Sub attack was near US-SKorea drill

If you had any doubt this might not have been a false flag black op, those doubts by now should be eliminated. It seems like no matter what happens, there is always some anti-terror drill, or some military op, that just happens to be in the vicinity of the attack, at the same time. They're either extremely lucky or extremely unlucky. Or they're complicit.

They're complicit. Of course, they're claiming this exercise is what instigated this rash act by the North Koreans. But common sense tells us that a minor naval power such as North Korea would not want to engage the most powerful navy in the history of the world, unprovoked.

    On the night a torpedo-armed North Korean submarine allegedly sank a South Korean patrol ship, the U.S. and South Korea were engaged in joint anti-submarine warfare exercises just 75 miles away, military officials told The Associated Press.

    The sinking of the Cheonan was the worst South Korean military disaster since the 1950-53 Korean War. It showed that even impoverished nations such as North Korea can inflict heavy casualties on far better equipped and trained forces, including those backed by U.S. military might.

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates said plans for more joint U.S.-South Korea anti-submarine exercises, announced after Cheonan went down, are on hold awaiting U.N. action on the incident.

    That's in part, Gates said Friday while in Asia, because of concerns about instigating another rash act by the North Koreans.
