Evidently Yahoo! thought this is important: the Socialist party leaders from Germany, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic,and rejected the missile shield the US proposes to build in and for those countries.
Here's a secret that doesn't appear in the article: most of the socialists in Czech Repub., Slovakia, Slovenia and Poland are holdovers from the Commie apparatus that ruled those countries (when Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia) from the late 1940s through 1989-90. In other words, KGB operative Vladimir Putin hates the notion of a US DEFENSIVE missile shield in Eastern Europe, so now the ex-Commies from USSR satellites fall in line with him.
Oh yeah, the Austrian and German socialists were pro-USSR too.
NOW, you can take that article for what it's worth.
