竹島問題の歴史

Welcome Message

Welcome to my blog.

This blog was created to provide a forum for sharing information and for discussing current and historical issues related to the dispute between Japan and Korea over Liancourt Rocks, which are a small grouping of rocky islets in the Sea of Japan. Japanese refer to the islets as "Takeshima" while Koreans refer to them as "Dokdo." All views are welcome, and comments may be made in any language, but personal attacks, foul language, and comments dealing with unrelated issues will be unwelcome and may be deleted. The goal is civil discussion and debate.

So far I have only created a frame for the blog, but I will slowly be filling it in as time goes on. The goal of the blog is not just to discuss and debate the issues, but also to collect and organize the old documents and maps related to the issues. That means I may be reposting things that some people may have already seen.

If you have any suggestions or have any good links to old documents or maps, please let me know by using the "Suggestion Box," which can be found on the right side of the page under the "Labels" category. If there are many suggestions, I may have to create a new suggestion box for each new month. I'll will just wait and see.

I hope this blog helps encourage healthy discussion and debate on the Dokdo/Takeshima Issue.

Sincerely,

Gerry Bevers

  2. Thanks, Ponta.

    I hope the discussion continues, but I also want to use this blog to organize all the maps and documents we have been talking about over the past year. We have talked about a lot of stuff, haven't we? :)

    Sure we have.
    In my opinion, your last post on Occidentalism , coupled with the article on Saninchou shinbun, was a fatal damage to Korean claim.
    All that is left for the proponent of Korean claim is to pick up some Japanese documents, take them out of context and put a spin on it.
    As I pointed out before, and as a Sankei jounalist seems to have realised, your logic is clear, and much easier to understand than Simojou.
    I have learnt the point of disputes on the issue from you, and
    I am very grateful for it.
    And I am looking forward to your new blog.
    I hope Korea will remember you as a
    teacher of scientific method and logical argument, an honest seeker for the truth under harsh social pressure, a teacher who know what it really means to be a patriot for Korea.
