Czech Passes the Lisbon Treaty...

I don't know if anyone back in the States cares, but Vaclav Klaus was finally forced to sign (by the Czech Courts) the Lisbon Treaty. He was the last of 27 European leaders to sign the treaty because he thinks that by signing it the Czech Republic will cease to be a sovereign state. Klaus may be eurosceptic, but I think that I would be too. The Czech Republic isn't exactly a huge country who is going to have a very powerful say within the EU... For those of you who don't know what the Lisbon Treaty is: It's going to create a new post of an EU presidency and of a high representitive for foreign affairs. Also, more decisions are going to be by majority vote rather than unanimity.

I think it's a pretty interesting topic...

Here's the article if anyone wants to read it:
