There are 15 comments on the www.balkanalysis.com story from Jan 30, 2011, titled Greek Domestic and Foreign Policy Challenges and Opportunities in 2011 and Beyond. In it, www.balkanalysis.com reports that:

Editor's note: With a new Congress recently sworn in in the U.S. capital, and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton setting off in early February for high-level meetings in Athens and in Ankara , issues involving Greece, Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean are again returning to the US foreign policy agenda. The portfolio of issues that date back nearly four decades, based on the Aegean sovereignty disputes and the Cyprus problem, as well as the Macedonia name dispute, are very likely at the heart of Greece’s diplomatic goals.

Skopians are titoistic pseudonation of Yugoslavia. The Yugoslavisation of the Vardar Bulgarians with Greek name.
Makedonija is the Greek name Makedonia in Serbocroatian. It is not Skopian name.

Vardar only mans guardian. And Slavic means enlightened. Not to say we are either but it does raise questions. We were raised to believe what our parents instilled in us. I for a fact was told that I am Roman and Macedonian. I'm a mutt. So what. In America the greatest country that ever existed they give you the hard earned freedom that the world strides to match. In the Balkans everyone is fighting over history rather than the real world crisis. There is a new world order approaching whenever turmoil reaches a boiling point. Macedonia should focus on infrastructure, global integrity, and complete freedom of all its people. And of never forgetting all the countries who helped us in our quest. The world is getting smaller and we need to function as a whole or take the next exit. I hope Greek people dont take offence to my statements. I respect them and have no problem admitting that my family is from there. What happened in the past must stop and we must become a team in the global race to survive. Or we will both become a thing of the past in the near future. A wise man once told me that a true mother of a baby will let it go before she tears it apart with an imposter, but to share is the noble path.

Domestic issues = Stop the rioting, pay the debt.

Foreign issues = lose ICJ court case, beg forgivness.

Fyromians are a titoistic CLOWN pseudonation, different nation to Macedonians! Fyromians are the Yugoslavisation of the Vardar Bulgarians.

FYROM is a Yugoslavian term different to Greek term "Macedonia"!
This State have the titoistic term "Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", TODAY "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia"(FYROM).
FYROM is a Yugoslavian term different to Greek term "Macedonia" and the term "Turkish Riviera" is different to term "Riviera".

Skopians of the FYROM try to identify the term "Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" with the term "Macedonia" and therefore there is the Name problem with the state.

Skopians of FYROM have a name Problem! Not the Macedonians. Macedonians are Greeks since 3000 years.
See Document of the UNO:
Decides to admit the State whose application is contained in document
A/47/876-S/25147 to membership in the United Nations, this State being
provisionally referred to for all purposes within the United Nations as "the
former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" pending settlement of the difference
that has arisen over the name of the State.

Macedonians are Greeks since 3000 years! Not the Yugoslavisation of the Vardar Bulgarians from Vardarska. Skopians are a Titoistic Pseudonation of Yugoslavia.
Makedonija is the Greek name Makedonia in Serbocroatian. It is not Skopian name.

Coudnt agree with you more, but you cant go forward into the future without accepting your past. The worst thing you can do is to build a future based on lies and a false past. And that is exactly what FYROM is doing.They are Slavs and Albanians. What is wrong with that? They should be proud of their past and get on with their future.

Concerning FYROM:

Domestic issues= Accept who you are, Slavs (Bulgarian descent)+ Albanians

Foreign issues= Accept who Macedonians are (GREEK) and get on with your life (EU + NATO)

Nice picture. You do realise that the map in question was commissioned by the Greek government in 1899 and was drawn by a Greek cartographer called Nikolaidis, don't you?

United Macedonia is actually a Greek idea. The only difference is that in the Greek plan they are the rulers, while the Macedonians sort of had themselves in mind as rulers of Macedonia.
