Brave Islanders of Daemado (Tsushima) Fight Off Austronesian Slavers!

Post by Paradox on Thu Aug 27, 2015 8:06 pm

Early this morning, word was received from a messenger that Austronesian Slavers landed on Daemado island and attempted to enslave the population. The brave villagers of the island went out under the cover of the night on their fishing ships and overpowered the skeleton crews of the ships, freeing the captured islanders and then setting the ships on fire. The citizens of Daemado have successfully hunted down all of the Austronesian slavers on the island. This slave raid occurred after the withdrawal of the Austronesians from the Korean-Japanese conflict and is a violation of the honorable rules of warfare. We in Joseon are announcing this incident to the rest of the world to warn our fellow civilized nations about the barbaric practices of the Austronesians so that the rest of the world knows that the Austronesians will not follow the rules of warfare and are not to be trusted.

Ruthless Attack on Unarmed Austronesians by Korean Islanders

Post by Paradox on Sun Aug 30, 2015 6:43 pm

The government of Joseon must announce our dishonorable deceit to the rest of the civilized world. The incident on Tsushima was orchestrated by us and in reality was an unprovoked attack by the islanders on unarmed Austronesian sailors seeking shelter from a storm. The attack can not be justified in any way and we issue our formal apology to the government of Austronesia for the loss of life caused by Korean citizens.

His Excellency is disgusted by Joseon's treachery. Its untruthful accusations of heinous crimes are a clear insult to the Austronesian Empire and an affront to all those nations which practice honest, civilized diplomacy. Orchestrating such an attack on unarmed sailors is a serious act of aggression, and His Excellency supports any retaliatory acts that the Austronesian Empire may consider necessary.

We'd like to remind His Ecellency that the Joseon Kingdom is under protection of the Dai-Nippon Teikoku, and that any act exulating the terms of commonly accepted diplomacy will be vehemently adversed with all the necessary means.
While the Austronesian Empire surely has any reason to demand compensations, those must be just and not surpassing the offense.

His Royal Majesty the King wishes to enquire further into this event, in the interests of alleviating any confusion.
The sailors clearly must have had cannons upon their ships, to fend off pirate attacks, but we assume that by unarmed you mean to say that these were not military vessels. Of course, owing to the Austronesian Empire withdrawing from the war, any military vessels in the region would be, of course, in violation of the sovereignty of Korea and therefore fair game. Therefore, we conclude that these were merchantmen, lightly armed. We invite corrections to this conclusion.
This raises further problems, however.

Firstly, the matter of the guilt of the Austronesian government. If this attack was carried out by villagers upon the island on merchantmen in distress, then it cannot be said that the Korean government orchestrated the attack, as they not only would have used soldiers instead of mere villagers had they planned the attack, but would have had no way of knowing that the merchantmen would come to bother near the island and be forced to anchor nearby.
It is strange, then, that the Korean government is said to have "orchestrated" the attack. That would imply a degree of planning and forethought on the part of the government, as opposed to an attack of impulse by villagers.

Secondly, the matter of why these merchantmen were off the coast of Tsushima in the first place. They must have been aware that the waters of that region of sea were in a state of war, and any merchantmen would have avoided the area. Indeed, it is exceptionally doubtful that they would even undertake such a risky voyage. Why make a route to China through Korea, who they had just recently been at war with, when several friendly Japanese ports remained open to them? Why take that risk?

Thirdly and finally, if the Korean government did not orchestrate the attack, as we have outlined we believe it is very likely that they could not have, then why would the villagers of the island attack? Why would the villagers risk attacking, unprovoked, a number of Austronesian merchant vessels? The vessels must have been guarded, of course, and the notion that any traders going unarmed whatsoever, nevermind through war-torn sea, is very suspect.

So, if we have a group of guarded Austronesian vessels anchored off the coast of Tsushima, why would the villagers risk an attack? What would they gain by fighting? No, it seems to us that there must be more to this matter. The vessels could not have been unarmed, or pirates would have taken them long before they arrived. The villagers could not have been under orders from their liege, for their liege had no way of knowing that the Austronesian vessels would arrive. The villagers would not have attacked the vessels without serious incentive (and how could they retrieve plunder from burnt ships?). Finally, the ships by rights had no reason to be in the area in the first place.

Yet, despite this, we have a confession from the Korean government at orchestrating the attack. What pieces of information have not reached us?
For it stands to reason that, if Austronesian vessels had attacked the villagers, then the villagers would have defended themselves must bitterly, and then the Japanese government having won its war to reclaim territory would have aided the already damaged reputation of their Austronesian allies. We mean no accusation, of course, but with the information we have, it seems to be a possibility.
The Austronesians breaking their oath to withdraw from the war would not be a strange thing, as they had already shown themselves to be of an untrustworthy character by declaring war even after they had offered the hand of friendship.
