Top Ten Countries That Might Own Dokdo or Takeshimalinuxlovemin
The Top Ten
Silla, ancient Korean country, found Dokdo about 85000 years ago. However, Japanese said that they found Takeshima about 2years ago. Korea found it almost 720000 years before!
Dokdo was originally Korean Territory before Japanese annexed Dokdo island in order to catch sea lions which was a trend that was going on that time. Japan denies the fact that they invaded Korea and actually helped Korea industrialize. They deny the fact that they took Korean, Chinese and other women and used them as a war time sex slave. They neither apologized nor compensated enough (they compensated $1 and that was it). They also took Korean men and forced them labor.
Japanese did horrible things to the Koreans, Chinese, and other countries.
For example, in the Japanese's Army unit 731, Japanese committed biological and chemical experiments on the people of the land that they conquered. They called Maruta which means wooden block in Japanese. Japanese never thought Koreans, Chinese as humans but wooden blocks.
Japanese government is teaching Japanese children and students the false fact and they made their textbook as if they didn't start the war. They would ...more
For 2,000 years, Dokdo has been Korean territory. In the book, "The history of three countries of Korea" published at 1,145 A. D by the government of the ancient Korea, the Korean government declare that two islands in the East sea had been founded and captured by the Korean general whose name is Sabu Lee in 512 A.D.. The Korean government also has already declared two islands belongs to Korea. A number of the books about Korean history, the territorial maps and the public articles by both the Korean and the Japanese government from the ancient to the nowadays agreed that fact.
But in 1905 when Japan invaded in Korea and captured the diplomatic right of Korea, the Japanese government declares that Dokdo belongs to Japan and insists that her name is not Dokdo but Takeshima without any agreement. It is because that Japan wants to earn the strategic point in East Sea against Russia in the time of Russia-Japan war. In WW2, the international forces such as USA, Soviet ...more
The only reason Korea refuses to go to an international court against Japan is because Korea has nothing to gain rom it. It is irrational to go all means just to clarify what is yours, even if you have full control over it. From the 5th century, it is recorded in a parchment that Silla (an ancient part of what is now Korea) have traveled to the Liancourt Rocks (AKA Dokdo or Takeshima) and have claimed ownership of it.V 290 Comments
Takeshima belongs to Japan.
In my opinion, it is totally 'nonsense' that both citizens try to show their proof here like 'We firstly found this island xx years ago... Or They illegally invaded the island after... Etc... ' as both side completely believe the island belongs to their side. I think only a third party which has an unprejudiced eye (International Court of Justice) can make a fair judgement for this kind of issue. Japan is now preparing for bringing this issue to ICJ, but sadly Korea consistently refuse to have ICJ make a decision. Why? I think this Japan's bringing the issue to ICJ is the MOST peaceful and understandable way to solve this conflict. I hope Korea comes to ICJ, please.
I totally understand the S. Korean claim but unfortunately the great people of S Korea are being politically brainwashed and lied to by their untrustworthy government who want to somehow build up a false great past and national pride by fabricating history( to gain political supporters). Infact the majority of the population lived as uneducated poverty stricken nomads just a mere 100 years ago(which is no bad thing) and thus were easily annexed by the Japanese during a time of imperialism. The simple fact is that by International Law Japan has every and all rights legally. The S Korean government knows this and this is why they don't take the matter to the international courts.
Please don't let hatred and jealously pollute the truth.
In 1905, the government of Japan declared the possession of Takeshima. At that time, all of countries, including Korea, did not object to that.
On the other hand, Korean govt insisted that Dokdo belongs to Korea since 1900. However, the island where Korean govt did is different from Takeshima.
After WWII, by Treaty of San Francisco, Japan abandoned territory acquired in the war. But Takeshima was excluded from that subject. (cf. "Rusk documents")
Korean govt objected to the decision, and occupied Takeshima by exercising military power. U.S. and Japanese govt have been saying that occupation by Korea is illegal, and requesting to refer the territorial dispute to the International Court of Justice.

Not Spanish neither Portuguese just Korean or maybe Japanese.
I think Takeshima is a territory in Spain or Japan.
TO be honest... Dokdo is Koreans
