"It's a shame for Europe": Czechs on the EU's inability to defend itself against Russia

Czech commentators on the iDNES.cz portal left a number of comments on the publication's article that Joe Biden would revise policies the current administration and will significantly increase its military presence in Europe to contain the Kremlin.

Some comments from the readers of the resource are presented below.

The problem with Europe is that its states were mostly at war against each other, and not against anyone. Nationalism is widespread. The Germans against the French, the French against the British, the British against the Germans, Germany against Poland, and the smaller states always joined one or the other. In some places the Russians climbed in, in some places - the Turks. But the Turk has always been the enemy of everyone

- writes Pavel Švestka.

I regard the US commitment to helping the Allies as its greatest contribution to NATO. Joe Biden has no unnecessary illusions about Putin, so I do not expect any reappraisal of the US presence in the Baltics and Poland. Joe Biden has already promised in advance that he will restore the cooperation between the United States and developed democracies, interrupted by Trump, in this sense, I personally take his election very positively

- supposes the user named Ota Jelínek.

Tens of thousands of terrorists and rapists poured into Europe through the Mediterranean, but Russia's activities on the Black Sea are called the biggest problem? The Americans clearly show that NATO is nothing more than a cannonball against the Russian Federation. The only country that pursues an independent policy within NATO is Turkey, but it is no secret that it works against the interests of Europe. And the States are imposing sanctions on European companies participating in the completion of Nord Stream 2 [...]

- reminds the Czech Honza Kovanda.

The way Europe relies on United States aid is a shame. Russia has no economic or demographic impact on Europe and, moreover, has a huge problem on its southeastern border. Dependence on the US military in this vein looks extremely pathetic.

- notes Petr Novak.

One of the biggest mistakes the Czech Republic made in the 21st century was its refusal to host American [missile defense] radars. Russia once conducted a successful special operation here

- dissatisfied with Václav Štěpánek.

The Americans are still shouting that it is necessary to stop Russia, and at the same time they are aggressively interfering in the affairs of other states. And everyone is silent in a rag. I no longer recall how many military campaigns the States conducted without a UN mandate

- reasoned Pavel Indrst.

Europe will be safer because Biden, unlike Trump, will not fall into Putin's hands

- believes Jiri Bilina.

The acquisition of modern weapons systems will guarantee that, despite the challenges, the allies in the alliance will maintain superiority over potential adversaries. And since there are still living witnesses of the occupation of the Czech Republic, both by the Germans and the Bolsheviks, people will know how it all began [...]

- Luboš Jirásek approves.

    Americans are still shouting that Russia must be stopped

    And where in the Czech Republic, and even more so in Europe, is Russia at war? They completely moved out of the oak tree. And why did the Americans shout? Shut up and walk away!

    - Have the witnesses of the occupation of the Czech Republic by Austria already died? Russia is turning to the East and any Czechs and Poles are no longer interested in it. Perhaps Germany can still claim the attention of Russia, for now! Now all the money will circulate in Asia, and in the EU Muslims will begin to establish the Sharia order.

      Russia is turning to the East ...

      Rising from your knees, at the same time lacing something there, turn 180 °. Dangerous body movement. laughing

      Germany can still claim attention.

      But what about the French, and especially the Italians?

      in the EU, Muslims will begin to establish the Sharia order.

      You need to look in the mirror more often, you don't notice something like that under your nose.

      It's not a big task to pick up some "necessary" reviews in order to raise the noise of "indignation". Maybe, as in relations with Turkey, in this case, one should not succumb to "provocations"? Helicopters are not shot down, ambassadors are not shot, they continue to trade. what

    Russia does not seem to be at war with Europe, and does not even think, and in terms of not. And why do we need this, unless they themselves attack Russia, as it was in 1941.

    In Eastern Europe, at the moment, the public is divided approximately 50/50 on the issue of the Russia-West conflict. And many in Russia do not quite correctly divide these people into pro-Russian and pro-American. These, of course, are also there. But they are generally less than 5%. The rest are anti-American or anti-Russian. And this is a big difference in behavior and perception. Antagonistic views work differently. Those whom we consider FOR the Russian Federation, in fact, simply do not like the United States or the West as a whole, and from two evils they choose what seems closer and more understandable to them, that is, the Russian Federation in this case. The same is the second opposite half, exactly the opposite.
    Also, the same Czechs have a place to have just minimal foreign policy literacy and an understanding of the situation even in their own country - no one really says or shows them anything. Therefore, even many Czechs still think that the refusal to install the American missile defense radar was the result of some Russian special operations or the influence of the Russian Federation on the country's policy. In fact, the Czech government, in this case, simply did not violate its own constitution, which explicitly states a ban on the stationing of foreign troops on its territory on a permanent basis.
