A colonization starts wit military occupation. Japanese lost and had no time to colonize.
so you agree that Thailand wasn’t colonized

Thai was never colonized....555...big joke.

I knew a lot of them, they bought huge quantities of grapes and made wine at home. People only care when caugh...

Thai and Farang, I have complained and in two I was simply told if you don't like you don't have to come here, so I don't.
