This started as a joke in another thread, but it raised an interesting question, at least for me:
We all know the reason for the quarrel between Greece and FYROM (AKA Macedonia) over the latter's name. What interests me to know is whether this peculiar quarrel is led by politicians (as always), or whether it's genuine, meaning that the people in both countries really care about this issue.
So, I would like to hear my Greek friends' take on this issue, and if there's also anyone here from FYROM, you are also welcome.
Just please don't turn this thread into a flame war, as it's not its purpose.
The people in both countries are more concerned about their stomachs being filled with food and money to be able to go out and have a good time.
There is a war going on in Iraq, a famine in Africa,
North Korea are conducting nuclear tests, the planet is changing from global warning and a genocide is being executed in Sudan.

Both true but that doesnt mean that nothing bad is going to happen to you if bad things happen around the world.Thats the kind of thinking that brought the problem to it current status.Originally Posted by EverGreen
Macedonia is a geographical region which today is part in Greece part in Fyrom. Tito referred to the former Yugoslavia residents of the region as Macedonians,which is odd because the slavic people came to that place some 1000yrs after Great Alexander lived,during the byzantine period.Noone in Greece paid any attention to the subject so some years ago when Yugoslavia split up they chose the name Macedonia and the star of Vergina as a flag-which they changed later.
So its not like we wake up and fall to sleep thinking the matter but more like thinking how this issue could escalate later on;Fyrom demanding to "free" the rest of macedonia,like in maps I've seen with Fyrom also owning Greek territory from Kavala to Larissa.
