Yes...satelites see all!

Even underwater, at night and through the clouds, back on page 5 of this thread, the weather was looked up over there at the time, overcast...same page Elf was naming off the norths submarines. From link on this page ( ) the count I got was 35 subs that were included in the 60 percent of the North Korean naval force that is deployed close to the front line area.

Going along with the sarcasm...nothing to see here...we'll tell you what to see when we want you to see it.

Edit Removed request for sources,

You are right but this happened nearly half a day away, that is the report, but the actual event happened nearly a week ago.

The United Arab Emirates navy is thought to have opened fire on a small patrol vessel from Saudi Arabia after a dispute over water boundaries.

According to one report, two Saudi sailors were injured in the alleged bombardment.

The Saudi vessel was forced to surrender, and its sailors were delivered into custody in Abu Dhabi for several days, before being released and handed over to the Saudi embassy earlier this week.

The incident has shocked diplomats who hope the countries, both key American allies, will help implement the West's strategy to constrain Iran's nuclear and military ambitions.

The clash happened in disputed waters between the coasts of Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and the peninsula on which the gas-rich state of Qatar sits.

The seabed is rich with oil deposits, while the Dolphin pipeline project to carry natural gas direct from Qatar to Abu Dhabi has provoked irritation in the Saudi authorities. Nevertheless, direct conflict between the two countries' armed forces is highly unusual.

Why was this not reported widely?

Again with the Korean incident, on the BBC news at six in the UK at 6.16 a one minute very brief summary, playing down all issues was made.

I am very suprised the above incident got no TV coverage.

Someone is keeping the lid on these reports, or playing them down.

"It looks as though attempts were made to keep this quiet, which is predictable given the important relationship between the two countries and the strategic relationship with Iran," a Gulf-based diplomat told the British publication. "But it does remind us of the simmering rows that there are in this part of the Gulf."
EDIT to add report as above UPI My above thoughts confirmed

The two most dangerous waterways in the world, have had armed conflict over the last 12 hours and hardly anything on the TV covering these important events in detail.

Kind Regards,

Perhaps they were only playing:

Gosh, am I fast or what?

posted on Mar, 26 2010 @ 02:19 PM
I'm confused. First they jumped to the conclusion that it might have been N. Korea....then they were firing at an unidentified craft...and now they say it was a flock of birds....

I smell B.S. somewhere...did I step in something?

Well I will tell you one thing if they "TPTB" are looking for a war this is it. Think about it if the plan is war to bring the economy back they are going to use this and if they dont well that should shut alot of people up about it including me.

This is going to go one way or the other and only time will tell but I would prepare for the worst in your mind and hope for the best.

What a joke. The U.S. has got to be the most cowardly nation in the history of the human race I kid you not.

I would say that the US has shown restraint because it's not our capital that would be turn into a "sea of fire."

In my opinion, starting a war and letting the South Koreans take the hit would be cowardly. Whatever, everybody is entitled to their own opinion. I'm just not into starting fights and letting my friends take the blows for me.

And how many US troops are in South Korea? To say that the US has no horse in this race only shows that more research needs to be done on your part.

Do we know North Korea was involved for sure?

All we know is that a South Korean ship has sunk possibly due to an explosion.

This is certainly a distressing story. I think there have been conflicts between NK and SK ships in the past but I don't know if any have been sunk before.

Exactly this is just entrapment.

Why do you guys always just jump with the wests view?

Since when was S. Korea the west? They seem to be the ones who are reporting this. As for an all out war between the north and south, it has been brewing for the last 50 years.

It's truely terrible if it was an attack that leads to war. Still I don't think anyone is jumping on the "wests" conclusions.

I just read everything that came up in a search. Some sources are running with the story as if it is a fact that N. Korea was the cause but others are not. One quoted S. Korea as saying it could have struck a rock or explosives on the ship that is sinking exploded. Sounds like nobody knows yet and some sources are jumping the gun with speculation. It appears to be nothing but guesses right now.

"Do we know North Korea was involved for sure?"

"know" or WISH?

Pssst! If the conditions are right you can see a submarine from a satellite. Some satellites have thermal and surface radar capability. If you have a thermal hit but, no radar hit it is a good indicator of a submerged submarine. This works best in cold shallow water, like the Yellow Sea.

Timeline: North Korea – key events since the end of the Korean war

27 July 1953

The war ends when North and South Korea sign a truce – but there is no formal peace treaty, meaning the two countries remain technically at war. The Korean war cost two million lives.

29 November 1987

North Korea blows up a South Korean civilian airliner, killing 115 people. The US decides to include the North on its list of countries that support terrorism.

15 June 1999

More than 80 North Korean sailors die in the first Yellow Sea clash since the end of the war.

January 2002

The then US president, George Bush, makes his "axis of evil" speech, which links North Korea with Iran and Iraq.

July 2006

North Korea test-fires medium and long-range missiles.

9 October 2006

An international outcry follows North Korea's first nuclear test, and the UN sets up a series of sanctions.

March-May 2008

North Korea test-fires short-range missiles.

July 2008

A soldier shoots a South Korean tourist dead in the Mount Kumgang special tourism area of North Korea


Lots of happenings over the years. Wonder what it will take for this pot to boil over?

Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou activated the country's national security mechanism on Friday after a South Korean naval ship sank in the Yellow Sea, the island's Central News Agency reported.

Ma, who was on a tour of South Pacific islands, consulted with top officials and ordered the country's minister of national defence to monitor developments and "adopt necessary response measures," the official agency said.

OK, its now reported as a mishap on-board the ship. A weapons system malfunction of some kind. The wild speculation was wrong.

This shows how important it is to wait until the real story surfaces from the source.

There was a lot of arguing and then they all left in a hurry with him following the police and gov't vehicle( a grey van with gov't plates). Anybody else know of Navy personnel possibly being called to duty in the middle of the night last night?

That is entirely feasable, and likely.

On the satellite comes the news a American Built Warship, Flagged with its ally has maybe been hit by a torpedo, then is sinking.

I should imagine with the incidents in the Gulf etc, as well a large part of the US submarine force in base was called out to sea pretty quickly.

He is probably on his way there now, but then again so will the British, Russian, Israeli, Chinese and Japenese nations, all were doing exactly the same at the same time last night.

The waters around there, and by default the Gulf might be pretty crowded soon, and any "accident" or "flock of birds" between them, or indefense of allies is very worrying.

Kind Regards,
