Because you failed to inform with accuracy, and without bigotry and prejudice, the American public that:

1) Over 120 Greek-owned enterprises have invested in FYROM. Greece is the biggest investor and employer in FYROM today employing over 20.000 workers.

2) If Chinatown, or Little Italy in NYC declared independence everybody would laugh their heart out. Now you are screaming foul.

When Absolut Vodka published their ad, pictured above, many American citizens were outraged from their map, showing many US states belonging to Mexico. Why you deny us the same right to protest and oppose a bunch of morons from the George Soros foundation that they want to eaxpand their fly-by-night operation, spinned around as a "Republic" and "Democracy", that wants to expand all over the northern Greece cities of Thessaloniki, Florina and Kastoria.

(Pictured above the Absolut ad is the USMC map "for military use only" of the Greater Macedonia that wants to "expand" overtaking 40% of the Hellenic Republic, which is a NATO member and a European Union member).
3)Ignorance is pronouncing something shameful without even addressing the issue, and we are very sorry to tell you that the NYTimes has become the hotbed of ignorance over the last several years.
4) Greece is a long time ally of USA and a European Union partner. You should never forget that.

5) We are very happy that we disappointed President George Bush and his cabinet-a corrupted politician whose actions crippled and destroyed the American economy, and sent straight to the grave 4.000 young Americans in the Iraq war.
6) The choice of one state alone-FYROM- to monopolize the name "Macedonia"-the largest part of which lies outside its borders-in Hellenic Republic-neither reflects geographical and political reality, nor contributes to stability in the Balkans. Unless you don't want stability in the Balkans...

Shame On Greece: Messing With Macedonia
The Editorial Board
The Macedonians walked out of the NATO summit on Thursday and we can’t say we blame them.
Croatia and Albania were granted membership in the western alliance at a leaders’ meeting in Bucharest, but Macedonia was barred for an absurd reason: Greece doesn’t like its name.
That decision shames Greece and it dishonors NATO, which has far more serious problems and challenges to worry about.
The name “Macedonia,” is shared by the former Yugoslav republic and by northern Greece. From the moment the former-Yugoslav Macedonia declared independence in 1991, the Greeks — reflecting byzantine Balkan politics — vehemently objected to the new state’s use of a name and symbols they regard as theirs.
As a result, the United Nations provisionally designated the country as “the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” — or, rather uneuphonically: FYROM.
Athens has since normalized relations and many countries, including the United States, have abandoned the clumsy FYROM in favor of Republic of Macedonia, which is what Macedonia calls itself.
A United Nations mediator tried to work out a compromise but in the end, Greece — a NATO member since 1952 — exercised its veto. The alliance operates on consensus.
Tiny Macedonia doesn’t threaten Greece under any name. In fact, bringing it into the NATO fold would enhance regional stability. Now, there are concerns Macedonia’s failure to gain alliance membership could fan nationalism and anti-Western sentiment as well as jeopardize its ability to join the European Union.
President Bush and European leaders should have worked harder at finding a solution to this corrosive problem before Greece exercised its veto.
Now they must ratchet up the pressure on Greece to achieve that compromise so that NATO’s insult to Macedonia is reversed as quickly as possible.
