Getting Snookered, Again?

Getting Snookered, Again?

As the State Department and the White House go dancing with the South Korean President in what could look like to some people as a war dance not in North Korea favor, questions should be answered that have been asked by many South Koreans: Were the North Koreans really behind the explosion of the South Korean sub?

In light of the US-South Korean war games and North Korea saber ratting, the LA Times has an article repeating doubts that have been raised about who is really responsible for the loss of the Korean sub. There are so many red flags in the US-South Korean evidence against North Korea.

"The critics, mostly but not all from the (South Korean government's) opposition, say it is unlikely that the impoverished North Korean regime could have pulled off a perfectly executed hit against a superior military power, sneaking a submarine into the area and slipping away without detection. They also wonder whether the evidence of a torpedo attack was misinterpreted, or even fabricated. 'I couldn't find the slightest sign of an explosion,' said Shin Sang-chul, a former shipbuilding executive-turned-investigative journalist. 'The sailors drowned to death. Their bodies were clean. We didn't even find dead fish in the sea.'"

What we don't need is for America to get snookered, again.
