    Not even in your dreams my dear Slav.

    You would desperately wanted your country to be like Greece.

    Greece has no problems with Albania or Turkey.

    Greece has an issue only with FYROM, because people there do not know their history and try to adopt the Greek History.

    An advice (even though i don't like to give advices) .

    Don't feel so happy for the support of the USA because when their interests will change they won't favor you anymore.

    And something else. You referred to Kossovo.

    Learn that USA have more interests with Albanians.

    So you should not feel surprised after some years, if the present day FYROM will be part of Albania or controlled by Albanians due to the big population of Albanians there.

    Cheers !

    Source(s): "foxtraveller" i guess you make a mistake . Greece is a member-state of EU since 1981. Long before : Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Rep., Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden which all are newer member of EU. Newer than Greece in EU. Also Greece is a member of NATO since 1952. Is a member of NATO for 56 years .

    Greece is not poor and bad country, because has good position on map.

    They have problem with Turkish, but I see that Turkish are very nice people, Greece claim for Minor Asia, Turkish lend and for Cyprus and because that they have problem;

    They have problem with Albania, because they have part of Epirus in Greece, Epirus have never been Greek lend, also they are very abusive toward Albanian immigration;

    I don't know what problem they have with Kosova, since I see many Greeks support Kosovo and Albanian minority in Macedonia, with only one reason, clear Macedonia from map.

    About Macedonia: Problem is in that they claim fro Bitola and other Macedonian territories, also they are very abusive towards Macedonians. Basic is in that they should beck stolen lend to Macedonians and pay them 10 millions dollars.

    Basic of all those problems is that they claim for Ancient Greek, Macedonian and Minor Asia History, how they are descent of ancient Greeks, how they are clean Hellenic nation and have never mixed, but it is very well known fact that countries with seas are the most mixed, since mountain countries like Macedonia are not mixed much.

    P S How can we steal Greek History?! No one can steal History, the truth always come on surface.Macedonians do not claim, Alexander the Great was Macedonian and Macedonians are descents of Macedonians, Archaeological evidences show continuity in sceletetion, that means no one come in big number in Macedonia. So, Macedonians are descents of Ancient Macedonians and Alexander the Great.

    Alexander the Great is part of ancient Greek History because Macedonians occupied Greek polis, same like he is part of Egypt and Persian History, but he was not Egyptian, or Persian, or Greek, he was Macedonian.

    Greece is not a bad country, over the years it has had to put up with lots of intolerable neighbours.

    There are many areas within Greece that are very poor and have to make a living from tourism, fishing and farming, but they manage. The EEC has helped the country out over the last few years, with all the new members entering the EEC I expect that this will now come to an end in favour of these newer members.

    I visit Greece regularly and find the people very friendly and have made many good friends over the years, and still find it a wondefful place to visit.

    I am not Greek and I do not think Greece is a bad and poor country. I have done a number of researches on this country, and I don't care what anyone says, but this country is beautiful and full of riches. it is diverse too, but due to its amiable qualities, "some" other countries have felt great envy for its beauty and generosity and taken advantage of it(Greece). The misunderstanding between countries is natural and it'll be better for some of these countries to back off and let this country be. Conflict is always there and will never disappear. Thanks for asking!

    We are not BAD!!! Don't say things before you learn what both sides have to say... As for the misundersanding you have to now that USA have suggested the name ''New Macedonia'' and when the time came to speak they said Macedonia...

    Must be poor without Macedonian soil. Imagine that - 618 000 Greeks had flood over Aegean Macedonia in 1923. They have been settled on the Macedonian lands. Macedonians, refugees from Greece since 1949, are the real estate property owners over whole Aegean Macedonia. But, Greece doesn't allowed them to enjoy their property if they not declare as Greeks !

