...and in the Czech Republic

Czech Prime Minister Václav Klaus on October 3 said the Czech Republic should accept the deployment of nuclear weapons on its territory if it becomes a member of NATO, Czech media reported. "It's not possible to play the (passenger) who rides on a tram but does not pay the fare," he told reporters, while visiting a 14 nation military exercise in Moravia. Klaus also said there is no need for a referendum on NATO membership, as unlike joining the EU, it does not involve giving up any state sovereignty. Five NATO members and nine countries in the Partnership for Peace program are taking part in the "Cooperative Challenge" exercise, the largest held in the Czech Republic since the end of communist rule and designed to simulate a UN peacekeeping operation. >Steve Kettle
