During his meeting with Bulgarian immigrants in the St. Ivan of Rila Church in Chicago on Wednesday, the Sofia Mayor and informal leader of the GERB party outlined briefly his plan of turning the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia into a nation friendly to Bulgaria.
Borisov's said he drew his ideas in this respect from the Greek. His strategy would include buying out Macedonian companies, i.e. taking over its economy, and exerting political influence of Macedonia's desire to join NATO and the EU.
"We can achieve all our goals with economic instruments... We can thus make them recognize their real history... And then we will have no greater friend and better neighbor than Macedonia. They will themselves love us", the Sofia Mayor said as quoted by the BGNES news agency which cites a report of the Sega Daily.
Yes and those Slavic tribes migrated as far as the Peloponeses and Asia Minor.
They were gradual Hellenised and assimillated with the native Greek population.
Tripoli, Arahova, Tyrnavos and many other towns in Greece were founded by Slavic immigrants. Its true we are all interbred.
It wouldn't be good for Greece for those people to call themselves Bulgarian it is the same making the Kurd population of Eastern Turkey call themselves 'Turk'.
It really doesn't matter what they call themselves they will never change, they will still be forever living in their racist irrendentist fantasy world.
Remember the Belgian guy Dirk? I think Stealthy is Dirk. But then again, he might me a Swiss miss........you never know in cyberspace. That's why I like to see photos of the people I am chatting with. It avoids misunderstandings.
