    None of the cities. Italy and Spain are a joke. Japan needs to recover and Istanbul, well it still is nowhere as it thinks it is. You know what even the US, UK or other European powers can't considering the times. India is yer to recover from the Commonwealth scam. Beijing anyone?

    Why Baku?
    • It is a oil rich country flush with funds.
    • It is not a western democracy where progress and construction work can be stymied by litigation.
    • It is also going to take care of disruptive irritants like protests with an iron hand.
    • It can ensure good security, given that it is friendly with Russia and can get the KGB to help its security services.
    • It is located at a place that is neither too hot nor cold.
    • It offers excellent tourist attractions close by, such as the Fire Temple, old fortresses like in Derbent, in neighbouring Dagestan, cruise on the Caspian Sea and a visit to see the Caspian Sea Monster, i.e. the Ekranoplans.
    • Its location is more or less central to most participating countries.
