I, personally, would like to see the myth subjected to a bit of scrutiny.

As for the following comment:

"On the other hand, the point that Korea never invaded anther country
is the oft-heard counter point.  And that, to their credit, is
strikingly true."

Does this refer exclusively to post-668? If not, we have the additional
complications of the invasions/conquests of KoguryO, Paekche, T'amna, etc.
And, finally, (a pet question) how do we explain the title Kwanggaet'o?
