They were stolen! Now, they must be returned!

Our story starts in the seas northeast of mainland Japan. The recent weeks had seen something between war and peace. You may know it better as the invasion of Kuriles and the refusal of the Kremlin to return them 70 years after the war has ended. The most important thing about it to know is that the Soviet intervened with Japan starting on August 8, 1945…The Soviet intervention.

In exchange for that intervention, the Soviets occupied South Sajajin. the Kuriles Islands, and gave the Chinese the empire of Manchukuo. (Remember: this was the last domain of the legitimate emperor of China) Pu-Yi, the last emperor of China. The communist rev exiled him. The Japanese made him emperor again.

That history aside, it is imperative to know the behavior between the two winners of the war: the United States and the Soviet Union. 

The United States had taken responsibility for being a winner by investing trillions of dollar in Japan's reconstruction, redacting a constitution, and returning the Okinawa island chain to its legitimate owner. The Russians, on the other side, were absolutely reluctant to negotiate.

Islands stolen from Japan
The head of the Russian parliament's foreign affairs committee's Dmitry Rogozin even stated:

"[Japan] must remember they lost the war and signed an unconditional surrender; they put themselves politically and territorially at the winners' mercy."

This was stated even though there is no signed peace document with the formerly formed Soviet Union and Japan. As such, it's no surprise that there is no peace with the Japanese concerning the Russians. 

Knowing this, we could curiously consider some outlandish possibilities.

1.- The Soviet Union never disappeared. That would be why the Soviets are reluctant to negotiate. They are still occupying the island chain illegally and they will not leave in peace, as countries would do after ending a war. (If you are wondering about why the US is still in Japan, be informed that they pay a hefty bill for their bases there.)

2.- The Russians are not Soviets anymore. They cannot negotiate peace because they are not the same people responsible. But in this case, the Kuriles should be returned immediately and without question, since the occupant power is not there anymore.

3.- The Russians are still the enemies of the Japanese. Even with all of our goodwill and years of relationships, they do not want to get along with the Japanese people. In such a case, the United States should not trust the Russians. This may sound like blackmail, but if the Russians are not willing to accept the cold war results, (search Crimea) then why should the Japanese accept the results of an illegal occupation?

I think the two nations should work together to find a solution despite this being exactly what the Russians do not want to do. Japan is well aware of the Russian side of the conflict. 

During the last September debate with the leadership rival and former LDP Secretary General Shigeru Ishaba, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had said, 

The Northern Territories are an important area for Russia's security. We're now focusing on the matter.

Japan is not making claims over things that happened 70 years ago. Japan isn't claiming sovereignty over Taiwan or other colonial territories. No….. Japan is claiming right over one of the essential states that were illegally occupied and stolen from it. As such, these states should be returned to Japan.

  1. Its pure fantasy for the japanese to think theyll get those islands back via dialogue what with Putin in charge of Russia. Good luck, but I suggest our nip friends invest in a military which isnt a laughing stock.

    1. Don’t whitewash the US involvement in Japan.
      The US purged lots of Japanese politicians for being ‘too nationalistic’…
      And even CENSORED newspapers from talking about the effects of radiation damage!
      I’ve been to Nagasaki and seen the news clippings.
      Furthermore, the atom bombs themselves were made by JEWISH scientists like Oppenheimer, Wigner, Teller, Segre, Rotblat, Weisskopf, and Von Neumann.
      Read “THE SETTING SUN” by OSAMU DAZAI for more info on the Japanese perspective after the war.
      In any case, the US needs to GET OUT and quit using Japan as an ‘unsinkable aircraft carrier’ to punish Best Korea for being Anti-Zionist.

      As for the Kurils, they’re ‘rightfully Japanese’, but also pretty much irrelevant, with no significant population. It’s basically like the Falklands and Argentina.
      There are much bigger issues to worry about.
