    What bit do you disagree with? That the liberation from the previous thirty five year Japanese occupation was a good thing? That Korean reunification would be a good thing?
    You may not see it as swerving, but I do! Your attempt to digress is pitiable, IMO.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I was, actually, interested in hearing your view on both aspects. I posted the OP to generate discussion, after all.

    You want discussion? Here's something to discuss!

    As I'm exceedingly angry, I'll refrain from further comment on this subject at present.

    Shall I?

    ForumGarden offers its congratulations to The Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the occasion of the seventieth anniversary of liberation from the previous thirty five year Japanese occupation. - the liberation was welcome? We approve the liberation? The previous occupation was abhorrent?

    The government has maintained a progressively non-aligned stance in the face of uninterrupted aggression by the Capitalist West and the continued occupation of the southern half of its country by foreign forces. - NK is non-aligned? It has, year by year, been more and more so? Has the Capitalist West for a moment stopped attempting to bring down the NK government and I missed it while blinking? Has SK been free of foreign occupying troops since the end of the Korean Civil War?

    To have retained its independence throughout that period has involved suffering and vigilance on the part of the whole population, anything else would have led to a rapid defeat. Was there no suffering? I thought people highlighted the suffering of the population of NK. Would the government of NK, and its non-aligned stance, not have rapidly fallen had the armed forces not been so perpetually vigilant?

    I urge The Democratic People's Republic of Korea to continue to pursue the reunification of its country. NK seeks reunification, yes? Reunification would be desirable? No?

    The re-establishment of a single government across the whole of the Korean Peninsula should be the the desire of every Korean. Diplomacy leading to reunification, unfettered by foreign interference in the internal affairs of the Korea, is an urgent priority, and the present moment is an ideal time to restart these negotiations. - Truly I have no idea what bit of this you can take exception to.

    Have a try.

    Re: Seventy years

    I'm in my sixtieth year now and I recall rather distinctly that life in the past was fun without all the gadgets technology offers. I didn't miss them, of course, because, well, they didn't exist then, but I'll tell you, I do enjoy life today with what's there. My car doesn't cross lines on the highway unless the blinker is on, and the cruise control is adaptive in that it will maintain distance from the car in front of it all the way to stopping on its own and going again without input from the driver.

    The people of North Korea, if they don't have access to these new technologies, that's too bad for them. I think I'd rather be here than there.

    No.

    Telling me to reed something isn't discussion.

    By all means discuss the post you object to. As far as I can tell you have said you dislike my phraseology, taking it to mean that I have tried to speak on your behalf. You've said nothing whatever about the content of the post itself.
