Yet among the thousands of comments I posted to the forum you won't find a single post defending German nationalism, or any other form of nationalism, and there is no other member who actually defends the EU.
That just goes to show what kind of mindless hatred you are spreading.
The Balkan is a troubled place. Your bombastic ultra-nationalism is a good demonstration of that fact. Your name dispute is totally absurd to anybody outside the Balkans. Just like Belgians have no problem with Luxembourg, most people in this world will look on in bewilderment at the crazy hatred that you people are so desperate to cultivate.
I will let you stew in your own hatred because nobody of any sense would want anything to do with that.
The Balkans is not troubled place at all , as long as it is left alone by western occupiers (read it: Germans, Austrians,Brits, Americans ) and Turks.
Regarding the FYRM name issue , you simply can’t comprehend the importance of the situation for Greeks. I can only explain it by your lack of knowledge and empathy. IMHO Greeks allowing name Northern Macedonia will be more than generous to their neighbors.
As explained to you , this attempt of identity theft happened only in 1946 for practical reason , you would understand it if I put it like “Drag nach süden (port Thessaloniki)”. Any “drag nach” leads inevitably to loss of lives, you would know of course.
So, in 1944/1946 people who never thought of themselves as Macedonians got imposed this term by communists.....50 years later you have monuments, streets , airports named by Greek heroes. What would happen in next 50 years?
Do you need better examples than Bosnia and Herzegovina or Kosovo to understand what can be done only in 50 years and what “identity theft” supported by ignorant NATO puppets can lead to?
