Ariel KyDear Tanaka-Sakai, Actually I think it's possible that the Cheonan was hit by friendly fire, although I suspected that it was from her sister corvette, the Sokcho, in one of those mishaps that can happen in live fire military exercises simulating actual war conditions. How did you establish that Operation Foal Eagle was prolonged until April 30? I had wondered if it was still being carried out when the Cheonan sank. Also, can you tell the difference between a nuclear-powered submarine and a submarine carrying nuclear warheads? I did a little fact-checking to verify an important part of your story, the part about the USS Columbia, the American submarine that supposedly sank, according to your speculations in this article.. Here's what I found: USS Columbia Returns to Pearl Harbor_By MC2(SW/AW/SCW) Ronald Gutridge_COMSUBPAC Public Affairs Release Date: 05/03/2010 PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii Los Angeles-class fast-attack nuclear powered submarine USS Columbia (SSN 771) returned to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Monday, May 3, following a six-month deployment to the western Pacific region. “This was an incredibly successful deployment from completing tasking important to national interests, to engaging our allies in a positive environment.” said Cmdr. Craig Blakely, Commanding Officer, USS Columbia. “Columbia performed superbly, demonstrating the versatility of the U.S. fast attack submarine.” “Almost 70% of the Columbia crew was on their first deployment, but you would never know from their performance,” said Blakely. “I am extremely proud of the conduct of the crew. Whether playing soccer against our fellow submariners in South Korea or keeping the ship safe during stressful deployed operations, everyone was professional.” Columbia, commissioned in 1995, was the last 688-class submarine to be built at Electric Boat Shipyard in Groton, CT. This submarine is one of the most versatile ships in the world, capable of numerous types of missions in a myriad of regions including long range Tomahawk strike operations, anti-submarine and surface ship tracking operations, surveillance and intelligence gathering, and even Special Forces insertions.
Arthur BorgesUm Ariel, a nuclear-powered vessel is one that uses a nuclear reactor to turn the propellors, light up light bulbs and do other cool stuff that needs electricity. A vessel carrying nuclear weapons is anything schlepping bombs around an ocean regardless of what the engine runs on. Although most commonly, nuclear weapons are carried on nuclear-powered vessels, Israel for example, carries them around in diesel-powered submarines from Germany.
Arthur BorgesAriel, the USS Columbia may well have returned to home port but the third buoy didn't. Moreover the ROK combat diver returned as a body. And so on.
TaihanStill, this whole theory hinges on a second shipwreck. If a US vessel was sunk, then a US vessel must be missing. Unless the vessel was secret, it must have come from somewhere, meaning its absence should have been noticed by now. Even if excuses for that absence have been given, eventually, the families of the crew members will ask for an explanation. You can't cover up the disappearance of an entire sub crew forever. It has been two months already. I am not saying that no other vessel has been sunk, but I am saying that this whole article seems to rely on hearsay and rumors rather than convincing argumentation.
Paul ArensonThe article certainly gives one reason to doubt the official story. However, it can easily lead to a dead end or "9-11 Truth type conspiracy theories unless the left is willing to go beyond this. Much of this is speculation and educated guessing, but it may never be able to be proved. What I mean by going beyond this is addressing the military posturing that is being used to justify a US presence in North East Asia. I am particularly concerned with Okinawa because there has been a blackout in my view in the Japanese media on the role of the Okinawa bases in murdering people in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Vietnam. US imperial rule goes unquestioned, and even the left tends to focus only on the rapes and the accidents, and not the fact that Japan's bases serve as staging areas for killing people. Thus an uneducated populace will roll over and let Hatoyama and company forcibly take over even more Okinawan land for the bases. I have had a few letters to the Japan Times rejected on this topic whereas others have gotten by. They allow criticism as long as it is not too specific. And when the criticism is of the US, they tend to reject the letters I have sent at least. I have also seen very few letters on this theme by others, wondering if there is an intentional blocking of anything that tells the truth about the bases For sure the Japan Times has CIA connections with the membership of two of its staff-publisher Ogasawara and editor Brad Glossserman in the CSIS Pacific Forum, which included Kissinger and Albright among others. Anyway, I would like to see more people on the left deal with the reality of the US presence in the region. It is my understanding that the Korean left, even though they are closer to any potential flashpoints, is much less accepting of US bases than people in Japan, who have been led to believe that the US presence here protects them. Yet we see very little on this. Of course one does not need to defend North Korea in order to show that military bases do NOT make for a safer South Korea and Japan, at least in my book. But I would like to see someone put this together in relation to the the Okinawa base issue. It is too much of a coincidence that this would happen as the base issue heats up, lending some credence to Tanaka's speculation. Of course, one does not need to reassure the world that North Korea is completely benign to debunk those who point to its behavior as a reason to keep US bases. paul arenson http://tokyoprogressive.org
nick baileyI was a bit surprised by the large chunks of torpedo that were shown as being recovered. Why wasn't it destroyed? But what do I know? The article makes quite a good 'who benefits' case.
Arthur BorgesA discussion forum at Pravda contains postings claiming that an Israeli submarine based in Cam Ranh Bay sank the Cheonan. If the USS Columbia did indeed return normally, perhaps someone should be counting the Israeli submarine fleet?