    AEGEAN PART OF MACEDONIA AFTER THE BALKAN WARS

    ________________________________________

    Partitions and Colonization

    After the Balkan Wars (1912-1913), the First World War (1914-1918) and especially after the Peace Treaties of Lausanne (1923), which gave the Macedonian issue a central place, there began a great ethnic cleansing of Macedonians, who in 1912 had numbered 374,000, from the Aegean part of Macedonia. Disregarding the principle of respect for minority rights within existing states, the negotiations in Lausanne accepted the principle of an obligatory resettlement of Christians from Turkey (Greeks, Turkophones, etc.) and of Moslems from Greece (Turks, Macedonian Moslems, etc.). Under the convention for obligatory emigration, 350,000 Moslems were expelled from the Aegean part of Macedonia. 40,000 of these were Macedonian Moslems. In place of the Macedonians expelled to Bulgaria and Turkey (a total of 126,000) the Greek state resettled 618,000 persons of Greek and non-Greek origin in the Aegean part of Macedonia. This heterogeneous population, colonized in the Aegean part of Macedonia in the period between the two world wars, came from other parts of Greece, as well as from Asia Minor, the Black Sea region, the Caucasus, western Thrace, Bulgaria and other places. The large majority of the refugee Christian population was settled in villages throughout the Aegean part of Macedonia, thus creating what has become known as the village, or agricultural, colonization; and a smaller number were colonized in towns, creating the so-called urban colonization. 134 This large colonization effected by Greece resulted in a major change in the historical status of the Macedonian language. Once the language used by most, it was now afforded only the status of the language of a minority, or the status of a family language, which was spoken by 240,000 Macedonians. The large ethnic changes were the cause of changes in the status of the Greek language as well. From being the language of a minority, it now became the most used language, being imposed even on the Armenians, the "Turkophones", the in-comers from among the various Caucasian peoples, etc. With the imposition of the Greek language and with the help of mixed marriages, a new Greek nation was being created in the Aegean part of Macedonia. The colonization by this population, whom the Macedonians called madziri (in-comers, foreigners), resulted in the Aegean part of Macedonia losing its Macedonian ethnic character. The Macedonians (240,000) became a minority; they were present as a majority only in the western part of the Aegean part of Macedonia (Kostur, Lerin and Voden regions). The large colonization brought about by the Greeks was followed by a law passed by the Greek government in 1926 on the change of the toponymy of the Aegean part of Macedonia. All villages, towns, rivers and mountains were renamed and given Greek names. The Greek state achieved this through a policy of state terror. As early as the period of the Balkan War of 1913 Greece had begun the ethnic genocide of the Macedonian people. The cruelty displayed by the Greek soldiers in their dealings towards the Macedonian people was merciless. Following the political partition of Macedonia in 1913, Greece launched upon an active policy of the denial of the nationality and the assimilation of the Macedonians. The name Macedonian and the Macedonian language were prohibited and the Macedonians were referred to as Bulgarians, Slavophone Greeks or simply "endopes" (natives). At the same time, all the Macedonians were forced to change their names and surnames, the latter having to end in -is, -os or -poulos. With the denial of the Macedonian nation went the non-recognition of the Macedonian language. It was prohibited, its standing was minimized and it was considered a barbarian language, unworthy of a cultured and civilized citizen. Its use in personal communication, between parents and children, among villagers, at weddings and funerals, was strictly forbidden. Defiance of this ban produced Draconian measures, ranging from moral and mental maltreatment to a "language tax" on each Macedonian word that was uttered. The written use of Macedonian was also strictly prohibited, and Macedonian literacy was being eliminated from the churches, monuments and tombstones. All the churches were given Greek names. The attacks on the Macedonian language culminated at the time of Ioannis Metaxas (1936). General Metaxas banned the use of Macedonian not only in everyday life in the villages, in the market-place, in ordinary and natural human communications and at funerals, but also within the family circle. Adult Macedonians, regardless of their age, were forced to attend what were known as evening schools and to learn "the melodious Greek language". The violation of the ban on the use of the Macedonian language in the villages, market-places or the closed circle of the family caused great numbers of Macedonians to be convicted and deported to desolate Greek islands.
