Maybe somebody posted it and I didn't notice, but here is the link to the original Debka-Net-Weekly article.

It has information about a lot of the questions put forward in this thread that the OP article link did not include.

Looks like JFK should have followed the NWOs orders (Hitlers?)
and sunk the Russian missiles to Cuba ships instead of turning them
around and getting killed.

JFKs greatest accomplishment. Avoiding more blood shed.

Not good NWO policy.

Tuning the ships back to North Korea would haven been interesting.

Like what would NK do now with all the radio active junk back in the harbor.

They are getting ready for war.

Does North Korea have anything worthwhile for IRAN.

IRAN would be suckers to buy anything, look at all the engineers that
go along with any project. Are NK engineers ready to work in IRAN.

Don't think so. Go to the next bomb zone now that NK is giving up.

Anyways, i was checking some military forums and very few members seem to be giving any credence to this story. Most think it is not true. I will try to do some more research and see what else i find.

Not so sure. From what I here of North Korea, Iran might be a nice vacation spot!

Apparently there was an MSNBC article on this which is not to be found anymore.

This is the link to the article was was taken off.

What i find strange is that MSNBC did not make any comments on the reason why they took the article off their page.

The following is part of the article which MSNBC had which was taken off their website. i found it searching in other forums, and as per ATS policy i can't give a link to that forum, but i will excerpt the article.

S.Korean-flagged ship sinks off Iran, 13 missing

Reuters Updated: 11:22 a.m. PT July 14, 2007

TEHRAN - A South Korean-flagged cargo ship with 23 people on board has sunk off the coast of Iran and 13 people are missing, Iranian officials said.

Masih Momeni, an official with Iran's ports and shipping organisation, was quoted by state radio as saying the ship carrying iron from China sank in the Sea of Oman, 110 nautical miles southeast of Iran's port of Chahbahar.

Another official at the shipping organisation, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters the ship sank on Thursday. He said the 10 saved were four South Koreans, four Filipinos and two Chileans.

Momeni had said the 10 were picked up by passing vessels. It was not immediately clear if the remaining 13 missing were all crew.

Looking back a few pages i see that Sri Oracle was reporting this also. To me this story is a bit strange, something did happened but as to what really happened we might never know.

Wow, Muaddib and I actually agree on something.

Thats what I'm saying. Something been screwed around with here. Unfortunately at the moment we have no way of knowing what that was.

I say we keep poking. Lets do our duty as members of free nations to reveal the truth. If there's one thing that really irks me the wrong way, it's a cover up!

Maybe disinfo spread to make americans more scared of Iran?
"Oh crap they are buying materials and tech from NK, soon they have hundreds of WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!"

I dont know but I would imagine it take alot to sway the US citizens to accept another war, ie. attacking Iran? But you know they have loads of oil

Also, if the gov. makes the story seem shady, it can actually make it more believable?

Just so you know, americans are not interested in the war we have let alone starting another. Speaking for myself, I'm afraid of iran as much as mickey mouse or donald duck.

OK, I'm confused. This thread started with 2 N. Korean ships sinking and has now mutated to 1 S. korean ship sinking. So what are we trying to get at now?

I'm still reading along... I'd like to add this to the conversation:

"many uranium minerals[]are soluble and can translocate or move in water to areas far away from where uranium sites are found.

Professor Frost said using a technique known as near infrared spectroscopy, radioactive minerals could be detected by scientists located far away from a contaminated site.

"Near infrared spectroscopy can identify the types of uranium minerals that are present.

"This means we can now identify whether or not radioactive deposits exist and the risk these deposits might present to both the environment and the community."

Somebody knows if there is radiation in that water.

Where again did the S korean boat sink?

Still leaning blair witch on this... but I think Debka Report owes an apology, correction, and explaination if that is the case.

I am,

Sri Oracle

This is being discussed here:

We welcome a follow up report or further explaination.

We'll see what they have to say.

There does seem to be a great deal of confusing sources here,no?I would REALLY like to here the survivors accounts and for goodness sake what flag they were flying under,lol!

Quote Sir O

Where did the South Korean ship sink?

The Korea Times says that the South Korean ship "Orchid Sun" sunk 150 kilometers east of Oman on July 12th

The Korea Times other article says that the South Korean ship Orchid Sun sank in waters 94 miles east of Oskat on July 12th.

U.S. Navy Central Command says the South Korean ship Orchid Sun on July 12th, but only locates it in the Gulf of Oman.

The Debka report says that On July 12, A North Korean freighter was sunk in the Arabian Sea 100 miles southeast of the Iranian naval base-port of Chah Bahar.

Confusing ain't it?

To break it down;
The Debka reported North Korean ship, and the reports of a South Korean ship seem to have sunk at about the same place on the same day.

The other ship Debka says sank on June 25th, and quotes directly from the U.S. Navy Centcom site says it was North Korean, but does not give a name for the ship, nor a specific location, and although Debka says it sank, the Centcom article does not specify if it did or not.

As far as I am aware only the names of the missing were listed, so contacting the survivors may be difficult.

Another route that someone may want to take is look for people who work on the responding rescue ships. Those ships names are listed in the Centcom reports. Maybe one of them is a blogger or something, and you could send an email asking for more info about the rescue.

On a different note, is it interesting that one of the U.S. ships involved basically went straight back to the shipyard at Norfolk Va. for "repairs" to be performed by BAE Systems? BAE announced that it landed the contract 5 days after the incident. Dunno if it means anything.

The first map shows the bathymetry of the gulf of oman.... I am thinking that the Orchid Sun is in 2000m waters... really deep. Very different from the Persian Gulf... whre
