BREAKING NEWS: North Korea ‘torpedos and sinks’ South Korean navy ship with 104 sailors on board

The nut jobs running things in the starving north and of course that’s means Kim Jong one dong whoever.  Whatcha thinks folks?  War between the two after all these years?  Prolly not. 

But a Moonbat Award to:  Kim Jong-il of N. Korea.  Jerk.

NORTH KOREAN ATTACK ON SHIP FROM SOUTH

Last updated at 4:23 PM on 26th March 2010

A South Korean naval ship with 104 on board was sinking today after a suspected torpedo attack by North Korea.

The 1,500-tonne vessel is going down near Baengnyeong island, with rescue crews fearing many sailors have died.

In apparent retaliation, the South Korean navy shot at an unidentified ship in the direction of North Korea.

The incident is viewed as a potential flashpoint which could plunge the two countries into all-out conflict.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said that it is not clear what caused the ship to sink. It is believed 59 sailors have been rescued.

South Korea’s government has convened an emergency meeting of security ministers, according to state television.

Authorities say the ship began sinking around 10:45 pm local time (1.45pm GMT) in the Yellow Sea.

The dramatic escalation between the two countries comes after North Korea has warned that it was bolstering its defences in response to joint South Korean-U.S. military drills that were held this month.

North Korea had already threatened ‘unprecedented nuclear strikes’ against its southern neighbour and the U.S over claims they are planning to topple the communist regime.

I was just going to post on this one but Peiper beat me to it. Lots of links on the story everywhere.

The Winnipeg Sun is reporting that several of the sailors were killed.

Reuters is saying that the South Koreans are now saying that they are not sure that the North Koreans were involved. Politics!

Wikipedia says this ship, the Cheonan, named for a city in NW South Korea, was a member of the Pohang class of corvettes. Global Security confirms this. The Pohang class ships are about 290 feet long, armed with one or two 76mm guns, 2 30mm or 40mm rapid fire guns, and a small batch of anti-ship missiles. Mainly they are used for coastal patrol and anti-submarine duty.

These are not large ships, but they are still quite a bit bigger than the 165 foot motor gunboats pictured on South Korean television (see Yahoo News link above) and at the Daily Mail link Peiper sourced.

Stay tuned to this story. My guess is it will all blow over, and that the sinking will be attributed to some sort of accident, even though I think it was a mine that did her in.

UPDATE: That didn’t take long! Now the claim is the ship suffered a wardrobe malfunction accidentally set off some explosives onboard. Uh huh, right. Sure. Right off the Nork’s coast. I’m sure they were set off accidentally. By a torpedo or an anti-ship missile accidentally coming through the side of the ship and blowing up. Politics. Probably got a call from Obama who told them “not now dammit!” It’s such an obvious lie.
