Why On Earth?

Iran seizes rights lawyer's Nobel Peace Prize.

Um. I'm pretty sure everyone will still know she won it.

If they want one that badly, the mullahs have only to give a speech in Berlin about stopping the ocean's rise to win it next time around.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee's permanent secretary, Geir Lundestad, said the move was "unheard of" and "unacceptable." He told The Associated Press that the committee was planning to send a letter of protest to Iranian authorities before the end of the week.
Ooo, letter of protest. Because what tyrant can possibly withstand the disapproval of 5 Norwegians?
