Another side in celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall

It has been overwhelming report of the 20th celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Leaders from the "Western" world all joined together saying this and that.

However, every celebration assumed something good/wanted has happened or something bad/unwanted has not happened or ended. In the case of the Berlin Wall, what the World sees is how people defeated communism, dictatorship, world with no freedom, and Germans finally united. On the other side, there is voice saying that celebrating the unification of Germany is a kind of Nationalism. Behind such claim, there is a much deeper value that worth our attention and reflection.
