I think there were some protests against these radars and military bases, but mostly those things are done in secret without too much media fuss so people sometimes even don't know what is happening.  :P

There were protests in Czech R. against radar station and there was even "media fuss".

I think it has nothing to do with military bases, I never heard about USA intending to build a military base in ČR.

And whole cause just revealed that there still are some pricks in Russia, even high-ranking, who dream about Russian empire  :) Because how could a defensive system threaten Russia?
I just hope their missiles rust in peace before some prick bigger than Putin gains power in RF.

And I also hope the radar won't be build. Because as somebody else pointed out well, ČR (and Poland) would become strategic military targets in case of a conflict. Which we do not want.
