Ah, the Korean nationalist is back on LL.
This Takeshima/Dokdo dispute will never be resolved, except perhaps at the end of a sword, which would end up messy for both Japan and Korea. Historically, neither country has much of a claim to the rocks. Nobody every lived there until just recently when South Korea started trying to justify its claim on the rocks, at which point the government put one person there, and they have to supply him heavily on a regular basis so that he can survive. In th More..e past, both Japanese and Korean fishermen used the island as an occasional harbor, and that's all they are worth.
With international law setting exclusive economic zones extending into the ocean, however, suddenly islands like this become very valuable. Exclusive fishing rights and exclusive rights to any natural gas, oil, or other seabed deposits around the islands are worth something. And so Japan and Korea suddenly both want some rocks out in the middle of the Sea of Japan that never mattered to anybody before this.
It's a stupid, silly argument that politicians in both countries use to stoke nationalism and secure their reelection. Neither side really wants to resolve the dispute. Doing so would mean losing a valuable campaign tool. And so we get Korean athletes blinded by nationalism violating the Olympic spirit by waving "Dokdo is Korean" banners and all other manner of idiocy about these islands that nobody can even survive on. Less..
@buzzardist Good backgroud story ! Compensated a downthumb for ya ! (Probably from that sole inhabitant of Takeshima/Dokdo)
i think whatever Romney decides will be the final sayso, and he'll prob say, "guys, china? hellooooo"
....and not a fuck was given....
Everybody is claiming territory from everybody. Let's just keep what they've got, you bunch of playground kids.
Rocks and fish.
You can't even do anything with those two pieces of rock.
We all know that island will become chinese in the end!!
