GUEST,Sledge What's up with Korea? (93* d) RE: What's up with Korea? 31 May 04

I think you are referring to Sahkalin Island that used to be split between Russian and Japan, at the end of WWII Russia over-ran the Island as part of its support for the US efforts in the Pacific, and kept it.

I've been there and its quite wild on the whole, a giant box of natural recourses just awaiting exploitation, very beatiful. Used to house a great many prison camps, some of which are still visible from the train as you move up the island.

Japan definately wants it back, the oil potential is quite large.
