Greeks do best job of burying themselves

Inhabitants of the village of Vevčani in the western extremity of the Republic of Macedonia staged a symbolic burial of Greece last Friday during carnival celebrations. This has further deteriorated the relations between the two countries, already tense because of the ongoing name dispute. The Greek Foreign Ministry has called on the government in Skopje to denounce the act. The Greeks can do a better job of digging their own grave anyway, comments blogger and journalist Stavros Theodorakis on the news portal "Burying Greece is a matter for Greek politicians, religious leaders, entrepreneurs, trade unionists, socialists, communists, liberals, right-wing extremists, left-wing extremists, but also for the Greek tax evaders, crooks, those wearing masks, the police, the bandits and in fact all Greeks. It may be that we Greeks differ from each other considerably, that we fight with each other, but over the last two years we have proven that we all agree on one thing: We ourselves - and no other - will bury Greece. ... Greece belongs to the Greeks and it will have a Greek burial. Both our friends and our enemies need to understand this."
