The implications of the above map are great since it tells the world that Greece, Bulgaria, and Albania occupy territories that the United States as a country recognizes the occupation indirectly approving their “liberation.” One could argue that it is indicative of a sloppy research work checking only the FYROM government and diaspora websites; probably it is. Nevertheless, the impression of such sloppy work is that the Armed Forces of the United States learned their “facts” that resulted from the FYROM Macedonism.
The Central Intelligence Agency of the United States printed a map of the FYROM drawing direct lineage of its people from the ancient Macedonians. The U.S. Government Printing Office still has it on sale. This map shows a column (right) that people responsible for that region have poor understanding of the issue.
