Thank you for covering important facts that are purposely trivialised or ignored in the propaganda media. The oceanic East Asian countries have had unsolved disputes with each other. For example Japan has disputes of island ownership with Taiwan, South Korea, and Russia. But the most important fact many overlooked in regards China's ADIZ is that Japan unilaterally expanded their ADIZ first in 2011 which flared the Diaoyu/Senkaku dispute. Japan's ADIZ is enormous disguised as a growing territorial claim and itself exposing hypocrisy and use of double standards here. Look at Japan's ADIZ on a map to see for yourself.
Excellent and truful report of the history regarding who actually owns the islands by Pepe. Keep up the good work.
As usual with Mr Escobar, some facts and a lot of spin. All nations search for and try to acquire territory. Was there some magical point in the past where this became evil and the previous borders declared moral and just? Russia has behaved just as badly with islands it took from Japan, any mention? China is smart and forward thinking to expand its declared boundaries, Japan and US are evil when they do it? Grow up Mr Escobar.
Well summed up sir.
