South Korea Blames North For Loss Of Corvette

Well, as I mentioned in my last post, things may be heating up between the two Koreas. In a new article on FoxNews, South Korean military are said to be bolstering their claims, with the aid of a Joint ROK-US investigation,  that a North Korean submarine torpedoed the South Korean Navy Corvette Cheonan.

South Korea suspects a North Korean torpedo caused the mysterious sinking of one of its navy ships last month, Reuters reported, citing South Korea’s Yonhap News.

The South Korean military points to intelligence gathered in a joint investigation with the United States, marking the strongest accusations yet that North Korea was behind the March 26 incident.

Fifty-eight of the ship’s crew were rescued while the ship was sinking and 38 bodies have been found, most of them last week, when the stern was raised from the water.  Eight crew members are still unaccounted for.

Until now, South Korean officials had not openly blamed the North for one of its worst naval disasters, though investigators had said the explosion was most likely external.

This has the potential to get very ugly, very quickly, unless the US & China can calm folks down.
