Is it Necessary to Protect and Defend Territory of the Nation – NATO Nation?

Milan KUBEŠA

Rapid reductions and dissolution of the Territorial Defense Forces in preparation and rst implementation stage of the Czech Armed Forces Reform evokes a perception that these Forces are no more that necessary although approximately since 1993, they represented the core of forces assigned to national territory protection and defense. Is the necessity deprivation it really true? Though we have become NATO members since 12th March 1999, it does not mean that our national territory protection and defense becomes less relevant. In my view, it is exactly opposite. Responsibility of each NATO nation for its own territory protection and defense must be higher compared to the past. I will try to give reasons for this statement.
