Comment Re:"Macedonian civilization" (Score 1) 168

"Greek nationalist view....". "Too bad that no one outside of Greece cares...". " ...peons spoke only their local Indo-European language..."

Clearly you are either a Bulgarian or F.Y.R.O.M.ian that went through a Communistic educational system. Too bad for you and your people (who of course have no connection with the Macedonians, Messinians, Spartans, Athenians, Corinthians, Trojans, Thessalians, Thracians, Epirotians, Cretans that created Greece. And from now on I will use the Greek name of Greece, "Hellas" if our fellow Slashdoters do not mind.

So, you say we Hellenes are nationalists. I prefer the term "free". Free as Leonidas and his 300 Spartans that went to fight with 1.000.000 Persians although they knew they would die. Free as the Hellenes of the Byzantine Empire that fought the Persians, the Arabs, the Russians, the Bulgarians, the Turks,the Crusaders. Free as the Hellenes that fought the Axis Powers in WWII although they knew they were outnumbered and that they would definitely lose. When in the same time, much bigger and wealthier countries had lowered their heads in front of the military power of the Nazis. Well if to defend your country is considered nationalism then yes we are nationalists.

"Too bad, no one outside of Greece cares..." On the contrary, many many people care. For example, the people that visited Hellas during last year's Olympic Games; I 'll bet that they care. And of course the people that finance F.Y.R.O.M. -this communistic remnant of the Cold War- oh yes! They care a lot what the international public think of Hellas-Macedonia and F.Y.R.O.M.! A lot! Otherwise they would not try to falsify true history with "The Republic of Macedonia". And definitely they would not finance an artificial state which economy is based on prostitution, drug trafficking and arms smuggling.

The " ...peons spoke only their local Indo-European language". Yeah right.... Anyway the above statement must be considered as progress. Few years ago, F.Y.R.O.M.ians were saying that Alexander did not speak Greek and that he was a Slav. Then they started saying that Phillip was Greek but Alexander's mother Olympias did not speak Greek since she was a ...Slav. Nowadays, they are saying that both Phillip and Alexander were Greeks and spoke Greek but their soldiers were Slavs. In a few years time, F.Y.R.O.M.ians will be begging Greece to accept THEM as Greeks and send some Greek troops to protect F.Y.R.O.M. from the Albanian aggression. Guess what; we are not going to send to F.Y.R.O.M. a single soldier. Why? Because we respect this artificial state.
Good luck with your pathetic propaganda. It gave me a good laugh.

You feel that this posting is flame and that I am a troll? Go to F.Y.R.O.M. and check for yourself! But before doing this check Wikipedia for "Atlantis", "Critias" and "Timeaus". You will reach very, very interesting conclusions.
