Can you imagine…

Can you imagine UN and EU to be persuaded by…

  • Mexico – to use the reference the Former British Colonies of United States of America for the USA, because the “America” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to the whole geographical area of America?
  • DR Congo – to use the reference the Former French Colony of Central Africa for the Central African Republic, because the “Africa” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to the whole geographical area of Africa?
  • USA – to use the reference the Former Spanish Colony of Mexico for the United Mexican States, because the “Mexico” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to south-western state of New Mexico?
  • USA – to use the reference the Former Soviet Republic of Georgia for the Republic of Georgia, because the “Georgia” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to their southern state of Georgia?
  • Azerbaijan – to use the reference the Former Ottoman Possession of Albania for the Republic of Albania, because the “Albania” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to the geographical region with that name in the Caucasus?
  • Macedonia – to use the reference the Former Yugoslav Republic of Montenegro for the Republic of Montenegro, because the “Montenegro” (in original: Crna Gora) part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to the Macedonian region of Crna Gora Mountain?
  • Sweden – to use the reference the Former Russian Province of Finland for the Republic of Finland, because of the claim that Santa Claus is the “most famous Finn,” while Sweden considers this cultural figure as its own?
  • France – to use the reference the Former Norman Possession of Great Britain for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, because the “Britain” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to the geographical area of Bretagne?
  • Russia – to use the reference the Former Ottoman Possession of Bulgaria for the Republic of Bulgaria, because the “Bulgaria” part of the regular name implies territorial pretensions to the geographical area covered by the historical country with the same name along Volga River?
  • Macedonia – to use the reference the Former Yugoslav Republic of for Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Serbia, because all of them were indeed republics in former Yugoslav federation, and it’s unfair only one of them to carry this identity burden.

No?

Then please raise your voice against the continuous discriminatory use of the “temporary” reference the “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” by both UN and EU when they refer to Republic of Macedonia.

Help put an end to the surreally ridiculous, but very damaging “name dispute” instigated by Greece.
