1. If Zaev wanted to mend relations with Greece he would have announced the demolition of the grotesque Italian made Hellenic reproduction statues that litter the FYROM landscape, the renaming of the airport in Skopje, the renaming of the highway, the renaming of the football stadium, the removal of the repulsive Baroque Hellenic style facades, the correcting of school carriculum, the removal of the Hellenic symbol on the national flag, the removal of all greater Macedonia maps from government institutions and a heartfelt apolgy to the nation of Greece for his nation being vile for the last two and a half decades. Cultural theft cannot be forgiven easily. Actions speak louder than words. Greeks do not want to hear politicians trying new age diplomacy that they learnt in their political science classes. Dimitrov, Šekerinska, Zaevand all the Slavic Fyromians currently running FYROM are just as dogmatic about an exclusivity of the name as the Gruevski ultra nationalists. There is no scope for negotiation with these antiques. Greece is the victim here. Our history has been hijacked by Fyromian Slavs. If FYROM wants exclusivity to the name Macedonia they will have to change their official language to Greek for this corresponds with the Ancient Macedonian language. We Greeks embrace everyone as a Hellene as long as they speak Greek. These Slavs are like a dog with a bone but in their case the bone is plastic and has zero marrow.

  2. The Count of Kosova

    Zaev wasnt elected there isnt anything democratic about the Majority not supporting him
    it was a coupes and colored revolutions but that is quickly forgotten
    were as VMRO-DPMNE and DUI just had to go they were useful to the West once a model and loved
    see the pattern
    same pattern in Albania
    what the Maks are doing is picking the best path they have now

  4. Macedonia is totally useless for NATO unlike Montenegro.

    How so Macedonia has contributed far more
    Professional Army of 7,000
    5 highly trained Special Forces Units
    Lots of experience domestic and Foreign Mission
    Best Helicopter Flight training and Pilots in the Region
    there outdated Soviet Heavy arms really dont matter
    because they focus on being highly trained and the US and NATO actually in private acknowledge that

  9. Macedonia means almost same as Albabia, Alpes, Albion, Laba, Elba, Bela Dona, Aksu ect. = WHITE RIVER. So they have a big choice to chose another Slavic name. If I were them I would chose Republika of the Bali Kani or Balkan Republic.

    Because the Macedonians definitely belonged to the White Khans long before Greek Pariarch Bessarion II wrote his fairy tales about Mehmet II Fatih aka Alexander the Great ... in 16 century. Read "Orationes et epistolae ad Christianos princes contra Turcos" by Bessarion - the mortal enemy of the Macedonians.

    If I were them I would open a wide discussion who Alexander was indeed and if he were Greek then why has he granted all the lands in the White World to the Slavs declaring the rest as slave to the Slavs ?

    If we stop to be zombies and return to the question who was Alexander and why his famous GRAMOTA TO THE SLAVS published in 9 European countries in the Middle Ages WAS WRITTEN IN SLOVENSKI (= Church Serbian) ONLY ???? Here's it oryginal text :

    [link]

    Automatically many other questions will arise. Did word Greek have ethnical or religional context ? How come that Athens dissapeared for centuries when the Greeks stopped to make coins and even to die in 3-10 centuries ect.

  15. It has started. Zaev has sold Macedonia to Albanins. First, name change, then two oficial languages (Macedonian and Albanian) and two oficial religions (Christian and muslim)and then two official states, Macedonia divided betwin Macedonian side and Albanian side and then America and NATO will simply give the Albanian side to the Albania creating a greater Albania. That was the aim of the Americans from the begining.
    (Racko, 9 June 2017 13:05)

    If Serbia did this in 1990 you would still have Kosovo but you did not so you lost it.

    Why not have two official languages, why should people who make 30% of population not have this right, if we were civilized like west we would be better.

    Belgium, Swiss etc have multi languages.

    Why they must bend to one or the other coexist man, just like Serbs in Kosovo they speak Serbian no big deal - people want jobs enough nationalisam.

  19. Zaev is like a breath of fresh air for Macedonia. The Albanians should be thanked for helping elect Zaev. NATO membership is just one of many benefits Macedonia will receive for having dumped Gruevski and his gang of thugs. Joining NATO will open the door for EU membership. Will Serbia read the writing on the wall: Recognize the Republic of Kosova and join NATO, then perhaps, Serbia will be allowed to join the EU.

  21. Perfect for Serbia.

    Now there is REALLY no compelling reason to join NATO.

    Of course, the feeble minds below can't understand that. Such is the case with feeble minds.

    Serbia has been encircled her entire existence. There is nothing new in that statement.

    What is new, is that Serbia now has no compelling reason to join.

    It reaps the benefits of security without devoting any notable part of its GDP to security. It need not send it's sons off to fight foreign wars. all it needs to do is excel at anti-terrorism activities.

    Instead of mending bridges with their Orthodox brothers they burn them instead.
    Do these fools really think that west is their friend? Who do they expect help from in case of attack? Yes, they think that because they are in NATO they are safe and NATO will protect them.
    Albania is in NATO as well so who is going to stop rabid Albanians from taking over?
    The only people the could have counted on are their Orthodox brothers. Very, very short sighted of them.
    Oh, yes, they have Montenegro to call on for help which is also going to be under attack.

    So why not join NATO and EU like this who F cares about the name, really you can change it once you get in and thats all. This will end any fear of federalization leading to break up so then Albanians can have the rights they seek.
