I wonder why the south has not yet blamed these accidents on the DPRK. Surly, the spin doctors are conjuring up stories of how the DPRK was involved.
I post Here
What a ridiculous army. They keep dying all the time. I wouldn't expect a navy ship to sink after colliding with a fragging fishing boat.
Exactly my thoughts.
On a serious note:
Even though the ROK is an ideological enemy of the DPRK the former has only limited interests in blaming the majority of disasters on their brothers in the north. The ROK needs to maintain a minimum of diplomatic channels intact so that it may exercise its role as balancer within the framework of the Six-Party Talks. Even though the talks are suspended at the moment, the ROK can't put too much pressure on North Korea without risking that the latter rejects the very concept of multilateral talks. That would be a catastrophe for the denuclearization process of the Korean Peninsula.
I guess, no one in the South is willing to put the agreements of the fourth and the fifth round of the multilateral talks at risk by publicly stating the north was involved again in the death of South Korean soldiers. It seems that the Cheonan incident did damage enough concerning mutual trust.
