Reader feedback: Slovak ex - pats are hypocrites

Re: Slovakia suffers first casualties in Iraq, Flash news briefs, June 7 - 13, Vol 10, No 22

Most of the people who read this newspaper online are not in Slovakia, and they are foreigners; and maybe what they see of Slovaks is mainly here.

I read the website sometimes, and most of the people who like to claim their "Slovakness" the loudest are the most embarrassing to the country.

I am a Slovak, by the way. I was born here, have lived here for 42 years, pay taxes here, was educated here, and am sick of the know-it-all aging expatriates who ran away 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 years ago always showing up to tell Slovaks what to do, what to think, what to believe, and all the rest.
If they love Slovakia, they should come back. It is easy to toss nonsense at us from a foreign country.
