Teach, your children well...

And futher the diplomatic problems between Korea and Japan...
Education minister Nariaki Nakayama called Saturday for teaching schoolchildren that Japan has sovereignty over the South Korean-held pair of islets in the Sea of Japan known as Takeshima in Japan and as Tokto in South Korea.

"It is the most fundamental among basics to teach to what location a country's territory stretches," Nakayama, minister of education, culture, sports, science and technology, said in reference to the sovereignty row over the 230,000-square-meter islets.

Thank you soooooo much Mister Education Minister, or should we just call him, "Numnut!"? Let's make Koizumi and the other diplomats jobs just that much harder.
