Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

On Jan. 20, 2007, U.S. officials made a formal proposal to the new Czech government, offering to establish an American-run BMD radar system on Czech territory.

What it doesn't mention is that it was just two hours after the govermnent passed vote of confidence in parliament (thanks to two opposition members who voted for it)

Unfortunately, the population is being conditioned that whoever doesn't support this is "stupid", "communist" (manifestation of repolarised binary communist thinking) or a "coward". Op-eds on Russian objections to it are sweeping it away them with "you ruled here for 40 years so now shut up". And babbling something about "transatlantic bridge".

And hey, "It's just a radar"
