Nine Nobel Laureates, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, wrote to NBC to protest the reality show “Stars Earn Stripes.”

“This program pays homage to no one anywhere and continues and expands on an inglorious tradition of glorifying war and armed violence…

“Trying to somehow sanitize war by likening it to an athletic competition further calls into question the morality and ethics of linking the military anywhere with the entertainment industry in barely veiled efforts to make war and its multitudinous costs more palatable to the public,” the nine continued…

The show stars actor Dean Cain, “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince, former WWE champion Eva Torres, former boxer Laila Ali, singer Nick Lachey, former Olympic gold medallist Picabo Street, actor Terri Crews, and Sarah Palin’s husband Todd.
