  1. http://www.ekathimerini.com/229783/opinion/ekathimerini/comment/the-us-congress-and-the-name-deal I am not happy with the deal, but I am a realist as well, the above commentary is making some valid points
  2. This is just stupid and another lost opportunity for Greece

  4. Greek gov’t survives vote of no confidence but loses an MP http://www.ekathimerini.com/229747/article/ekathimerini/news/greek-govt-survives-vote-of-no-confidence-but-loses-an-mp Poll: 73.2 percent of respondents said they disagree with the use of the term “Macedonia” http://www.ekathimerini.com/229746/article/ekathimerini/news/seven-in-10-greeks-opposed-to-north-macedonia-poll-shows
  5. been following this issue from day one, had a whole folder of bookmarks that I have not visited in a long time, 9-10 years, interesting all of the Greek links I had saved dedicated on the topic did not work, that tells you something by itself
  6. To answer your priority question, this has more to do with pressure from the US & EU, they want FYROM under the influence of the west, and not Russia. Just hope that Greece made a smart deal with the EU and the US. One other thing factoring is that Greece and the US are cozying up, all because Turkey is being difficult with American interests (S-400 missile system, comments about Israel, Syria,...), but all this is potentially temporary. Tsipras seems like he is always eager to please leaders from more powerful nations. I agree there are more pressing issues, not sure if they can fix them. The economy will take many more years, and the Turks are unwilling to be civilized and moral. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macedonia_naming_dispute
  7. this situation does not allow for any winners. At the end of the day smart and educated people know what is what, and the masses will be confused about the topic. I did not support Syriza, would not have voted for them, at the end they are another Pasok, and lets not kid our selves ND has been mostly a failure. When it comes to Macedonia they all failed! But 26 years later this is as close to the best any Greek government could have done. And an argument could have been made that PASOK & ND should have taken care of this back in the 70s and 80s with Yugoslavia, before things got out of hand. Another big reason this has not gone so well is Greeks political polarization, in a country like the US there is a price to pay for politics being applied on national issues, in Greece it has often been disastrous, they infighted during almost every major war and during every national travesty. Look at the Greek Economy disaster, at the end, ND, PASOK and now Tsipras have done as the EU (Germans) and IMF has ordered them to do, every single one of them, yet as opposition parties they have all been obstructionists and making false promises while providing no solutions, at the end of the day Greek voters have put them in place and have tolerated stupidity and party over country thinking. http://www.ekathimerini.com/229710/opinion/ekathimerini/comment/lets-move-forward-at-last
  8. About Greeks in Macedonia, while they were the majority during the Balkan wars, there were sizable minorities of Slavs, Turks, Jews in Thessaloniki, and others. The influx of Greeks from Asia Minor and Pontus definitely changed the demographics, not just in Macedonia, but most of central Greece, northern Greece including several large Athenian neighborhoods and "suburbs". For historical reasons during this time of the year I am always reading about them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_exchange_between_Greece_and_Turkey https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontic_Greeks https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minorities_in_Greece
  9. interesting stuff, I suspect as science improves and more discoveries are made, eventually we may have a better picture or we may simply debate the topic for ions

    Has been very quiet here lately

    Happy New Year! Not declaring I am back, but a few things kept me away. 1) I had a bad job second half of 2015, got a new job that turned out to be for a terrible company, Oct of 2017 landed a good job at a mostly good company, but busy at work 2) We Americans elected a racist, sexist, corrupt, idiot... for president, it has diverted my attention a bit 3) More life stuff, a couple of extended hospital visits by mother, new puppy, kid sports, oldest kid going to college, wife getting a job, so more for me to do at home, ...
  11. World of Kemp great blog!!!
  12. When I last visited, I read Ajax last post here and I thought, wow he might have turned a leaf. But then you visit the other election thread and you realize it is the old Ajax

    America just got greater.

    This American, that has voted at every election since 1992, is completely disappointed and embarrassed at what happened. This by far is the worst election in recent US history. His is a racist, sexual predator, a complete embarrassment!

    America just got greater.

    Honest? Are you kidding me? NEVER have I seen a politician lie so much, never. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/lists/people/comparing-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-truth-o-met/ He was the worst politician out of the 15 running from the Republican side, and there were some horrendous candidates as well as some good ones.
