Reader feedback: Yes to Nato

RE: Vote NATO, but vote, Editorial, Vol 9, No 2, Jan 20 to 26

I think NATO is one reason for the stability and prosperity of western Europe. Slovaks will probably vote yes for Nato membership [if there is a referendum]. Membership in Nato is also certain security for Slovakia not returning to a totalitarian regime. If a politician like Mečiar is still so popular in Slovakia then democracy is still fragile, therefore NATO membership makes sense to me.
