I'm surprised this toolish comment keeps floating around, and I don't think people are being honest when they say he actually thinks that.
I'll grant you the Czechoslovakia issue. Even though it's not a country anymore, it was, and it was recently. It's still a region, just like Yugoslavia is, and hell, just like Prussia is. I wouldn't deduct points from McCain for that.
I do worry about things like McCain not knowing Shia from Sunni when in Iraq, and mispronouncing Saakashvili's name, when he claims to know the man well.
To HALFA, I'd say don't count your chickens before they hatch. I hope Obama wins (though I'd be fine with McCain too), but it's far from a "done deal". If you want those chickens to hatch, you better be on the ground doing the work to make sure they hatch - don't just HOPE for it.
