Although I feel quite embarrassed talking history with a nationalistic fanatic, here goes..

Lets start with where did the Macedonian kings come from.

You your self posted something about the Argead dynasty and here is where it all started from, read and weep you ignorant tool, lol.

Lets go to King Phillip now.. maybe you don’t know (more likely you pretend that you don’t) that Phillip means “someone who loves horses” in the GREEK language! How come a KING of a “foreign country” has a Greek name, strange that, no? lol 

Phillip hired the best tutors for Alexander.. why didn’t he find a Macedonian tutor but instead asked Arisotelis (a GREEK) to educate his son and heir?  

Lets talk a bit more about Phillip in a way that you haven't even considered:  

Although the Macedonian kingdom had existed for over 400 years, no much was known about them really because there was not much to tell..

Then, here comes Phillip!! A military genius that totally reformed the Macedonian army, the first army in history to be almost self sufficient until Mario's reforms of the Roman army and with never before seen tactical innovations.  

Now.. what you totally fail to understand because you're just an ignorant tool is this:

One of the most important thing that makes a great army is LOGISTICS!!

Napoleon said that “an army marches on its stomach” needing never ending supplies and for all these supplies to be there for the army, everything needs to be written down, counted and distributed.

Well, in order to do that you need a WRITTEN LANGUAGE you silly buffoon.. in what language did the Macedonians write?

Lets skip to warfare now and the Battle of Chaeronea that you’re on and on about, you ignoramus..

Innovative tactics win battles as we have a prime example of the Battle of Leuctra in 371 BCE where the Thebans under Brasidas and Epaminodas defeated the mighty Spartan army with a very innovative tactic, even though the Spartans had the high ground and were more numerous.

Then, later on at the Battle of Cynoscephalae in 197 BCE the Romans massacred the Macedonians.. you see, tactics..

When the combined Greek forces faced the Macedonians at Chaeronea not only they had no answers to the vey long spears but they had never faced a true Heavy Cavalry before; result: Macedonians 1- Greeks 0.. lol

Next we're going to talk about Demosthene's Third Philippic.

To be continued..
