Obama Circa April

In Prague:

The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles.

If the Iranian threat is eliminated, we will have a stronger basis for security, and the driving force for missile defense construction in Europe will be removed. (Applause.)
