Sounds strange that response team wouldn't be necessary. The world can't just rely on four to five nations. Bulgaria should be ready to provide such assistance. Bulgaria is located in active earthquake zone itself, having personnel with practical relief experience would be priceless (if the humanitarian side of it is not enough) in a crisis.
No wonder the Bulgarian candidate for EC is not prepared to lead the EU's combined humanitarian aid and crisis response efforts. How could she be ready, coming from a country with no experience in the matter?
Good for M-tel, at least the corporate structure of Bulgaria is in the 21 century. We want to be part of the most developed bits of the world, yet still performing like we are halve way asleep!
Hey Guy, thanks for reminding B. Borisov how democracy works. I mean just cause we can’t stand x-commies, x-czars, and unconstitutional ethno centric political structures (with a liberal stand, which is somewhat positive) in Bulgaria doesn’t mean we can accuse them of getting together and stirring up some trash. It might be in their great political interest, but nay the democratic process is more important (and I am serious about the last one). It might get ugly before it gets better, but democracy really does work. Thanks Guy Verhofstadt, just don’t ask me to pronounce your last name, which would be undemocratic.
Can they give her some experience dealing with parliamentary rug battles too? Just go to Haiti and start helping with the real crisis already, and some humanitarian aid "made in Bulgaria" might help as well.
I thought Turkey was a secular democracy and NATO member state?! What’s with the cozying to Iran and likes?
We all know Turkey’s own record on human rights; just remember the Kurds, Armenians, and Greeks who live in Turkey (all citizens). Should I go to Cyprus? Israel is about the only democracy in the Middle East, and the haters just can’t get over it.
Hey Errr-DOG-an, give people some democracy and rights in Turkey, it really works!
Baroso should send Jeleva to Haiti right now so we can all see if she can do the job or not. Sure as hell people in Haiti might appreciate that better that the political wrestling in the corridors of EP.
It would be interesting to hear the European Commissioner-designate for humanitarian aid and crisis response talk about Haiti and what will the EC do there at present. The crisis is going on right now, and I am not talking about the EP hearings. Response is necessary right now!
There was a very good question on that hearing, though: Why Bulgaria does not have much presence when it comes to humanitarian aid? Maybe Jeleva should do more about that, commissioner or not, the GERB party won the elections, and they have to make this conscious decision. Sending humanitarian aid to Haiti right now, with Jeleva as coordinator, might finally boost her credentials for the job. Something like…I am not good at interviews, but you should see me in action.
Listen moron I don’t give a damn who you really are. You are a dimwit who likes to stir up some shait at Bulgarian foreign language forums, probably then to use it for some even sleazier bulshait. What I was saying is that WSJ and Moody’s opinions hold more water than your poor observation, and I bet your brown spot underpants you don’t have a clue how people live in North Korea (and what it takes to do so). You are a privileged moron who thinks that Bulgaria starts with Stalin (or GULag), and ends with Jeleva’s EP hearing. Just retarded!!!! I am sure you believe in the positive effect the colonizing power brings to the conquered nation, and other imperial and Nazi halve wisdom.
The fcuk heads Faustus and r4maniac would not stop spitting venom at this forum. Like Jeleva is the only corrupt, dumb politician in Europe. Just admit it; you hate Bulgaria, Bulgarians, and everything about Bulgaria. Just can’t stand us! Somebody should take some courses in tolerance, understanding of foreign cultures. I guess some people are just haters, who like to sit around and hate.
Moody’s and Wall Street Journal, two of the most respected financial and economic data and analysis provides worldwide are telling you otherwise.
Oh, and by the way you are not a doctor Dr. Faust!
