The sinking of the Cheonan: Another Gulf of Tonkin incident

The following analysis of recent US/south Korean accusations against Democratic Korea is by Stephen Gowans, from his blog, What’s Left:

While the South Korean government announced on May 20 that it has overwhelming evidence that one of its warships was sunk by a torpedo fired by a North Korean submarine, there is, in fact, no direct link between North Korea and the sunken ship. And it seems very unlikely that North Korea had anything to do with it.

There occurred an accident in which “Chonan”, 1 400 ton-warship of the south Korean puppet navy, sank all of a sudden in the waters between Paekryong Island and Taechong Island in the West Sea of Korea at night of March 26, the article said, and went on:
