Old Man McCain had a little Q and A with reporters today. This came out of his mouth.
“I was concerned about a couple of steps that the Russian government took in the last several days. One was reducing the energy supplies to Czechoslovakia. Apparently that is in reaction to the Czech's agreement with us concerning missile defense, and again some of the Russian now announcement they are now retargeting new targets, something they abandoned at the end of the Cold War, is also a concern. So we see the tensions between Russia and their neighbors, as well as Russia and the United States are somewhat increasing. We need to try to do everything we can to lessen those tensions including the tensions between Russia and the country of Georgia.”
Um. Czechoslovakia isn't a country. It was. Way back when you were lucid.
Czechoslovakia was a sovereign state in Central Europe that existed from October 1918 until 1992. On January 1, 1993, Czechoslovakia peacefully split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Maybe if the Old Man watched more soccer he'd know. Or, if he wanted to run a country or something, he could bone up on what's been going on for the past couple of decades.
Then again, we could use someone who understands the Hittites.
