Of course, let's not forget, that they are only assuming the North was involved, by way of a torpedo or possibly a leftover mine. Most officials initially thought there was an internal misfiring of some sort that caused the ship to sink. Now, however, a chief investigator apparently thinks an external explosion is more likely.
His nose was crying, too.
North Korean officials commented Saturday to deny any involvement (duh).
Lee apparently cried while reading the list of sailors who died.
'"The country that you loved will never forget any of you," he said.'
Did they really love Korea? Who knows? But I'll bet they hate it now. After all, Koreans don't join the military here because they "love" their country. They are forced to do roughly two years of service. Doesn't sound like love to me.
I do like the North Koreans' official response:
'Pyongyang's official state media quoted a military commentator as criticizing Seoul for linking North Korea to the blast. The commentator accused Seoul of seeking to shore up sanctions against the North and to muster conservative votes for upcoming mayoral and gubernatorial elections.
"It is a trite trick of the stupid to hatch plots and stoop to any infamy under that pretext whenever they are driven into a tight corner," the report from thesaid.'
