Final Word from Tuesday, October 30, 2007

It's probably premature to paraphrase R.E.M. and belt out, "It's the end of the radar as we know it, and we all feel fine." However, even some of those in the pro-radar faction started losing their religion when Washington and Moscow went above their heads and tried to plot the return of Russian soldiers to hallowed Czech ground. The diplomatic brouhaha is double punishment for the government of Mirek Topolánek. On the one hand, 14 EU countries allegedly voted against the CR's candidacy on the U.N. Security Council (according to MP Lubomír Zaorálek of ČSSD), because the CR makes a bad alliance partner. On the other hand, the very object of the CR's extra-alliance affair, the U.S., has been off necking with the Russkies. The CR finds itself in the position of both the jilted and the jiltee. It's time for the CR to put an end to this radar love triangle and beg the EU for forgiveness.[Czech Republic European Union Nations UN United States of American USA Russia missile defense extra-marital]
