English term or phrase: strawman
I can´t find proper meening in dictionary, it should mean something like "condition" in this sense I guess. Thanks

Czech translation:nastrčený člověk (nastrceny clovek - for those who do not see accents)
Explanation:
There is not a single word in Czech for this. We sometimes use the German Strohmann in commentaries in papers etc., but it is not commonly known within broader population. Nastrčený člověk is the nearest description in Czech of the English strawman or German Strohmann.
