South Korea Opens fire on Civilian Plane Thought to be North's Troops.????




The South Korean military fired at a civilian plane near the Yellow Sea border with North Korea, mistaking it for one of the North's military planes, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Saturday, citing a military source.

The Asiana Airlines plane was not damaged because it was about 500 meters (547 yards) out of the range of the K-2 rifles used by two soldiers, Yonhap said, citing the unidentified military source.

According to the Yonhap report, the plane was carrying about 119 crew and passengers from China and was making its descent to Incheon International Airport.

IMHO...a couple of ROK troops need to be given the kind of discipline the ROK military is so infamous for. This is unforgivable as an isolated action by a couple soldiers manning guns. The CNN story says nothing that would cause me to believe this was ordered by commanders, let alone South Korean Military. The situation over there is on a hair trigger right now because the DPRK has a leader who is clinically insane. This does nothing to help matters. Yikes!

Just imagine what would happen if this plane had actually received any damage and the 119 crew and passengers from China were injured or killed.. I'm sure china wouldn't have been happy with S. Korea. Quite the crisis avoided

Test this possibility for a second:

South Korean false flag. The reason why automatic weapons were used because it would be hard to prove who was behind it, then South Korea's master, the US would immediately blame N-Korea which is building an economic zone with China at the moment.

A bullet being used to bring down a passenger Jet would make it almost impossible to confirm who was behind the attack, unlike a Torpedo which sank the South Korean ship. N-Korea still denies any having anything to do with the sinking, and they have made their point loud and clear, and brought counter evidence supporting their innocent.

In case of a bullet, ohhh, that would be a hard one.

Just imagine what the response would be if the South Korean bullet brought down this Passenger Jet, then you'll understand.

It would also be almost (if not completely) impossible to shoot down a large aeroplane with a bullet.

The only reason for CNN to make this news worthy ,, would be too let Kim Il Jong know,, of course he would be one of the few who gets his info from them,,,.

If they wanted too "down" the airplane,,, well i'm sure their are other more ,reliable, means.

Pure phy ops directed at north korea.

The soldiers who were shooting would disagree.

A guy on Guam got mad at the noise from all the planes flying over his house and shot a B-52 down with a rifle. Knocked out the hydraulics and the plane crash landed without landing gear at the air base there.

He went to Federal Prison. Ending up becoming a Mayor.

The locals were mad at all the helicopters flying around making noise and they were shooting at them too. Which is why the US Navy moved them up North away from everyone's houses.

And the Pentagon wants to move the 3rd Marines there from Okinawa....Marines would be returning fire on peoples houses.
