South Korea's Ship Sinking: Another False Flag? - by Stephen Lendman

This writer's May 5 article included a history of noted previous ones, accessible through the following link:

Important ones caused the Spanish-American War, WW II, the Vietnam War, and Iraq and Afghanistan wars post-9/11 (a glaring false flag).

Besides constant Middle East tension, more now looms after North Korea was blamed for the March sinking of South Korea's Cheonan warship near the western border with the North.

At the time, New York Times writer Choe Sang-Hun headlined (March 26), "S. Korean Navy Ship Sinks in Disputed Waters," saying:

"A South Korean Navy patrol ship sank....after suffering damage to its hull....raising suspicions about the possible involvement of North Korea, whose navy has skirmished with South Korean ships in the waters off the Korean Peninsula."

Then on May 19, Sang-Hun headlined, "South Korea Publicly Blames the North for Ship's Sinking," saying:

"South Korea formally accused North Korea....of responsibility for the sinking....killing 46 sailors in one of the deadliest provocations" since the July 1953 Korean War armistice, leaving a "state of war" in place to this day. Also, longstanding economic sanctions in violation of the armistice and UN Charter's Article 39, permitting them only to restore international peace and security during war or when they're verifiably threatened.

Washington bogusly imposed them, saying:

-- "North Korea is seen as posing a threat to US national security," although for years Pyongyang sought normalization and was rebuffed;

-- "North Korea is designated by the Secretary of State as a state sponsor or supporter of international terrorism," despite no evidence to prove it;

-- "North Korea is a Marxist-Leninist state, with a Communist government," though nothing in international law prohibits it; and

-- "North Korea has been found by the State Department to have engaged in proliferation of weapons of mass destruction," - true or false, America not only proliferates, it threatens their use preemptively against any nation perceived as a threat, even non-nuclear ones.

South Korea Blames Pyongyang for the Cheonan Sinking

Claiming a North Korean attack, Seoul said there's "no other plausible explanation....The evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that (a) torpedo was fired by a North Korean submarine," even though none was detected in the area.
