Blair: Man of the Decade

"British Prime Minister Tony Blair was awarded the title "Statesman of the Decade" by an international organization.

A spokesman for the institute said the award, last given to German chancellor Helmut Kohl in the 1990s, was in recognition of Blair's leadership and vision in addressing crises and challenges in the Balkans, Iraq, Africa and elsewhere.

The brochure drawn up for the occasion pointed to his achievement in completing negotiations for the 1998 peace agreement in Northern Ireland and shuttle diplomacy he carried out to help form and maintain a coalition after the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States."

I always thought that this man is so smart and intelligent. Despite the desperate miserable situation with regard to the statemen in Egypt, but part of the merits of globalization is looking for great figures around the world to admire. There is always a room to smell roses and see daises even if you are among weeds. Photo by AFP.

Brits make a very smart politicians. They impress me with language, particularly PM Tony Blair.

I wish he was Egyptian. If we had a person who has third or quarter his smartness and intelligence, we would not have been where we are now. And above all, he will offered the golden chance to rule for life:)

In Britain, we don't think Blair is wonderful at all. Quite the opposite. But perhaps the others are worse. One thing that helps is that he knows he can lose the next election if he performs badly.

Well Don,

At least you admitted that if he performs badly he is out. In my country, it does not make any difference. The more corrupt you are, the better, cause you can join the big gangs.

In Britain, the people has a say...this is a big bless, do not underestimate it even if you disagree with a statesman.
