i'm sure many ballots have already been turned in.  quick pitch for 4

doesn't have iran

gets key countries on arab spring literature,

has three countries that offer big impact areas for the aff-egypt syria libya

has the best of the smaller countries

looks delicious

I also really like #4 and #6 (same countries as #4 minus the swap of Yemen in #4 for Lebanon in #6). I think Malgor's reasoning is pretty spot-on

Agreed. 4 and 6, though we had Lebanon last time, let's try out the Yemen debate

#4 is definitely the "Arab Springiest" of all of the topics--all of the counties in #4 currently are going through or have just gone through a democratic revolution.  A resolution with a core event tying all of the topic countries is a rarity...  Core aff areas with big impacts abound, and there is room to go small if you want to.
