Czech Media

Got lucky with a search through Czech newspaper websites. Can't even remember how this started, I was looking initially at Iranian newspapers. Anyway, I put a couple of the links online for you guys to look at. Again, just a series of links for us to decide whether it is worth pursuing or not.

Protest against US radar base outside government headquarters
Around 200 opponents of a US radar base in the Czech Republic held a protest outside the Office of the Government on Tuesday. They unfurled banners and erected tents, saying they were setting up a peaceful anti-radar base. The protesters said their main goal was to convince Czech politicians to let the public decide the matter freely in a national referendum. The radar base would be part of a US missile defense system located jointly in the Czech Republic and Poland.

This story was the second item on the bulletin.

The Defense Ministry currently intends to construct the radar base on the Brdy military base near Míšov, west Bohemia, about 90 kilometers (56 miles) southwest of Prague.

The Prague Post has a very good site and a good search engine so if we decide to look at Czech reporting it might be helpful.

The following isn't from a news website but from something calling itself the Czech Republic's "official website". If it is then the report would probably be from CTK - Czeck News Agency which is a rubbish website. But it is probably a very early mention of the intent to open a US radar base in the Czech Republic. I think this report also mentions that about 200 jobs will be created by the base.
