Posted in: Japan renews claim on South Korea-held island See in context

They can renew any claims they want, the fact still remains Dokdo still is lived on, administered, and owned by South Korea. PERIOD.

Alan Harrison: "When it comes to local disagreements regarding islands around Japan, many commenters keep referring to "international law". I think what they really mean is Japans version of international law."

Spot on. Because they keep saying, "Well... shucks... why doesn't SK go to the ICJ, as Japan has asked, to prove it's there's?" and then they turn around if the same is suggested for the island dispute with China and say, "Well, Japan doesn't need to go the ICJ because we know the islands are ours! There is no dispute!"

Well, likewise, SK sees no dispute, which makes sense. The islands are theirs, it's fact, and so they have no more need to entertain the idea there's a dispute than if you sat across the street from my house and claimed my car is yours and we should go to court over it.

Go and tell all those Korean lunatics to stop complaining about 36 years of Japanese days then.

 It assumed Dokdo was part of Japan because Japan had annexed the island in 1905.

And Imperial Korea said absolutely nothing about such annexation in 1905. Don't bother bringing up

things like it was under Imperial Japan already. Imperial Korea had all the rights to claim for it's territory if it believed the rocks belonged to it, as all they had lost then was it's diplomacy rights.

Let’s not be churlish, the idiom possession is nine-tenths of the law, rings true.

The Government of South Korea is not likely to subject or risk agreeing to any ICJ adjudication.

That would be open to the accusation, politically, that the Government of Japan has due cause.

There is a more rudimentary political principal at sake, the underlying reasoning for this posturing.

Both Governments must play out the same brutal, historic intolerant conflict without end or reason.

An open wound that scabs still have been picked, and will continue to be, for centuries to come.

Even in the midst of a pandemic.

Also worth noting that Korea wasn't a signatory to the San Francisco Treaty. The two Koreas were busy fighting each other over their own territory at the time....

Why should Korea trust the ICJ? These international entities sound grand, but there's no guarantee of impartiality. It's possible the judges there have there own personal reasons for siding with America (bigger world influence than Korea) and Japan (bigger world influence than Korea). And it was America's fault that Dokdo didn't revert to Korea in the Treaty of San Francisco. It assumed Dokdo was part of Japan because Japan had annexed the island in 1905. There is a book that everyone posting here should read (although it might be difficult to find): 'Territorial Issue Between Japan and Korea - Case of Takeshima/ Dokdo.' This was written by Seichu Naito, a graduate of Kyoto University and Professor Emeritus of Shimane University. It's a fairly neutral book, but was written to show the weak points of Japan's case. Take, for example, this:

"It is noteworthy that in the first draft of March 20, 1947 through the fifth draft of November 2, 1949, Takeshima/ Dokdo was on the list of specific islands to be renounced by Japan" in the San Francisco Peace Treaty. America, as usual, didn't have a clue what it was doing.

Like WHO siding with China?

Superb! Then how come South Korea's been stressing "This is THE International Consensus"?

So much for the reasoning to bash what you call revisionism

I do not have time to dispute all of his claims, but just one thing on the topic. The professor alludes that the 3rd island called 'Seokdo (stone island)' could exist south off Ulleung island (starting at 26 min at the video clip), but there are only 2 islands off Ulleung island: Jukdo and Dokdo.

The inaccurate distances on the old maps in the standards of the modern GPS can not justify his argument. Indeed, Seokdo (stone island) denoted Dokdo. The professor just tries to negate it with his ambiguous knowledge of linguistics which was not even his study area. To justify his own claim, he has to show any map of the 3rd island, but he can not. He seems to be ignorant of geology and geography. Look at the google map or other geomorphological profiles to realize that the 3rd island, whatever it is called, can not exist there. The area is a deep ocean, not a shallow coastal area.

Please take your time and watch the video again and again because you're completely misunderstanding his claim, rather then posting here with inaccurate knowledge.

MOFA site SJ linked already explains Takeshima is used to be called Matsushima and for those who understand Korean/Japanese, this Korean professor also explains pretty well about Takeshima

Both countries claim the island has been their own historically and under international law. How could one understand this?

Don't you realize it yet? SJ and SK 've been piling up lies over lies and deceiving not only the people in SK but also the entire world.

Why people here and there in the world are being swayed by this Lee Yong Soo who's been kept lying in front of UN Special Rapporteur Radhika Coomaraswamy, US House Committee, San Francisco City Council, South Korean central district court. Her constantly changing false testimonies are crimes considering the publicness of the occasions, and impacts on what international society ended up forming the false consensus.

And there's no reason mods of JT erase my post without mentioning any reason unless JT itself trying to hide inconvenient truths. Lee Yong Soo is just a accomplice with Chong Dae Hyup which coached all those women to testify as it wants. Lee Yong Soo herself admitted "I just spoke as they told me to say so" and complained " But Chong Dae Hyup doesn't protect me when people calls me a liar"

As a matter of fact, Several Korean professors filed charge against Lee Yong Soo and one more self-proclaimed victim and Chong Dae hyup at the end of last month in Seoul.

