‘Tis that time of year again. Among the nominees are:

* Jonas Gahr Støre

* Chris Hill

* Tom Fingar

and many more…

“*Vote here*”:http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001zeZbh-1CWb4zBk89qqQ24CJqfKDTu-TjRhMOJbQ3Sq-jOjhfdXCWvGSqtpwf26oM1KcjqKZ6QYVqO9Xjd_15haCIRVIFHJvn7HKyNBpIQQYdy1uOCp8MZpYbMplFNXUbjxyR905fZMnNacPNS9e28fO4qXfxDMXEDX1PgqnRui1Ga–fYqIx8Q.

I am, of course, “predictably biased”:http://cns.miis.edu/stories/081201_canwfz.htm towards the Central Asian legislators.

    The Central Asians probably made a good deal. A brilliant study by Prof. Maoz shows that Israel didn’t benefit much from its nuclear weapons. The damage, however, is clear: no nuclear power plants, probably triggering the 1967 and 1973 wars and of course feeding the culturally embedded xenophobia.

    I wouldn’t vote for Chris Hill. I admit I didn’t follow the negotiations with North Korea but it seems that whenever the NK agreed to something the US interpreted this as a sign of weakness and unilaterally changed the rules of the game forcing NK to quit. Neocon strivings for absolute dominance typically led to human disasters and political stalemates.
