Has this one been posted yet? I had a quick look, I've been out of the loop for a few days with computer issues.


"It is the military intelligence's assessment that the North attacked with a heavy torpedo," a military source was quoted as saying by the news agency Yonhap.

"The military intelligence has made the report to the Blue House - the presidential residence - and to the defence ministry immediately after the sinking of the Cheonan that it is clearly the work of North Korea's military," the source added.
South Korea now plans to raise the front half of the 1,200-ton Cheonan, which went down near a disputed sea border with North Korea.


Well that's an interesting development - no humming or harring this time, no accidental explosion or accidentally hitting a mine - a suicide attack, that would be a clear elevation of the situation, are South Korea going to just take that? It's a huge deal to strike the North, it would be all or nothing.
