There seems to be no limits to the absurdities of these poor and deluded denizens of the FYROM. I mean, in all seriousness, read what Philip II of Macedon said in his own words:

"Not content with this, you have shown your contempt for right and your hostility to me by actually sending an embassy to urge the king of Persia to declare war on me. This is the most amazing exploit of all; for, before the king reduced Egypt and Phoenicia, you passed a decree calling on me to make common cause with the rest of the Greeks against him in case he attempted to interfere with us…"

Philip's Letter, Demosthenes XII.6

Philip would either be shuddering today or rolling on the floor in utter laughter to see this country that has nothing to do with him, try to utilize him for propaganda purposes against the people he belonged to and dreamed of leading in common cause.

Aristoliskiov the Bulgarian Philosopher from Mongolia. Wonder why Grueii did not order Aristotelevski's statue to be erected right next to Alaksatar's.

Next target is Italy, the POPES, YES THE POPES, one by one,with Mother Teresa leading. A bit more south there she is.. Cleo and her hubby Julius Caesar, TO BE ERECTED ASAP, and many more new and old worldwide heroes.

The dictator of FYROM Fuhrer Gruevski was proud today to unveil the statue of another ancient 'ethnic Macedonian' the famous footballer Pele.

Pele was born in the small town of Macedonia, Sao Paulo, Brazil which makes him another 'great hero of skopjedonkeyland'

Fuhrer Gruevski added: "We in FYROM are proud to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on statues that make us look like a laughing stock and Pele is another 1 of those 'proud Macedonians'.

Asked to comment, Pele said: "HAHAHA What? Im not Greek and especially not Slav-Bulgarian but thanks for the recognition."

AAAAAAAAAhahahahaha!! Another kitschy 'statue' to fool the masses!

What the poor deluded SlavoTartars fail to realize is that one tiny gold or silver coin with Philppos or Alexanders head on it - WITH THEIR NAMES WRITTEN IN GREEK - is worth far more than all the giant, FAKE, kitschy statues and 'monuments' the monkeys can raise!

They convince NO ONE they have anything whatsoever to do with Historic Hellenic Macedonia!

Lol!!!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Keep burying your head in the book of Tito FyromianSkop.

Macedonia was and will always be Greek

Its only geographic convenience that you stole the name Macedonian and call yourselves Macedonian and not Spartan, Corinthian, Athenian, Thessalonian etc etc.

Build as many statues as you like. Iraq even has a statue of the famous Greek King Alexander The Great. How do I know this? because the Iraqi government got in contact with Greece to say they were doing it and wanted Greece's blessing to do it. Greece was happy for them to do it.

The difference is the Iraqi's aren't stupid enough to call themselves 'ethnic Macedonians' AHAHAHAHA There is only 1 group of morons who do that, gues who??? The Slavic-Bulgarian Skopians of FYROM

My fellow Greek brothers and sisters, as usual you are being way to harsh on these people, after all they are the true descendants of Macedon.

Us Greeks have it all wrong, the Macedonian language did exist, it was passed on as Bulgarian. I know this now. Nevermind all those treasures unearthed having Greek writings, that was a ploy by the Greeks to manipulate Macedonia.

Disregard all ancient literature and texts even those written stone with Gree letters, again, a ploy by the Greeks to conceal the true Macedonian people's.

My Greek brothers and sisters go now to every library, university, museum, and art gallery on the planet and burn all those treacherous lies about these humble people of Macedon. Waste no time.

Finally let's give them back their lands of which we stole, regardless of no written document of these events. Let's shall go by their word of all these articles and speak of this no more.

These world leading historians, academics and museum curators must be executed at once for their betrayal of the poor innocent people's of Makedonski.

I am outrage how us Greeks also betrayed these wonderful and extremely intelligent beings of Makedonski. We betrayed these people for than two millennia. We have to set things right.

Now who's with me !!!!

Let's face it! Ancient Macedonian vs Ancient Greeks, huge difference:
1. In the time of Ancient Macedonia, the Greek nation didn't existed, so the idea of nationhood and unification is total absurd.
2. Ancient Macedonians weren't sort of Greeks.
Basic facts: Ancient Macedonia was kingdom with capital of Pella and they adored women. Ancient Greeks were City-states and they adored men and Vaseline was their favorite play toy. It's not a joke.
3. A. Macedonia was land locked kingdom, nothing like the Vaselines, which were sailors and leaved near the sea.
4. Macedonian phalanx war suite was similar with the Thracian, which were as well inland inhibitors.
5. All the Thracian and Macedonain land in now days are inhabited with Slavs.
6. Slav in translation means Orthodox. With Christianity, Macedonians and Thracians became Slavs.
7. The Venetic language is to be considered the most oldest language in Europe. It is well known is the proto Slavic, spoken way before proto Greek invasion from Africa.
8. The only bases of Macedonians greekness of the Vaselines version is based of the inscriptions on ancient Greek, nerveless that Ancient Maceodnians spoke different language not understandable for Greeks. But inscriptions were!
9. Macedonians used Greek language for administrative purposes, since their language was not writable.
10. Ancient Macedonians were warriors, Ancient Greeks were Vaseline philosophers akka translators of a Egyptian science and philosophers.

^^^^^^^^^^ HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Only a FYROM Skop Bulgarian would believe that shit.

Go back to sucking Tito's D**K

Macedonians are Greeks, just like Spartans, Athenians, Corinthians, Epirotes, Thessalonians etc etc etc. Italy became a nation in 1861 does that mean they dont claim the ancient Roman civilisation.

You are a 1st class moron, keep believing your crap and watch out for the Albanians they will crush the Skops of FYROM and make you no more.

Greater Albania can't be stopped either;) Unfortunately for you, we're gonna let them do whatever they want with your country with the help of the Turks, and then if they try to move on, we're gonna stop them
