Current Events in Czechoslovakia

From CNN:

For the second time in two days, John McCain has referred to current events in “Czechoslovakia” – a country that officially ceased to exist in January of 1993.

“And I regret some of the recent behavior Russia that has exhibited, and I’ll be glad to talk about that later on including reduction in oil supplies to Czechoslovakia after they agreed with us on a missile defense system, etcetera,” said the presumptive Republican nominee at a New Mexico town hall Tuesday.

More than fifteen years ago, Czechoslovakia officially split into two nations – the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Next week the Senator plans to issue a position paper on our relations with Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire, and then he’s planning to meet with Generalissimo Francisco Franco.
