Medvedev Sparked off Scathing Criticism in Japan…

Kuril Islands
Kuril Islands…

Dmitry Medvedev just  made a visit to the Kuril Islands. The islands are Russian territorial, so there should be no reason for Japan to be hopping up and down acting like the big bear stole your candy!

But since Japan still lays claims to the Southern Kuril Islands as part of its northern mainland territories. This makes for a sensitive issue in Japan. Meanwhile in not so past history, the islands became part of the USSR as a result of WWII, with Russia’s sovereignty over them entrenched in the UN Charter and many other international documents. Japan though seems to not agree with those documents…

So on this Monday when Medvedev went to Kunashir Island, a island that is part of the Kuril Islands. Medvedev set off the chickens squawking in the hen house…

So now the rumors are flying that Medvedev did it on purpose, that Medvedev wants war with Japan and that Medvedev is showing that he is a tough guy like Putin is…

I have got to say that I give Medvedev credit. Japan said, don’t you dare visit the Kuril Islands and Medvedev gave his answer in his actions…

They are my damn Islands and I will go there if I want to… 🙂

Just look at the news articles below that have to do with the happening. This is just a few articles by the way…

Hummm…
