Dragoon Ride divides Europe

According to CNN, the so-called Dragoon Ride, a convoy of US military vehicles doing a show and tell across eastern Europe, it's all cheers and tears of joy as the locals greet the only thing keeping them out of the clutches of Putin.

Oddly enough, you don't have to go any further than the Wall Street Journal (of all places!) to find out that's not the whole story. In the Czech Republic a law has been hurriedly passed to criminalize protest against the display of American military might. There may be more jeers than cheers.

It's worth reading what Finland's Foreign Minister, Erkki Tuomioja, has to say about the American muscle-flexing.

"This is very sad..."
