(Reuters) - South Korea on Saturday raised the front half of a warship that exploded and sank a month ago near a contested sea border with North Korea, finding clues that support growing suspicions Pyongyang attacked the vessel.
The 1,200-tonne corvette Cheonan sank in what military officials said was likely a torpedo attack. Forty-six South Korean sailors were killed in what could be one of the deadliest strikes by Pyongyang on its rival since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. The North has denied involvement.
(Reuters) - South Korea's military believes a torpedo fired from a North Korean submarine sank its navy ship last month, based on intelligence gathered jointly with the United States, a news report said on Thursday.
"North Korean submarines are all armed with heavy torpedoes with 200 kg (441 lb) warheads," the military source was quoted as saying by Yonhap. "It is the military intelligence's assessment that the North attacked with a heavy torpedo.

Honestly, our world leaders have lost their minds. If NK did torpedo this boat we need to shut the heck up. Locate "Kim is ill" and just nuke the city he is in without a single word. It is time to stop this silly political posturing when lives are taken on a whim by rouge leaders.
Shut our mouths and just use the weapons we have to stop future events.
If you know your actions will result in your death and end to your agenda every single time you do something stupid, you wont have anyone doing stuff like this anymore. Talk is cheap.
Just kill Kim and take out that Iranian Religious leader and president too. End of story. Nop need for prolonged wars. Just kill the ones causing the problems.
