The new technical assessment concludes the deadly explosion was caused by a US manufactured rising sea mine during the military drill.
May 29, 2010 (Hamsayeh.Net) – Overwhelming evidence now implicate the United States for the sinking of a South Korean military vessel on March 26 in the Yellow Sea.
An independent investigation conducted by Chinese and international team has revealed that a US rising sea mine caused the deadly blast and not a North Korean fired torpedo.
It was during the Sino-U.S. strategic talks last week in China when the Chinese side rejected South Korean and American claim of a North Korean torpedo as the cause of blast on the ship named Cheonan taking part in a joint military exercise. Following the incident South Korean government of Lee Myung-bak and US censored all other independent reports whereby telling only their own version of events.
The new technical assessment concludes the deadly explosion was caused by a US manufactured rising sea mine during the military drill. The report said it should have been impossible for a North Korean submarine to be present in the area without being detected by either US or South Korean forces.
It also said on March 26 a US mine-laying ship called Salvo was strangely present in the area. The Salvo was included in exercises and its mission was to lay sea mines secretly, the report revealed. According to evidence the blast ripped the ship into two neat pieces a sign that indicates an explosion by a sea mine-like device.
A torpedo explosion involves puncturing a target’s outer shield creating a sudden fire and smoke similar to what we see in movies. Moreover, the supposed propeller belonging to a North Korean torpedo presented as evidence by South Korean investigation team showed no sign of damage.
The truth is when a torpedo traveling at 40-50 knots per hour hits a target all its parts including drive shaft system and propeller would be shattered or bent by the high-powered blast.
Analysts say South Korean and US engagements in a media cover up of this friendly fire incident would constitute fraud, perjury and possibly treason.
