Congress Passes Radar Agreement

Today, Congress ratified a bill establishing an anti-missile defense shield in Central Europe. The $465 million bill will place a radar defense system in the Czech Republic along with 10 anti-missile rockets in Poland, only over 100 miles from the Russian border. Despite strong opposition in Central Europe with over 70 percent of the home countries opposing a radar and missile system, the three governments have worked out the plan secretly for years. While the Czech Republic and Poland have yet to have their Parliaments ratify the treaties, it appears likely that both will.

It's terrible to see the misguided efforts going forward. This will most certainly lead to a less stable world.
