An interesting Russian news article about Dokdo. Also, Korean fighter jets had to scramble to warn a Japanese military jet away from Dokdo on the day Japan's Shimane prefecture passed the Takeshima bill. Apparently, Japan's ultra-conservatives are keeping themselves busy fighting not only Korea but also China and Russia.
I forgot to mention that 2005 is the Japan-Korea Friendship Year. As the popular saying goes, who needs enemies when you have friends like this?
