Japan to Build Floating Dokdo Island in Bizarre Territorial Threat

Japanese bomber launches from floating island
Korean defense officials have reacted with alarm today after reports in Japan's right-wing conservative Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper appeared to indicate the former and future colonial Asian aggressor is planning to build a 'mobile Dokdo Island' as part of a bizarre and ridiculous territorial stunt.

Described in code as a "super-large floating structure where hundreds of people can live", Japan is expected to sail the island into the waters off Korea's Dokdo – which it has repeatedly tried to rename Takeshima – thereby supposedly adding legitimacy to its flimsy claims at the United Nations. Currently, the Korean population of the Dokdo Islands stands at over 197,000 and the Japanese population is zero. However, experts have calculated that if Japan's new floating Dokdo island – described as the size of three soccer fields - has the same population density as Tokyo, Japanese people could soon outnumber Koreans in the Dokdo region, and if more Japanese floating islands are added, Korea's helpless and peaceful Dokdo Islands could even find themselves surrounded.

Rumors suggest Japan's floating island has been named 'Akagishima', and the soccer field threat may indicate that Japanese warmongers in Tokyo are already planning to use the flat so-called sports field as a runway for its bombers. Under the terms of its defeat by Korea and other countries in 1945, Japan may not be able to legally build aircraft carriers as they are regarded as offensive weapons, but unfortunately it seems the Americans who signed the peace agreement did not have the foresight to specify that the Japanese could not build floating islands with runways.

While the idea of building a floating island base may sound like something from a James Bond movie, this suits the Japanese leadership's villainous nature. And the construction companies behind it are predictably a who's-who of some of the most infamous names of the 20th century. Mitsubishi Heavy, which was founded under the samurai-led and ninja influenced Tokugawa Shogunate, built the Mitsubishi A6M or "Zero" fighter which led the ninja-style sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Meanwhile on its website their partner Kawasaki Heavy Industries still proudly promotes its development of the democracy-killing Hien aircraft during the war, which it says "was known for its world-class performance", although it seems to have forgotten about its other wartime achievements.

The two wartime weapon manufacturers are joined in the floating island project by Mitsui Group, which during the 1930s and 40s produced the for-export-only "Golden Bat" cigarettes aimed at China and Manchuria which contained small doses of opium or heroin in their mouthpiece in order to addict millions of unsuspecting consumers to narcotics and impair their judgment and that of generations of their descendents. With the hemp harvest having failed last year on Dokdo due to adverse weather and the downdraft from visiting President Lee Myung-bak's helicopter, there are fears that Tokyo's plan to anchor a fake floating Dokdo island just off the real Dokdo islands may be part of a plot to turn Korean citizens into addicts by giving them easy access to Japanese drugs.

Politicians in Seoul have called on the Defense Ministry to be ready with a military response to Tokyo's aggression, but with the Korean government in a state of confusion due to the transition from President Lee Myung-bak to Park Geun-hye next week, the Japanese have once again shown themselves to be adept at launching attacks when their enemies are least capable of defending themselves. As such, it is a clear indicator that while Japan's leaders claim they have put the past behind them, they still want to return to their traditional ways.

Political analysts expect that when the new government comes to power, it will act to stop Korea falling further behind in the floating island race, by commissioning an advanced generation of homegrown floating islands which can be deployed in the East Sea to counter the Japanese threat.
