    AFAIK all major settlements of ancient Macedonia were within borders of modern Greece.

    Macedonia was first established as a city state, like most ancient European cultures. This is the consensus of both British and Greek academia.

    Your point is mute though, none of the major cultural centres (i.e capitals, palaces or burial grounds) are found in the Slavic state. They adopt the Vergina Star despite it never appearing on their territory. So your argument holds zero merit.

    You make fun of Greece but have obviously attempted to learn about our history. I wouldn’t know why someone would study something they don’t like, but I guess people like you are great at wasting their time.

    Do you have any idea what you are talking about? Greece has more battle tanks than Britain and France combined. It’s fleet is actually armed and does drills almost daily. On top of that it has a giant conscript army to support the professional army. We are the only NATO country other than the US to contribute the correct amount of our gdp to military spending. No other country other than Turkey in the region can fuck with us.

    We do this because of Turkey, a country of 80 million that we need to defend ourselves against incase of another Cyprus.

    So you know nothing about the region or it’s history? Then why post?

    Greece’s military spending has not been tarnished by the crisis. FYROM has attempted to join both the EU and NATO and Greece has blocked it. Why wouldn’t they join the EU? Look at the stats before posting rubbish.

    All the major cultural centers (capitals (Vergina/Pella), palaces and tombs) were in Modern Greece and are actually nowhere near the current territory of FYROM. The Ancient Macedonian culture was much closer to the coast (for obvious reasons) and Thessaloniki is the successor of the famous Ancient Macedonian cities (and capital of Roman/Byzantine/Turkish eras of Macedonia). Thessaloniki is now the capital of the Greek region of Macedonia and Greeces second biggest city after Athens.

    The territory that FYROM holds was Hinterlands and of little significance.

    I really want to know why Soros and why US policy was enabling that and the greater Albania push. They want Islam to spread in balkans?

    they create tensions (one example is the tactic known as the colorful revolution) that lead to wars and break ups (like in yougoslavia) so they could bring in their military and take over (nato vs russia). the spread of islam is just the result of it. they don't care.
    the only lands that want to stay neutral to nato are serbia and to some degree macedonia.

    I never knew it was Fyrom. I’ve always just seen it as Macedonia on maps and globes.

    This is what happens when you isolate yourself. Go Greece?.

    Greeks will only marry Greeks, only work for Greeks , only hire Greeks.

    They have done this to themselves

    Greece is in an unfortunate situation but to say it's a shit hole is a bit of a stretch especially when you Germans love to buy property there and send your daughter's to its party destinations so they can get railed by the locals.

    Show respect you heathen.

    Lol alexander had to massacre an entire Greek city to force the rest of the Greeks to accept his rule because they considered the Macedonians foreigners.

    The Greeks were conquered by Macedonians and then band wagonned to call Alexander one of theirs.
