In yet another blow for (*or to) Progressive Management and Cooperation, the leaders of the hobby of Diplomacy ("Ruining friendships since 1959") has decided to appoint Chris Martin (nick named-Dancing Queen — but not in the San Francisco meaning, not that there is anything wrong with that) also known as "he who shall never be supported into Belgium." as the new Chief of the North American Diplomacy Federation.
The main requirement was that he was the one person who unanimously was agreed that "all of us would gladly and repeatedly stab him without loss of conscience or goodwill so as to demonstrate both the promotion of good play and to gain a supply center or three."
The secondary requirement was that he has a pulse and not sober enough to actually refuse the …hmmmmm… honor (we all would rather have Belgium) and… well… prestige (though we might have to read that part of the orders ourselves to make sure it said prestige and not something rude like Army Venice to Trieste).
All HAIL the new Chief of the NADF!
