Reader feedback: Mečiar represents light and freedom

Slovakia does not need the EU ["EU convention draws Slovakia into debate on Union future," By Deirdre Tynan, March 11-17, Vol.8, No.9]. Slovakia does not need Nato. Why are foreigners always interfering in Slovak events? If Slovakia joins Nato, Slovak soldiers will be sent to Afghanistan. If Slovakia joins the EU, Slovak people will be treated like slaves and pick apples in Dutch orchards! Slovak nurses are already cleaning bed pans and toilets in Dutch hospitals. Remember what happened to East Germany? East Germany is treated like a backward province of Germany!

Life becomes more strange every day. The political situation of Slovakia is becoming like a science fiction movie. Maybe Star Wars, in which each politician wants to be a movie star. They hate each other and start wars. Mečiar is like Obi Wan Kenobi - An elder statesman who represents light and freedom. Mečiar will guide Slovakia into dignity, if we give him a chance!

Dzurinda, on the other hand, is Darth Vader - A man who was once good but has chosen to follow the dark side! And Robert Fico is Kermit the Frog - a puppet that toadies to globalisation and crony capitalism! One hop forward and three hops back!

I am a foreigner, but I don't want to see Slovakia turn into a sitcom.
