UNESCO awards peace prize to François Hollande for launching a war

Hollande gets UNESCO peace prize for launching a war.

The United Nations cultural agency (UNESCO) has today announced that French president François Hollande will receive its 2013 peace prize "for his valuable contribution to peace and stability in Africa" (read: for unilaterally launching a war in Mali at a time his popularity in France hit an all-time low). 

The Jury was chaired by former Marxist President of MozambiqueJoaquim Chissano

This must be the first time a peace prize is awarded for launching a war. The decision is another reason why the U.S. (and why not also other countries) should withdraw from UNESCO
