    Do you accept Dardanians for such roles in USA?

    Now liberated we get to call it what it always was and that is Dardania - surviving empires across millenniums.

    On a more pragmatic and practical note, the present name that you stated has no meaning in Albanian. A bit strange this fact do not you think? The name means Black Bird (Albanian Black Eagle) but does so in Slavic.

    The direct analogy would be for instance instead of United States someone deciding to call your country as Soyedinennyye Shtaty instead. Now the meaning is the same, but would Soyedinennyye Shtaty do for you?
    I can dig Soyedinennyye Shtaty.

    Really? You would like your country to be represented with a minority language in USA?

    I know it would never happen, but I would like it. It would throw off our enemies for a little bit too.

    It's gonna be a long week between waiting on the UN inspectors, and seeing how Obama holds up in his interviews. Moral of the story is nobody's on the presidents side.
    The UN is only expected to state whether chemical weapons had been used, not who used them. They are actually investigating three incidents that have occurred over the last 6 months.

    Not the point.
    The president needs to show some balls. And what better way then to "make a statement" in the ME.
    He needs a win for his legacy. Something other than failed gun measures, failed foriegn policy, treated like a annoying litte brother to Putin.
    Oh, and Obama care that may very well bankrupt more people and businesses than get medical help for.

    Obama already has his legacy well established and bombing another UN nation without a clear plan for victory will just add to it.

    Means "United States" but in Russian. Just like this "Kossovo" means "Black Bird" but in Slavic.

    See the meaning uses a minority language as an outlet to communicate itself? The outlet/language is not representative of the majority of the population? Not to mention that "Black Bird" is more related to a flag rather than the Dardanian people.

    Hence Dardania is a more direct approach for this country.
