"A North Korean torpedo attack was the most likely cause for the sinking of a South Korean warship last month, according to a U.S. military official.(CNN, emphasis added). It seems to me that this will test the MOMCOM world nanny foreign policy.
The United States believes the ship was sunk by the blast of an underwater explosion, but that the explosive device itself did not come in contact with the hull of the South Korean ship, the official said. This is the same conclusion expressed by South Korean military officials.
The U.S. Navy has an investigative team assisting the South Koreans.
The U.S. official declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the matter and due to the fact neither South Korea or the United States has publicly discussed any potential response."
We have had a large military presence in South Korea for half a century now, so have we trained them to fiend for themselves, or do they need another half century?
Some would say that if we can't "nanny up" in 50 years, forget it, pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq now, because our nanny protocol has gone wanting, like the 26 million or so Americans who have lost jobs, homes, health care, and hope.
The lack of the beating of the tom-toms and rattling of sabres on the MOMCOM news is probably a sign that they have not decided what to do yet?
