1. The Macedonians Slavs blame everyone but themselves. Conspiracy theories abound. Its Soros's fault. Its Greece's fault. Its Bulgaria's fault. Its Serbia's fault. It’s the Albanian's fault. It's Zaev's fault. Its Hillary's fault. Wake up you fools. It’s your own fault. Blame Gruevski and your false history. You prostitutes were the first to recognize Kosovo. The country has already destroyed itself. When they allowed Gruevski to erect cheap Italian statues of Hellenic figures the place was doomed. You said nothing. money spent falsifying a history. Anything that happens to Macedonia is your own fault, brainwashed by Gruevski. I wonder what Gruev and Delchev would have made of this mess. The Diaspora cultural criminals left Yugoslavia years ago now fancy themselves as history professors. Let the Albanians have it. your greed for Hellenic history and digging for something older that wasn't there has cost you your country. Admire Gruevski's statues and read your false encyclopedias because that's all that is left.
    “Goce Delchev and Dame Gruev used to pass Death Sentences to those who claimed the blood of Alexander runs in us“. You made Greater Albania possible by your actions. Don't blame Albania. Don't blame the Greeks. Don't blame Zaev. Don't blame Georgievski. Blame yourselves. You fly a flag with a Hellenic symbol (the star of Vergina). Shame on you. Your flag is a gold lion on a red background not some Hellenistic symbol. You are all embarrassing.

    You are confusing the government of Republiska Srpska with that of Bosnia and Herzegovina. And Belgrade does not have much control over either of them. There is no love lost between Vucic and Dodik.
    (Joe A, 23 March 2017 06:13)

    Nor does Rama over Albanian parties, if he did he would have created one party list (like Serbska in Kosovo) if the goal is to control from Tirana.

    All they did they met in Tirana to discuss what Albanian parties already wanted, its a gathering place.

    Sure I know Vucic does not control Bosnia but he does have power over Dodik as if Serbia does not support him he would have a harder time ( dont confuse public fencing with what is the goal) we all know Vucic would love RS as part of Serbia he does so much he was there and he even was caught in a clip with gun in his hand.

    Joe what bothers you that Albanian language is official who would it hurt?

  3. The ethnic problem is a false excuse. It is a political faux just like Alexander`s Statue, or name dispute.

    Macedonia is suffering from foreign intervention and it is those Putin`s muppets Ivanov and Gruevski.

    Yes, but there is not a government established in Bosnia co-based on a "Serbian" platform. If you understand anything about BiH then you would know that that would never ever happen.
    (Joe A, 22 March 2017 15:37)

    You kidding right, Dodik can not fart without talking to BG.

    Serbs in Kosovo, why does it bother you that they spoke in Tirana all they are asking to have their language be official language how is this damaging anyone?

    Need to coexist, lets learn a bit from Swiss. Look same issue is in Lithuania where Russians can not have theire rights and make 20%.

  7. VRMO were ok with the language element of the Tirana platform, just not the part about investigation of corruption.
    The corruption of the VRMO has done more damage to the country that any Tirana platform.
    (Dwight, 22 March 2017 17:41)

    That is my thinking too, such strong opposition from Ivanov can only be explained with fear. I would bet my money on him that he has a lot to lose, maybe even risks going to jail if he lets go.

  8. also..about the platform being developed in Albania, like it or not, most ethnic minorities have a "sponsor" country that both helps them and uses them for political purposes, especially in crisis times. Serbia acts as a sponsor for Serbs in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo. Russia is a sponsor for ethnic Russians in Ukraine. Turkey for ethnic Turks in various countries.

  9. There certainly is a blackmail element to the platform as it is win-win for Albanians. If accepted, they will form a government and their platform will be implemented. If rejected, they can play the ethnic card, and in any new elections they will regain votes that they lost to SDSM.
    Regardless of the tactics of all parties, DUI/SDSM have the right to try form a government.
    If the platform is against the constitution, it is up to a court to decide, not Ivanov. He has completely ignored the abuses of the last government, now he claims to be an expert on the constitution.
    He claims that the Tirana platform requires changes to the constitution. I am not fully aware of the laws in Macedonia but surely a public referendum is required for changes to the constitution, which would put the decision in the hands of the citizens? With 25% of the population, the right to have Albanian as an official language is not unreasonable.


    VRMO were ok with the language element of the Tirana platform, just not the part about investigation of corruption.
    The corruption of the VRMO has done more damage to the country that any Tirana platform.
    In saying all of that, the DUI has been part of the corruption of the previous government and I have no doubt that the SDSM is just as bad.
    The nepotism and looting of the state in Macedonia makes the current Serbian government look like amateurs, but the fact is that the DUI and the VMRO would let the country burn rather than hand over power.

  11. If Slavs in MK had gone to Russia for consultations on a "Slavic platform" all hell would have broken lose. MK suffers from foreign interference with its domestic issues.
    (Joe A, 22 March 2017 11:24)

    Serbs in Bosnia go to Serbia in consultation all the time, even carry Serbian passports and vote in presidential elections!

    So Slavs consult with their own country, so Do Croats in Bosnia.

    Whats wrong to meet in Tirana why its ok for Dodik or other parties to meet in Beograd but Albanians not to meet in Tirana how you justify this?

  12. Joe,

    Macedonia can not exist without Albanians living in Macedonia. It can only be like Switzerland with equal rights for all its citizens or devided in ethnic lines. Albanians wherever their live are in their lands.
