They got a bit of Germany in 1918[edit]

It is on the map in the 'klapedia' ( Memel) revolt article. Looks like the new state got some of Silesia. So what was this province called, and why did they get it? It went back in 1938 to Germany along with the much larger Sudetenland  ; it is not clear if it was returned in 1945 along with the Sudetenland. More info needed.

Undue weigh?[edit]

Yopie misreads the wp:Undue rule. It states, "Giving due weight and avoiding giving undue weight means that articles should not give minority views as much of, or as detailed, a description as more widely held views." That is, the views of a tiny or fringe minority should not be given disproportionate weight. In the Cold War context the views of the US government and the head of the CIA are indeed a major viewpoint and all the scholars of whatever politics consider the CIA to be one of the most important Cold War agencies. Here we are talking about the analysis made by Dulles, the long-term head of the agency at the height of his power (his brother was then the US Secretary of State). Does Yopie really consider the CIA as a "tiny or fringe minority" ???? He has used the UNDUE tag repeatedly (in History of Czechoslovakia and Czechoslovakia, and called the info "trivia." No other editor supports his deletions of sourced material. In this case the importance of Dulles position was validated and put into context by coverage in a recent scholarly book published by a university press. Yopie has failed to indicate the reasons he thinks the CIA position is a fringe position. The risk is that Yopie is engaging in an edit war expressing his private POV and tries to cover up embarrassing information he does not want Wikipedia readers to learn about. We certainly hope that is not the case but Yopie has merely reverted sourced text over and over again with no explanation for his strange actions. Rjensen (talk) 16:11, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Modern Day Use?[edit]

I don't know if it is worth mentioning but I often, even with people as young as 12 hear people refer to Czechia and Slovakia as Czechoslovakia, maybe mention that it is still erroneously referred too as such? 151.227.229.35 (talk) 06:11, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Presidents between 1948 and 1989[edit]

There are not in the list Klement Gotvald, Antonín Zápotocký, Antonín Novotný, Ludvík Svoboda and Gustáv Husák. I have discover, that here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Presidents_of_Czechoslovakia its the list OK. Can anybody correct it here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.231.33.73 (talk) 11:49, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
