These poll choices are so out of date. The only ones on that poll that are likely to be serious contenders are Tokyo and Buenos Aires.

I think Turkey would be a good canadite (though with imperfections). With it going to London though in 2016 I don't see it happening. I would bet it on being the first Muslim and Middle Eastern (depending on your which geography you want to use) to host (and sometime relatively soon).

That doesn't make any sense
How can you say we don't recognize countries?
What does that mean???

I didn't know Tyrkey was a country. What imperfections are you referring to? You have to be more specific and not make such general comments.

Lol, I love Copenhagen being in that poll Rather unlikely, though. I'm hoping for either 2020 or 2024 in Copenhagen. 2016 won't be in Europe, I'm almost sure of that (can't say definitely, as surprises do occur). I think the US will win it, Chicago seems like a good choice, but personally I'd like it more in San Francisco.

so, San Francisco 2016 for me

In the actual race, NYC is not a candidate for the 2016 Olympics.

New Delhi, India

New Delhi is investing quite a lot of money in improving its infrastructure for 2010 CommonWealth games. $2 billion has already been invested in a modern metro/subway network which currently covers 65 km; an additional $2 billion will be invested to extend it to 115 km before 2010. The international airport has been privatized and phase-1 of its modernization will be completed before 2010 at a cost of $1 billion.

ALL public transport buses/taxis run on natural gas to minimize pollution. The city roads are being upgraded; expressways connecting it to the fast growing suburbs of Gurgaon/Noida and beyond have been constructed/are under construction as part of the ambitious Golden Quadrilateral national highway program. Stadiums are being upgraded/constructed. The New Delhi suburbs of Gurgaon/Noida are growing fast as an investment destination for IT and manufacturing companies.

By 2010, New Delhi will be a changed city when it hosts the Commonwealth games. India is planning to build on this and bid for the 2016 Olympics. It will be interesting to see how it fares in this ambitious bid.

Whether it wins in 2016 or not, it makes logical sense to host Olympics sometime in future for the 2nd fastest growing economy in the world (8.4% in 2005), 2nd largest country in terms of population, and one of the world's oldest civilizations. By 2020, India can be one of the top 5 economies in the world, up from #10 in 2005. Things will be quite different then.

remind me, when did China recognice Tibet as a free and independent country?

I get what you say, and agree with it...But many of the thing you can mantion about Turkey that should exclude them, you can also say about China. Granted China has been moving in the right direction in tha last many years, whereas Turkey has not. Also, China has 1.5 billion people and the IOC and the sponsors cant wait to tap into that market. Turkey is more deleloped and it wont make the same impact for the sponsors to have it there, nor for IOC, as they already know the olympics there....

So from a strictly moral standpoint, we have already crossed the line. However, i still dont think that Turkey should or indeed will be chosen...But ofcouse, I didnt thnk China should have been chosen either...
