Breaking...

A South Korean Warship is sinking in the Yellow Sea, after it was thought to be torpedoed by a North Korea ship. Heavy casualties are feared...

The ship is thought to be a coastal Defense ship (Light frigate).

Details still coming...

OH BOY, this could be the start of something very serious, This could be North Korea finally going over the line. There is no way South Korea is going to tolerate such an attack on its armed forces, I'd be shocked if the South Korea DOESN'T retailiate. I am strangely reminded of the USS Reuben James.

Personally If I were the Korean PM, Bombers would be lifting off the runway on their way North.

CNN page says "
The 1,500-ton ship sank between 9 and 10 p.m. near the island, but the cause of the accident was not immediately known, officials said.
A rescue operation was under way. There were no immediate reports of casualties, but some sort of explosion occurred in the rear of the ship, officials told Yonhap."

Nothing about a North Korean torpedo?

MSNBC says that it is investigating if the culprit was the North koreans, because the SKs fired at a NK ship for crossing a disputed border.

I guess it's too early to tell.
And I'm on the other side of the world.
F*ck.

Then its about the correct interdiction and who fiered first and alot of other stuff.
My guess is they will sort this out thoroughly before any action is taken.

There is also a report of a 2nd SK ship that fired on a unidentified ship shortly after the first ship was hit.

The initial news is always blurry like this.
But if anyone's asking, will there be a war because of this incident, the answer is no. Hopefully some of the ROEs will be loosened further.

And what does ROE stand for? My knowledge of acronyms is drawing a blank here.
