#1 Did the Norks use kamikaze torpedoes?

Where did the equipment to do this come from? Seems to me they don't even have the equipment to grow food, let alone subs or torpedoes.

#2 Why would they not be able to build torpedoes just because they're starving some of their people to death? They've been starving their people for the last twenty years, and it hasn't stopped their party and government from building what it wants.

(I remember having arguments with people _years_ ago, about how they weren't gonna be able to build a bomb for the same reason).

#3 The Chinese don't need anything explained to them. They need to feel the impact of action. Until we are prepared to act, we should not expect China to change.

#6 Some day (perhaps) historians will look back at how the relatively prosperous West and democratically free asians let communism make life miserable for people in NKOR, Cuba and other little museums of the defunct horror, and they'll ask "Why?"

#8 WMF > SOUTH KOREA SUSPECTS NORTH KOREA USED A POWERFUL CHINESE-MADE "YU-3G" PASSIVE SOUND-DIRECTED/HOMING TORPEDO TO SINK THE CHEONAN.

* SAME > ZHAOSHI ZHANG: ACTION OF CHINA'S OKINAWA/MIYAKO NAVAL FLEET WAS INTENDED AS A SUBTLE BUT DIRECT WARNING TO US, JAPAN, SOUTH KOREA AND TAIWAN. CHINA'S WILLINGNESS TO USE OVERT MILITARY FORCE REGARDLESS OF CASUALTIES TO FORCIBLY RECOVER THE DAOYU ISLANDS, TAIWAN, AND OKINAWA TO BREAK THE FIRST ISLAND CHAIN BARRIER. VULNERABILITY OF TAIWAN'S EASTERN DEFENSES AGZ CHINA.

#9 BHARAT RAKSHAK/TOPIX > NORTH KOREA READIES THIRD NUCLEAR TEST.

SOUTH KOREA, etc. per se may not want war, BUT DOES NORTH KOREA? The DPRK's new agreement wid BEIJING = CHINA to set up various SEZ = FREEPORTS throughout NOKOR is likely to further entrench Chin influence-domin of the DPRK, NOT reduce it.

Again, this above latter is contrary to the promise of NOKOR Commies [Kim Il-Sung] to bring out absolute NOKOR + PAN-KOREAN FREEDOMS, SOVEREIGNTY + INDEPENDENCE FROM ANYONE INCLUD BOTH CHINA + SO-CALLED "WHITE DEVILS".

"RISING CHINA" > may result in a RE-ARMED/MIL JAPAN, espec a NUCLEAR JAPAN, NOT A "WEAK JAPAN".

IOW, "KOREA FOR KOREANS" = in reality is SOUTH KOREA ONLY, as the last SOLE SOVEREIGN remnant of the ancient KORYE/CORYE/COREA KINGDOMS???
