Although I have not been following the sinking of the South Korean warship closely, I am quite intrigue with the "how" it could happened. Without the benefit of reading the full report of the incident, my opinions are based purely on the newspaper articles as well as internet news portal on the event.
"In the dead of the night, a large explosion suddenly erupted which cased power in the ship to cut-off. Immediately, the ship started to split into two and started sinking."
"Based on forensic evidence, it was alleged that the ship was hit by a torpedo fired from a submarine at close range."
Here is where I do not get it. How could a warship with first world technology unable to detect a submarine that is so closed (the alleged submarine was of an old soviet design with cold war era technology)? How could the same ship cannot even detect a speeding torpedo launched against it?
The South Koreans and the American must answer these two questions fast. Otherwise the whole "invincibility" persona of modern Western technology is suspect.