Those who blindly believe in Korean fake narratives should really wake up.

Posted in: U.S. Supreme Court allows extradition to Japan of Ghosn escape aides See in context

*"Ghosn made millions working for Nissan, living in Japan, a good life." Nissan was resurrected by him, made billions under his command while due to the Japanese remuneration practices he was the lowest paid auto industry helmsman during his tenure. Like in the communist countries where the politicians got paid symbolic wages and only way to get something form their work they had to resort to corruption Ghosn was making up for his losses by manipulating his income but not in a criminal way and not in a excessive way. If they paid him same money as other car tsars were paid he would not have to dance around accounting and tax laws. Any business person will understand that. He built a paradise for those that forced him out.*

Try to compare his remuneration with other major Japanese auto makers like Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Isuzu.

Not satisfied with it? How about comparing it with other Japanese CEO's in all fields in Japan?

Watching this and other news over the past couple of years it really seems very possible that South Korea is making a slow, steady, and firm turn towards alignment with China while simultaneously doing whatever they can to maintain amicable or better said tolerable relations with Japan and other potential trading partners.

Actually Several S.Korean individuals, academia +conservatives finally rose in revolt claiming that SK's own fake narratives are the cancer of all these mess. They are fighting against all odds. The posters here would be surprised with lies over lies in it's historical/present narratives. They know, without help of Japan/US/UN, they wouldn't be like what they are now. God bless them.

Posted in: S Korea seeks 'amicable solution' to comfort women issue with Japan See in context

South Korean justice (in the 1st place) and the government ( comes as next !) and several posters here never answer to this basic question. "What makes IJA comfort women different from those serving Korean/US/UN soldiers after 1945 on the battle fronts & battle fields " 

They just do legal makeshifts focusing only on the the letter completely ignoring the spirit of international agreement (signed or not signed, doesn't matter) 

It is not *two wrongs don't make a right argument *but is the essence of this issue.

How many former comfort women are still alive? It shouldn't be that difficult to come to a settlement.

Like I said, the process for the settlement does matter, meaning, Japan or any nations should not surrender to fake histories. In this very case, North Korea directly, China indirectly HAVE been pushing Japan to give it up to obey to THE history WRITTEN by the winners and the crooks.

Welcome anyone to state the very difference between Korean comfort women before/after 1945.

@SJ

 The term 'deal' may confuse some naive Japanese. The so-called "final and Irreversible" 2015 deal was just a form of press conference held by a few delegates from Abe and Park administration without any signed document, not to mention the approvals from the parliaments.

 

“International Law” itself does not have any signed documents ratified by UN(UN、sounds awkward when nations are not really united, does it? )

Don’t worry 2015 Comfort women agreement. IT was DONE under modern technology Everybody watched it where it’s been recorded and retrievable, broadcasted to the entire world which knows “ It was not just an oral promise”

Forget legal experts mumbling about “ How exactly the TREATY was closed between sovereign nations” , FYI, They all are not Japanese and sure when you say Japanese lawyers, it includes Koreans and Korean-Japanese.

For those who still like to blame Japan in comparison with Germany, don't be fooled any longer.

I say this once again. Prostitution was legal those days and comfort women, Yes, even more comfort women existed through 1945 serving for Korean/US/UN soldiers. And yet neither SK government nor any of those hypocrites act on behalf of the latter, drawing clear line between them. WHY is that? They must make Japan admit Korea's fake narrative as true with legal responsibilities for upcoming North Korea's turn of big campaign.

I wonder how fast some of these commenters will "get over it" if their families were raped and murdered, their royal bloodline ended, their culture destroyed, gun pointed at their head for speaking their language, and experimented as human test subjects?

5 years? 10 years?

Or maybe you'll remember it forever because you'll have STD from 100s of men that raped you on a daily basis? Or the tattoos that were forced on to your body whenever you disobeyed? Or that missing limb that was chopped from you being naughty?

Who are you to tell an entire nation to get over it? If you do a quick Google search into what Japan did during that war, you will NEVER forget about it.

Umm No. Don't Google search. Unless your families were ACTUALLY raped and murdered, their royal bloodline ended, their culture destroyed, gun pointed at their head for speaking their language, and experimented as human test subjects, or had STD from 100s of men that raped them on a daily basis. Or the tattoos that were forced on to their bodies whenever they disobeyed, Or that missing limb that was chopped from them being naughty, please shut up

Actually, the free world will side with Korea. The free world does not want to tolerate war crime deniers that are so prevalent in Japan. By escalating this dispute, more people around the world will get to know of Japan's dark side.

Umm No. The free world(The ideal world you wish which doesn't exist yet) is to side with the truth, not with the one-sided lunatic narrative. Thank you very much for using the term " war crime" which is supposed to mean inhumane crimes against civilians of opponents as opposed to " crimes during war”

So please tell us all. What were the fundamental difference between comfort women for Imperial Japanese Army and UN/US soldiers after 1945?
