Ok. Even if I give you that one, you can't dispute Yasser Arafat or Le Duc Tho.

The point being, they don't always give it to the most deserving and many times they don't give it someone that deserves it at all. It's become a worthless award diluted by all of the ones that shouldn't be on the list. I guess if you say the right thing, you'll get an award but you don't really have to back it up. Sometimes, if you fix the problem that you caused you get one too.
