Nobel Prize to Myanmar monks

I would love to see the peace prize go to the buddhist monks in Burma who launched the recent demonstrations and marches. That is what nonvioent peace making is all about. It would send a message to the junta and would express support and solidarity of the international community in a way that the UN Sec. Council is unable to do as long as China and Russia don't lean on the junta. However, I imagine the revolt came too late for this year's consideration, so maybe they could win next year?

The Nobel Prize must be awarded to the democracy defenders.
