Letter to the Editor

Now Washington, London, and Brussels can deploy yet more unemployed Slovak youths to clear mines in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Balkans, and whichever war zones NATO has planned for the near future in the Middle East, the Caucasus, Asia, and beyond.

In addition, of course, to the US ambassador to NATO, Nicholas Burns, and Bruce Jackson of the US Committee on NATO purging the Slovak armed forces, intelligence services, political parties, and even the federal judiciary as it has done in Bulgaria, Macedonia, and elsewhere.

But of course Ambassador Burns has already dictated to the Slovak people who they can and cannot vote for and which Slovak political parties can and cannot enter the cabinet.

Lastly, Slovakia's airbases, barracks, and transport facilities will be turned over to the US and NATO for attacks against other nations and peoples.

All in the name of "shared Transatlantic values."

Shakespeare is often ridiculed for writing of a Port of Bohemia. Where does Slovakia have its Atlantic port?
