After reading this post at the Beatroot, I have a better idea:
Out of the sites where the US [anti-missile] system could be installed in Europe—to stave off any rockets fired by 'rogue states', apparently (which means Iran or North Korea these days) the Czech Republic and Poland are the leading contenders. (More)
A month ago, rumor had it that the Czech Republic was more likely than Poland. I haven't followed the story, but it seems that there should be an update soon (if not one already...as you can tell, I'm slow on the uptake with these sorts of things). I can certainly understand the Communists being against this, but it seems like other people would be more interested too.
Perhaps I'll find out more while I'm in Zlín again this weekend for a folk festival. More from BBC: Czech Bid for US Missile Base, Czechs May Host US Missile Base
