I think it is the only real story on Dokdo. I am from Japan and this is real story but Japan was not only country to blame, It was a package. Do reaseach Koreans! Please.

This is Korean history like you have never seen. He talks about how the Koreans who worked with the Japanese during Japan’s occupation of Korea gained positions of power with the Americans and became the rich and powerful Koreans. He talks about Dictator Park, the new Presidents father even had a Japanese name. Most of Korea’s history remains secret for a reason! That is because the Koreans ruling don’t want the world to know the true history of the country. Best article I have seen on Dokdo, Koreans just want blame Japan. And the Koreans who want this lie continued actually worked happily with Japan. Lies covered with more lies. Thank you topix for helping get this info out. We could not do it without you.

That is a great article posted by KJIU. It just goes to show people that this Dokdo situation has more elements to it. Koreans only want to blame Japan. They want to forget the America worked with Japan to enslave them.

What is not mentioned in the article is that because Japan colonized Korea before the country was officially divided by Russia/America after World War 2, these boundary issues led to the Korean War/Conflict killing millions and destroying the country and forcing them to depend on foreign aid to rebuild. The writer of that article has done a great service by taking deep history and making it accessible. Congrads.
