I just heard this heard this on CNN, but they said the US ships would direct them to the nearest port and have that country perform any inspections. At any rate that clearly falls into little Kim's acts of war category. I'll be watching this story unfold for sure.

Thought I would point out you posted this in the wrong section. You might want to ask a mod to move it.

Here is another reference link:


The U.S. military is tracking a flagged North Korean ship suspected of proliferating weapons material in violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution passed last Friday, FOX News has learned.

The ship, Kang Nam, left a port in North Korea Wednesday and appears to be heading toward Singapore, according to a senior U.S. military source. The vessel, which the military has been tracking since its departure, could be carrying weaponry, missile parts or nuclear materials.

It was only a small matter of time before we had to deal with this.

Remember, China agreed to sanctions, but was very clear:
"No force allowed in stopping, inspecting ships"

This was said in ChinaDaily.

US navy prepares to intercept North Korean ship

The Guardian article stated that the Navy intends to inforce the full intent of the UN sanctions.
However, our "soft on terrorist" president probably will do nothing.




Tension was growing in the Pacific today as the US navy prepared to intercept a North Korean cargo ship suspected of carrying weapons in defiance of a United Nations ban.

The US navy has been tracking the Kang Nam since its left a North Korean port on Wednesday.

It would be the first ship to be intercepted since the UN last week imposed sanctions on North Korea as punishment for conducting an underground nuclear test last month. The sanctions ban the import and export of nuclear material, missiles and all other weapons other than small arms.

100% Propaganda bull#.

Do you honestly think the military openly discusses ongoing surveillance operations in foreign theaters?

C'mon people! Look at this for what it really is!

U.S. Fortifies Hawaii to Meet Threat From Korea


WASHINGTON -- The U.S. is moving ground-to-air missile defenses to Hawaii as tensions escalate between Washington and Pyongyang over North Korea's recent moves to restart its nuclear-weapon program and resume test-firing long-range missiles.

View Full Image

Associated Press

In anticipation of a North Korean missile test, the U.S. is positioning off Hawaii a floating radar, like this one shown in a 2005 Boeing photo.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday that the U.S. is concerned that Pyongyang might soon fire a missile toward Hawaii. Some senior U.S. officials expect a North Korean test by midsummer, even though most don't believe the missile would be capable of crossing the Pacific and reaching Hawaii.

The North Koreans loaded that ship with spent fuel rods to send our radiation detectors into overdrive. They took off from their coast with full knowledge of the surveillance. They are luring us way off the path of the real threat.


Thursday, August 05, 2004 North Korean Submarines: Yesterday, John Gorenfield linked to an article concerning a Jane's intelligenec summary that claims that North Korea received twelve diesel powered former Soviet submarines of the F and G classes via Rev. Moon and the Unification Church. Furthermore, Janes is claiming that this technology transfer may allow the North Koreans to deploy sea launched ballistic missiles that could threaten the West Coast. This has created a mini stir in the blogosphere.

Very interesting thread here if you care to check it out. No derailing here just informing.

The submarine that made its way through our underwater detection network by following close behind the wash of a legitamite freighter entering our coastal waters. Fact, fiction?

It may be the truth.

The reason for letting it out is what may come of it and the need for public support.

In both the US and whatever other countries become involved in this as it develops.

Agreed and that is a very good point.

They gotta make NK look just awful to get any support for what more than likely will happen.
