: Mike, why are you doing this? You are finding
: the most painful problems for the Greeks and then
: trying to offend them.OK, perhaps you belong to
: one of more happy nations, who's history was not
: as cruel as that of Greeks. It doesn't mean that
: you have the right to teach them to live, you know.
What? I didn't make this sticker, I just saw it; don't kill the messenger.
Listen, Olympic Airways, an official institution full of government appointed
officials, put up this sticker in a place so as to be seen by as many people
as possible. It's an official statement with misleading and some might even
argue aggressive undertones which I find can't go uncontested. Are you offended
by my pointing this out? Do you agree with the contents, does it really reflect
Greek opinion, do you care if it is presented as such? Or don't you care at
all and should we just discuss filo pastry recipes?
: I recently saw an official (I think Olympic Airways) sticker, reading:
: : "Macedonia was Greek, is Greek, and always will be Greek."
: : Point out the two erroneous sub-statements, and the indeterminate part.