no-truth-in-newsThe ASIA TIMES had a similar story, comparing the photo of the recovered torpedo with the actual plans of that torpedo according to manufacturing specifications. We are not being told the truth by the U.S. State Department, i.e. Hillary. God help us if some kind of war actually starts over this false flag event. I can't take much more of this madness, I don't know about you.
Satoko NorimatsuEven Washington Post started to talk about the fact that there are different observations and theories about this incident, which is healthy. http://blog.washingtonpost.com/spy-talk/2010/05/asian_analysts_question_korea_torpedo_incident.html?hpid=news-col-blog Please see more important articles at this link: http://peacephilosophy.blogspot.com/2010/05/very-little-has-reported-in-english-on.html
YON LEENAMGood reasoning. At the initial stage, I read that President Lee demanded North Korea to admit it and apologise to South Korea What?, Just an apology for the loss of a naval warship and so many lives?
Punky BrewsterThe impossibility of all this is that whomever responsible could be murdered if they tried to cover up a friendly-fire incident in the way described. Why would anyone friggin risk their life when they can just say we screwed up. So many died from friendly-fire in Iraq and no one tried to cover up. Why now?
Don McElfreshCould the torpedo have come from a submarine wreck sunk during the Korean War (1951) about 20 miles southwest of the sinking site for the ROKS Cheonan?
Xavier Souto"The impossibility of all this is that whomever responsible could be murdered if they tried to cover up a friendly-fire incident in the way described.

Caveat: Under the current South Korean regime, South Korean citizens can be sued for defamation by their own government officials, and defamation in South Korea is a crime (as well as a civil offense) prosecuted by the government's own centrally-controlled national prosecutors who selectively choose or choose not whom to prosecute. For example, recently, S.C. Shin, "a civil[ian] investigator [appointed]recommended by [the South] Korean National Assembly for [the investigation of] the sinking of Cheonan" got (criminally) sued for defamation by a government official for expressing disagreement over the current South Korean regime's version of the Cheonan Incident. Those huge number of South Korean netizens' writings are practically all in Korean, incomprehensible to most English readers in the world; so, I collected the following list of documents written in English for your sake.

(물론, 영향력상 최대 신문지는 하나 더 있죠 - 뉴욕 타임스지는 아직 조용) 워싱턴 포스트지는 워터게이트 사건(Watergate scandal)을 보도해서 압도적으로 당선된 닉슨 대통령을 임기도 못 채우고 쫓아낸바있는 바로 그 신문사 입니다. 이제는 혹시 사기꾼나라로 국제적 망신을 당하기 보다는 국민-수준높은 나라로 국제적 대 칭송을 받읍시다 - 인터넷 초강국인 대한민국의 네티즌들이 인터넷 상에서 멋진 민주적 활약을 벌이므로서, 선진국이라는 나라의 미국국민, 미국국회, 미국언론들이 병신같이 자기나라 대통령(부시)에게 사기당해 전쟁을 일으킨 것 보다는 오히려 '대한민국쪽 국민-수준이 더 높았다'라고. 워싱턴 포스트지의 제프 스타인 Jeff Stein 기자 자신이 쓴 기사 글의 제목은 "Analysts question Korea torpedo incident" 입니다. (제목은 보통 글을 요약하니까 아마 제목이 중요할 수도 있겠죠?)

(그래서 영향력을 발휘합니다.) 여러분, 도움이 됩니다 - 가서 좀 영어로 댓글을 올려주세요. 워싱턴 포스트지의 제프 스타인 Jeff Stein 기자(이메일 주소 email@example.com)에게 정보를 보내 주십시오. 또, 워싱턴 포스트지의 아래의 링크에 가시면, 간단한 등록후(sign in을 클릭), 댓글도 올리실 수 있습니다(영어로). http://blog.washingtonpost.com/spy-talk/2010/05/asian_analysts_question_korea_torpedo_incident.html 영어로된-[천안함 사건]에 대해 의혹을 제시하는-기사가 이제 21개를 넘어서기 시작했습니다. 외국인들에게 보여주고 도대체 그들은 어떻게 생각하는지 한번 물어봅시다. 서로 정보를 공유하는 세계여론을, 열린 인터넷에서 한번 만들어 봅시다.

dogbertHello all, First of all, look at the propeller blades: http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/fotostrecke-55107-2.html As the former JIG-member Mr. S,C. Shin mentioned, a grounding is very likely. There is no other explanation for the badly damaged propeller blades for me. And the surface of the blades is very clean in the outer areas. This indicates it went through the ground for a long time. What nobody mentioned so far: What happened to the acoustic signature, when the blades were so heavily damaged? When the Cheonan finally got free, from that time it could have been identified as an "intruding enemy ship" (and perhaps taking revenge for the sinking of a north korean navy vessel 4 month before). Friendly fire is very likely for me. It was dark and perhaps some parts of the crew went already aboard when grounded, while others were busy controlling the propulsion system. Now have a look on the inventary of the South Korean Navy, especialy the submarines! It operates 3 german type 214 submarines (Son Won-il, Jung Ji, An Jung-geun), made by Hyundai Heavy Industries and equipped with the state-of-the-art propulsion system, nearly invisible due to the SPHINX-D Radar System, and equipped with the most modern german torpedo system DM2-A4 (very quite). The "german torpedo" theorie was skipped, when the torpedo parts were found on May 15th, indicating to a north korean torpedo. Wihout these parts, the South Korean Navy would have been in big trouble! So please take into account the possibility of "Friendly Fire" by the own Navy (and faking evidence to cover it). Please verify the position of the South Korean submarines at the time of the incident. (The JIG obviously did not.)
