    South Korean Ferry Capsizes and Sinks - Torpedoed?

    Post by Charlie Foxtrot on Wed Apr 16, 2014 2:39 pm

    I'm watching reports of a South Korean ferry that has capsized and sunk off of Incheon, South Korea. Approximately 300 still missing, most of them high school students on holiday.

    Seas look to be fairly calm; Sea State 1-2. Survivors reported a loud bang, with the ferry immediately listing sharply to Port. South Korean and US military assets are conducting anti-submarine sweeps of the area.

    ?Remember when the NK's torpeoded the SK cutter a coupleyears ago. ?You think this is a repeat. ?Why would they do this. If it's true, it shows a truly depraved regime.

    Sane is an adjective unsuitable for the Norks.  

    They might be looking at the Libyan, Syrian and the Ukraine debacles and are seeing how weak this administration truly is. It would be insane, but their economy and leadership are bankrupt, and desperate people do desperate things. I hope they're not that desperate.

    I can't guess about the cause - but something seems to have poked a large hole in that ship.

    HA! Just heard on the news that they attribute the crash to the ferry hitting rocks. Wonder whether that really IS the cause.

    It's notable that the Media that was so quick to speculate about the disappearance of the Malaysian 777 (Aliens! With flight simulators!) has been remarkably, ahem... restrained on the cause of this disaster.
