1. The Macedonian name question will never to resolved satisfactorily, as neither side wants it resolved. It serves as a great distractor and source of threat from an outside when politicians on both sides of the border need to cover up their failures or misdeeds. I think the name question will only be answered when Macedonia will end being destroyed by Albanian nationalism. Brian Ghilliotti

  2. So why would the Republic of Macedonia change its ‘identity’ to appease only 9% of counties represented in the UN?

    That's just to help Greece save face as a result of Greece creating this idiotic controversy. Once Macedonia joins NATO and the EU, it can change the name to whatever it wants and there would not much that Greece can do about it.

  3. Why would Macedonia ever want to join Serbia lol. We Macedonians are ethnic Bulgarians who speak Bulgarian, worship Bulgarian idols and history and practice Bulgarian culture.

    The time that we were enslaved under Yugoslavia was the darkest period in our history

  4. It is interesting how slavs insist on wanting to be known as Macedonians! The whole world knows that the only indigenous people of those lands are Albanians. Today’s Macedonia is made of Albanians, slavics, and ottomans (turks). Majority of population has converted into slavic although many of them have Albanian roots. It is easy to distinguish slavs from Albanians, or other Europeans. Real slavs have features of polish, slovakian and russians. Beautiful people of balkans known as illyrians can be found almost everywhere in the region, such as slovenia, Croatia, bosnia, Albania (who are the purest) since they have preserved many values, culture and language) and Greece, including Italy and the rest of Europe. Religion has devided majority of Illyrians, and big powers have managed to devide and control them. Remember this: a slav can be easily distinguishable as most of them are mixed with mongolians and majority of them are indeed unattractive. Countries such as Macedonia, montenegro, kosovo, serbia, should not exist.

  5. The "Greek' ethnicity is fake and is a failed German initiative originating in the 1830's as a way to unify the Christians in the region and provide a buffer to Turkey. Look up king Otto, the first ruler of modern day 'Greece" in the 1830's. He set about to reintroduce the Ancient Greek culture and language in the area, which was previously a series of tribes speaking different languages and identifying as byzantine. Athens at the time was a small village of 400 families, predominantly speaking Albanian! It was until 1913 that Greece acquired our egejska makedonija, and began a process of colonization and expelled the indigenous Macedonians. One million Christian pontiacs from asia minor were settled in the area following the population exchange with Turkey. Now all of a sudden Greks are claiming an unbroken connection with the Ancient Macedonians?? You don't even have an unbroken connection with the Ancient Greeks!! Greeks have genetically more in common with African and Arabs than to Europeans, stop being so self-righteous and thinking you are so divine. Look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself are you really European?

  6. Quick numbers check:

    Currently 137 Countries (75% of the world) including US, Canada, UK, Russia China recognise Macedonia as the ‘Republic of Macedonia’

    Only 17 Countries (9% of the world) which includes Greece and Albania, recognise Macedonia as ‘the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia’

    The remaining 30 odd countries, which are predominantly developing nations (e.g. Sudan, Botswana, and Bolivia) have no diplomatic relations with either Macedonia or Greece, so do not care about the name issue.

    So why would the Republic of Macedonia change its ‘identity’ to appease only 9% of counties represented in the UN?

    If Greece has a problem with sharing the word Macedonia, then Greece can change it's Greek region of Macedonia back to the name they used before 1987 i.e. ‘Norther Greece’ or change it to ‘Macedon’ to distinguish it from the ‘Republic of Macedonia’.

  8. when a nation is incorrectly named, as in FYROM's case , the ramifications are catastrophic not only for its population but also for its neighbors. Bulgarians, Vlachs, Albanians, Roma, Serbs and Turks are not Macedonian. They live in a region which has zero connection to Greek antiquity and culture. The Bulgarian Slavs who have attempted to hijack the name with a homogeneous identity and culture have failed. They are the laughing stock of academia worldwide. Even the left is antiquated. Zaev and Dimitrov will ensure a name change. The statues are coming down. The cultural orgasm is over. The historical semen that was ejaculated out of Nikola Gruevski's testicles has all but been washed away down the Vardar river. Rehabilitation of these ethnic Bulgarians is now taking place. Rockdale, Prestons, Wollongong and Toronto are the last bastions of resistance. The Albanian parties have cleansed all fabrications. Long live Albania. Long live Bulgaria. Long live Greece. Long live FYROM. Think twice Bill Nicholov before flying the Star of Vergina flag and spreading cultural propaganda. Gruevski is enjoing a prison sentence for crimes against his own people. A cultural criminal has been charged. Oginar, Petrov and yourself are just as guilty. Historical fabrications, Cultural lies and identity theft are your crimes.

    If you have issues with the indigenous Shqiptares in their ancestral homelands then I suggest you return to Siberia mountain caves where you originated from...

  19. Northern Macedonia?

    Why not Iliryda Macedonia?

    If they don’t want to join Bulgaria or Serbia then then so be it, work towards building a successful country together with the Albanians. Time to move on from the hatred and past attitudes. But they have to give more to the Albanians, put them on equal footing. Fair is fair, maybe this will get them in the EU and people may prosper? If it fails the young will migrate anyway, they are doing it now.
