Commenting article: NATO Spokesperson: Outcome of Passy's Nomination Will Be Known in April

Bulgaria's Solomon Passy has as many chances to become the new NATO Secretary General as any of the other candidates, the Alliance's spokesperson, James Appathurai, said Friday.

Appathurai made the statement during a video-conference with Bulgarian journalists. He said that the final selection was most likely going to become known around the time of the NATO summit in April in Strasbourg.

The NATO summit will mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Alliance and will be a celebration of the return of France in the NATO structures since leaving them in 1966.

"Bulgaria's Solomon Passy has as many chances to become the new NATO Secretary General as any of the other candidates, the Alliance's spokesperson, James Appathurai, said Friday."

Translation from dyplomatic language - "Your guy has no chance whatsoever and I dont understand why he put his candidature in a first place."

The article says: "Any candidate will receive the same consideration as the others."

Sure, as long as he/she masters the French language.

Just my two stotinki

and this is partly because the westerners have just started to understand how deep the old commies and their secret services have infiltrated the eastern european countries business and governing bodies.

After this news: "The new chief of the Hungarian secret services, who spent six years at the K.G.B.’s academy in Moscow during the 1980s, in January became the chairman of NATO’s intelligence committee, a rotating post that is held for a year."

I think Passy has no chance at all, given that his father was a prominent commie and he himself is linked to BG "businessmen" close to the commie government like Krumov.

CreepyS,

You wrote: "The new chief of the Hungarian secret services, who spent six years at the K.G.B.’s academy in Moscow during the 1980s, in January became the chairman of NATO’s intelligence committee, a rotating post that is held for a year."

What's the problem?

Intelligence is just a profession.

Six years? Well, the guy must be skilled.

Uncle P is no more a frecking commie, but a tough guy with personal integrity trying to make the wheels rolling. We should appreciate that and stop all that commie paranoia.

Lets bet - I bet 20 euros that Passy is out of competition.

Al,

Uncle P is a tough guy keeping the wheels rolling towards achieving the ultimate goals of the communist’s ideology. There is no place for personal integrity in society where one has to serve only in the interest of the collective-- as interpreted by the Party and its glorious leaders. Glorifying personal traits is deemed dangerous and decadent. This makes Uncle P a commie. Acknowledging this fact is not a demonstration of paranoia but of coming to terms with the past. Denial only complicates things.

On the other hand you, Al, speak as a rotten bourgeoisie who has no appreciation for a hero like Comrade P. lol
