Today’s Version Of Events

Antique Mine Sunk South Korean Ship



Pull the other one, it’s go bells on



I guess this lie d’jour is CYA in case video of the sunken ship leaks out, and the whole world sees that the side of South Korea’s corvette is blown IN, and not OUT, as would be the case with the “internal explosion” story from the other day.

Let’s face the truth: North Korea torpedoed the ship, sinking it and killing about 50 of the crew. And if they didn’t do it, then China did. Most likely culprit would be a submarine. All because the South Korean ship was too close to some imaginary line in the ocean.

But South Korea isn’t quite ready for an actual war with the Norks, so they’re backing down and creating cover stories left and right. No doubt with some major arm twisting coming from Washington DC.

So here is today’s lie. DO NOT attempt any research into military history that could prove that that bit of salt water was never mined. Never mind! Accept Today’s Truth and move on like a good world citizen.



Korean War mine ‘sunk’ South Korean navy ship

A mine dating back to the 1950-53 Korean War might have been responsible for the sinking of a South Korean naval patrol ship last weekend, according to the country’s defence minister.

His explanation came as hopes of finding 46 missing South Korean alive faded further after navy divers finally reached the upturned hull of the sunken ship but reported no signs of life within.

The 1,200-tonne corvett Cheonan sank on Friday night in the Yellow Sea along a disputed sea border with North Korea, sparking fears that Pyongyang had attacked the ship and temporarily sending shares lower in New York.

However, Kim Tae-Young, the defence minister, told a South Korean parliamentary committee that initial reports of a North Korean torpedo attack appeared unfounded, citing accounts from rescued sailors who had been operating the ship’s radar at the time of the explosion.

“It is possible that a North Korean sea mine could have drifted into our area,” he said, pointing out that North Korea had deployed some 3,000 Soviet mines in the Yellow Sea and the Sea of Japan during the war.

“Though many mines were removed, it must have been impossible to retrieve them all,” he added.

One mine was found in 1959 and another in 1984, the minister said, although an extensive South Korean search in 2008 did not trace any, however it was impossible to rule out that a mine could have come adrift from its mooring.




The UnTruth you must ignore here is that the South Korean Navy is unable to locate the North Korean Navy’s submarines, even with one of their anti-submarine ships like the Cheonan. To not ignore this would be to imply either that the crew was not doing their job, or that the ship’s detection equipment is not good enough. Both would be Questioning The State, an activity that is so forbidden that it is not possible to even think of it.

Instead you must believe with all your heart that an old mine, still active after 57 years, did the deed. No one is at fault. The mine had escaped detection for all that time even though this is some of the most heavily patrolled water in the world, under constant sonar scrutiny, and that several intense and specialized searches had failed to find it. Even though the last mine was found 26 years ago, others may still be out there waiting to serendipitously rust through their chains and come bobbing to the surface just as a South Korean Navy vessel comes by while accidentally sailing too close to the border. This is the Truth, there is no other Truth than this Truth.

Until tomorrow.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
