Why is FYROM outraged? Isnt that what they are called at the UN? Why arent they outraged at that? Why dont they complain to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to cross FYROM out of their seating in the UN? they dont seem to complain about the world seeing th plate FYROM but they complain if Greeks see it in the real Macedonia.

You will never see Macedonia in the UN without FYR before or after it. Its just stuck unto it like a leech.
