam in his unsleeping campaign of megalomania â€” had terrible consequences that are with us still. Itâ€™s hardly an exaggeration to say that every administration since has had to deal with the chaotic legacy of Carterâ€™s mind-boggling cowardice and incompetence."
