It seems like the people governing Japan at the moment are a bunch of inconsistent, Korean-ass-kissing pussies. Teaching Japanese children the truth of Takeshima should be an uncompromising responsibility of the Japanese government.

Not teaching the truth of Takeshima for fear of Korean displeasure is an extremely cowardly act.
