Nukes or Ukes?


In the unfolding story of central European missile defense bases, there has been growing attention. Just to give a bit of an update and a wider perspective than my own rather limited musician's view, here are two short updates.

The US-led effort has been noticed by Russia, writes Vilhelm Konnander. The plan is not so popular with Eurocrats and Russia says it sees the plans as a move against Russia rather than Iran. Konnander notes, "What stands out as perhaps the most peculiar part of Washintgton's proposal is how the Republican administration has revived one of its pet projects of the 1980s." His comments follow a Washington Post article about the Russian response. From CTK Czech News Agency via the Prague Monitor, there is news that the Czech government will inform parliament about the situation today.

Elsewhere in central Europe, beware the growing Uke-domination, which seems to be emanating from upper Austria. (And I was worried about missile defense systems?!) If you think it sounds harmless, then watch this clip! ;-)

We're not as scary as your typical central European dictatorship. It's all peace, love, and ukuleles with this plan for a unified Europe.

Cheers from Seattle, a city that's awash in ukuleles.

If I remember, you have a nice racetrack in Brno. Go there and watch the action! You won't be bored!
