Reader feedback: Troops out

Re: Bomb hits Slovak embassy, Volume 11, Number 24, June 20-June 26, 2005

Slovakia should withdraw its troops from Iraq. NATO membership itself has brought no benefit to the ordinary people of Slovakia and to participate in such a war can only expose it to unnecessary danger.

NATO itself has lost its purpose with the end of the Cold War, except as a tool of reckless and aggressive US expansionism.

Slovakia should not act as a satellite of the US but try to assert an independent stance. The illegality and dubious ethics of this conflict aside, what economic interests does Slovakia have there?
