Even capitalist South Korea's major newspapers have carried the friendly-fire (U.S.) suppositions of the sinking its warship by both a Russian Navy investigation and Japanese investigative reporters. E.g.:
The Korea Times, 6/9/10,
"A team of four submarine and torpedo experts from the Russian Navy returned to Moscow on Monday after making an independent assessment of the March 26 sinking of the South Korean corvette, The Hindu reported Tuesday, quoting Russian military sources.
The paper said the experts had not found "convincing evidence of North Korea's involvement. "
Dr. Konstantin Asmolov of the Korea Center at the Institute of the Far East suggested that the ship had been probably hit by friendly fire. "I think it was a tragic accident during war games that cynical politicians are trying to exploit to maximum advantage,"
But New York Times articles and Associated Press releases about North Korea lambasting the UN Security Council threats make no reference any contradictory information to the America charge of a DRK torpedo.
It is difficult to even find having been reported in U.S. media the simple and diplomatic Chinese answer to the U.S. asking for help in punishing North Korea on the basis of a U.S. "international investigation' finding. "Not creditable."

(article's concluding paragraph)
The self-righteous scowling countenance of Mrs. Clinton reminded us of a serious Colin Powell pointing to photos of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction trucks, of Adelai Stevenson's photo evidence that planes that bombed Cuba were not U.S. planes, of Robert McNamara on the Gulf of Tonkin attack on innocent U.S. warships, of John Foster Dulles proving that communists, not capitalists, were out to conquer the world.
