Fidel Castro claims US sank South Korean warship


www.channelnewsasia.com

HAVANA: US navy commandos sank a South Korean warship in March in order to blame North Korea, raise tensions and convince Japan to keep US forces in Okinawa, Cuban former president Fidel Castro wrote in an editorial on Friday.

Castro, who based his information on press reports, blasted Washington's "cynicism" and "lack of scruples" in the incident.

I am glad someone has the guts to say out loud what many are thinking. Russia and China prefer to remain silent and not condemn anyone since there is no reliable evidence yet on who did this. But to me it is pretty obvious that the only ones who have gained anything from this are the Obama administration.

Russian Expert Doubts about "Results of Investigation" Pyongyang, June 2 (KCNA) — Konstantin Asmolov, senior researcher at the Center for Korean Studies of the Far Eastern Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, expressed strong doubts about the south Korean authorities' assertion concerning the case of the warship sinking, when interviewed by a reporter of Moskovskii Komsomolets, according to NTV of Russia on May 31.

He said: The "conclusion" made by the south Korean side is arousing very strong distrust among people in south Korea and other parts of the world. Both Russia and China do not believe this "conclusion" at all. There are a lot of doubts about the "conclusion" as "evidence" and facts do not match the circumstances fabricated by the south Korean side.

For example, why did the case claim the lives of seamen only, without taking the life of a single officer?
Why wasn't there anyone who had his eardrum split or fractured among the victims? This is the general phenomenon which can be observed when a warship is hit by a torpedo.
What is marked on the propelling body of the torpedo was written with a felt-tip pen in the writing style common in the south, not in the "north Korean writing style." Why?


I just found this, I didn't know there were so many discrepancies.

Fidel Castro said it so it must be true


Fidel is about as credible as little Kim over there in North Korea. The South Koreans are long time friends and allies. The US would not sink one of their ships. It makes no sense at all.

Actually, China didn't remain silent. They specifically said that they did not believe that North Korea sank the ship.

What I do find interesting, is that this claim is based on "Press Reports" which really don't amount to much but a collective presentation of whatever propaganda is currently being circulated.

Does Cuba's story make sense? Would this sinking help convince Japan to keep the base?

Yes, it does make sense. But, unfortunately, that doesn't prove the US did it. One could make an argument that China would also benefit from the sinking, but that doesn't mean they fired the torpedo either.

What I will say, and what I have said from the beginning, is that it makes no sense to me that North Korea is claiming to have not bombed the ship. I would think, based on their actions in the past, that they would be shouting from the rooftops that they successfully 'attacked' the South.

That doesn't add up for me.

But this article is really just speculation based on what could the US benefit from this. Again, I could create a list of other countries that could benefit too. Doesn't mean any of them sank the ship.

Yes, I am familiar with false flag attacks. This was not one of them. The US has nothing to gain by getting involved with another armed conflict with North Korea. Our military is already stretched to the limit. The idea that America would do this just to keep a military base in Japan is laughable.

Fidel Castro is older than dirt.

The man is halfway in his grave he is most likely suffering from dementia, I wouldn't listen to him about anything regarding reality. He's not even aware of when he urinates himself half the time.

Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama has announced his resignation after just eight months in office.

It comes after he broke an election pledge to move an unpopular US military base away from the island of Okinawa.


BBC News

Maybe there is some smoke to this story.


"The President is committed to maintaining excellent cooperation with the new Japanese government and will work closely together with Prime Minister Kan on bilateral, regional and global issues."

I would like to confirmation of that statement. I've been following this story and last I heard, china was preaching calm.

I will go further, they didnt say they did not believe NK sank the ship.

Prove me wrong.

Here is what Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said;




Speaking at the talks, Mr Wen said avoiding conflict between the Koreas was "most urgent", but did not apportion blame for the sinking. China fears N Korea "The urgent task for the moment is to properly handle the serious impact caused by the Cheonan incident, gradually defuse tensions over it and avoid possible conflicts," he said. "China will continue to work with every country through aggressive negotiations and co-operation to fulfil our mission of maintaining peace and stability in the region."


Not apportioning blame is not the same as they did not believe that North Korea sank the ship.

i think ur not familiar with false flag attacks

the reason there are us bases in japan is for the military take over of north korea, china and russia.

Japan is acting as an re supply,naval sector for the attack.

My two cents:

The USA gains nothing by sinking South Koreas' ships.

Nothing.

Wow! imagine if it was true

''Right now we are sitting on history-making stuff,'' say Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks.

just imagine if they had proof of this.. what would be the repercussions?

How about a nice new American Army base on the border of China when North Korea is toppled. Yup nothing to gain


Welcome to the chess game!

What did the Vietnam war really gain America? Yet they fought that war also. Gulf of Tonkin anybody!!

Nothing.


The USA gains a possibility of war against the NK, and the possibility of using this against china and russia.


just my own two cents.
