The Sinking Of The Cheonan: Another Gulf Of Tonkin Incident


The sinking of the Cheonan: Another Gulf of Tonkin incident
By Stephen Gowans | 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.

That’s not my conclusion. It’s the conclusion of Won See-hoon, director of South Korea’s National Intelligence. Won told a South Korean parliamentary committee in early April, less than two weeks after the South Korean warship, the Cheonan, sank in waters off Baengnyeong Island, that there was no evidence linking North Korea to the Cheonan’s sinking. (1)

South Korea’s Defense Minister Kim Tae-young backed him up, pointing out that the Cheonan’s crew had not detected a torpedo (2), while Lee Ki-sik, head of the marine operations office at the South Korean joint chiefs of staff agreed that “No North Korean warships have been detected…(in) the waters where the accident took place.” (3)

Notice he said “accident.” Read more.

The United States has become expert is manipulating the population into supporting wars of aggression. The Gulf of Tonkin incident is a prime example. We faked an attack, blamed the North Vietnamese and opened fire.

Over 1,200 architects and engineers are demanding a new investigation into 9/11, calling the official explanation a lie. Nine international scientists have positively identified nano-thermite explosives in the dust from the collapses.

Here is your smoking gun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZsA3xb2kOA

47 stories tall, housing the CIA and Secret Service. Unlike the Twin Towers it was not hit by a plane. Yet, at 5:20 PM on 9/11 dropped straight into its own footprint in 6.5 seconds. Official explanation? Fire.

Yep.
