NATO troops and bases not welcome in Slovakia and Czech Republic

NATO troops and bases not welcome in Slovakia and Czech Republic | Czech Army in the world | Scoop.it
Two Eastern European nations, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, have refused to host foreign troops and military bases. The prime ministers of both countries have consecutively spoken against the proposal voiced by US President Barack Obama.
Dominik Bláha's insight:

I personally share the opinion that there is no need to have foreign troops on our territory. We have enough soldiers of our own army. But on the other side I understand the fear of Poland, Latvia and other countries closer to Russia.

To reduce the army's dependence on Russia, the ministry has made several agreements with the Czech Republic and Poland.
Dominik Bláha's insight:

Less dependency on Russia is good thing when Russia is presented as the evil. Even though I don't believe Slovakia's army means much in bigger scale it should be at least operational, right?

Taliban killed ten foreign tourists from China, Russian, Ukraine Worst incident of terrorism ... | Czech Army in the world | Scoop.it

"I want to leave this bastard land of the Taliban for any other country, even for a desert", said a source when he told eTN about the killing of 10 foreign tourists as the worst incident of terrorism against tourists in his country.

Dominik Bláha's insight:

I'm scooping this because of the mention on the end about 2 Czech girls kidnaped in spring 2013.
I'm adding that as i read in other magazine (czechinsider.cz), according to former MI6 officer Richard Barrett it doesn't look like work of Taliban but some local group. So there might be a chance of getting them back.
