Quickpost: “Czech” and “Chechen” are 2 different words

Just saw this news story…apparently the Czech government had to remind people that Chechnya is in Russia, not in their country, after a bunch of anti-Czech rhetoric swept social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Apparently, that quote from Ambrose Bierce that “War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography” doesn’t seem to hold when they are dealing with such poor students.
