South Korea believes North Korea torpedoed its ship

Reuters is reporting that South Korea is confirming what many of us had suspected. It's ship was torpedoed by North Korea, adding fuel to a difficult situation for the government of South Korea and the U.S.

South Korea's military believes a torpedo fired from a North Korean submarine sank its navy ship last month, based on intelligence gathered jointly with the United States, a news report said on Thursday.

The Yonhap news agency report appears to be the clearest sign yet that Seoul blames Pyongyang for the sinking, thought to have killed 46 sailors in what would be one of the deadliest incidents between the rivals since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

The military's intelligence arm sent the report of "certain" North Korean involvement to the presidential Blue House soon after the incident, Yonhap quoted a high-ranking military source as saying.

Can't wait for the analysis by the brilliant Chair of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, John Kerry, last seen permitting his leftwing aide, Fulton Armstrong to actively interfere with the domestic policies of one of our remaining friends in Central America, Honduras.

The Reuters report ends on this chilling note:

Yonhap said the South Korean and U.S. military suspected the North was stepping up drills to infiltrate a submarine south of the naval border, hidden among Chinese fishing boats, and wage a surprise attack against the South.
