Czech Military to Help National Guard Establish “Chemical Warfare Unit” in Texas
June 29, 2010
According to Texas National Guard chief commander Adjutant General Jose S. Mayorga, soldiers from the Czech military 31st brigade of radiation, chemical and biological protection will help their US counterparts establish a similar unit in Texas. The soldiers are expected to arrive somewhere next month.
He made the statement to the Czech News Agency (CTK) on June 22, while visiting with Czech chief-of-staff Vlastimil Picek on his invitation.
“Since the Texas guard is considering establishing a similar unit, Mayorga said he would like to see how the Czech unit, seated in Liberec, north Bohemia, is organized and how it prepares for emergency situations, and also its way of reacting to them”, reports the Prague Daily Monitor.
It is interesting to note that the Nuclear Threat Initiative’s (NTI) news outlet reported on March 16 2009 that this very chemical warfare unit would be assigned to “help protect” President Obama during his visit to the EU-USA summit held in Prague in April of that year.
Now I don’t know about you, but since when does a ‘chemical warfare unit’, specialized in such things as tracking down anthrax-facilities and other devilries, get to “protect” an American president visiting?
