Is North Korea responsible for the oil rig explosion?

The EU Times is reporting that a North Korean Submarine torpedoed the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico!  This is a huge story, and it is not being reported by U.S. Media.  According to the article, a massive U.S. media blackout was ordered by the Obama Administration; if this report is true (I’d like to see clarification, but I have no reason to believe that it is not), the implications are enormous.  Here’s an excerpt from the article, which can be read in entirety HERE:

A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that the United States has ordered a complete media blackout over North Korea’s torpedoing of the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform owned by the World’s largest offshore drilling contractor Transocean that was built and financed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., that has caused great loss of life, untold billions in economic damage to the South Korean economy, and an environmental catastrophe to the United States.

Most important to understand about this latest attack by North Korea against its South Korean enemy is that under the existing “laws of war” it was a permissible action as they remain in a state of war against each other due to South Korea’s refusal to sign the 1953 Armistice ending the Korean War.

To the attack itself, these reports continue, the North Korean “cargo vessel” Dai Hong Dan believed to be staffed by 17th Sniper Corps “suicide” troops left Cuba’s Empresa Terminales Mambisas de La Habana (Port of Havana) on April 18th whereupon it “severely deviated” from its intended course for Venezuela’s Puerto Cabello bringing it to within 209 kilometers (130 miles) of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform which was located 80 kilometers (50 miles) off the coast of the US State of Louisiana where it launched an SSC Sang-o Class Mini Submarine (Yugo class) estimated to have an operational range of 321 kilometers (200 miles).

On the night of April 20th the North Korean Mini Submarine manned by these “suicidal” 17th Sniper Corps soldiers attacked the Deepwater Horizon with what are believed to be 2 incendiary torpedoes causing a massive explosion and resulting in 11 workers on this giant oil rig being killed outright.  Barely 48 hours later, on April 22nd , this North Korean Mini Submarine committed its final atrocity by exploding itself directly beneath the Deepwater Horizon causing this $1 Billion oil rig to sink beneath the seas and marking 2010’s celebration of Earth Day with one of the largest environmental catastrophes our World has ever seen.

To the reason for North Korea attacking the Deepwater Horizon, these reports say, was to present US President Obama with an “impossible dilemma” prior to the opening of the United Nations Review Conference of the Parties to the Treat on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) set to begin May 3rd in New York.

This “impossible dilemma” facing Obama is indeed real as the decision he is faced with is either to allow the continuation of this massive oil leak catastrophe to continue for months, or immediately stop it by the only known and proven means possible, the detonation of a thermonuclear device.

This would explain why Obama has deployed the military  to the Gulf.  It is also possible that the whole story is a hoax, but I’m certainly going to keep my eyes and ears open for more news.

  1. Still waiting on confirmation on this story. But it wouldn’t surprise me that Kim Jong Il or Ahmadinejad would poke ol’ ‘Bama in the eye, just to show the world what an international wuss he is.

    I have to call hoax on this. No major new service is going to take this seriously. Here’s why:

    The DPRK Navy has 26 “large” submarines (as opposed to small infiltration and sabotage submarines). All of them are were designed in the 1950’s and 60’s. All of them are regarded as obsolete and only useful as training and coastal defense. the most advanced are the 22 Romeo class subs they have. In looking this stuff up I found this on a site called “Sino Defense”

    “The Type 033 is generally regarded as an ageing design, only suitable for coastal defence and patrol duties. The submarine is very noisy, and incapable of operating deep oceans far from its homeport, and is very noisy. Most of these submarines were retired from active duty throughout the 1990s, with only few remaining in service for training and surveillance purposes. A number of Type 033 submarines have been mothballed in caves for reserve, and can be restored to service condition in short period. China sold four Type 033 submarines to North Korea, and also supplied kits for local production.”

    Iran only operates three Kilo class submarines that might be capable of doing this. As the Kilo class can only travel 400 miles submerged without snorkeling it would be very difficult for it to pull off the trip in secrecy. Especially as the 5th Fleet is between Iran and the Gulf of Mexico. Further, Iran is not known for the upkeep of it’s military equipment. This would be a huge gamble, even for the Mullahs.

    As I am Army, not Navy here is a list of the references I used:'s_Navy

    Wikipedia is not the greatest reference but it is usually a good starting point.

      Thanks for your input, James. I wasn’t betting the farm on the story, that’s for certain, but as one commenter on another blog said, the “exquisite timing” of this disaster is a curious thing. Seems like a very good excuse to do a lot of bad things to the oil industry and hence, the economy. Oil rigs don’t just up and “explode” on their lonesome, now…do they? I dunno. At any rate, this theory seemed the most plausible of any I’ve seen so far, and who really knows what the “truth” is; the result is, the oil industry in the United States is hosed for the foreseeable future. 🙁

      • James S. says:

        I tend to agree with you that the timing is suspicious. However, I tend away from conspiracy theories. If it is a conspiracy involving the gov’t I tend to dismiss it because, well, it’s the Gov’t. Gov’t service does not attract our best and brightest. Even in the military. Imagine a conspiracy run by your DMV. Yeeah. That’s what you’ll get in from the Gov’t. A conspiracy from a corporation is more plausible but still far fetched. They DO attract the best and brightest. And the ambitious. Would an ambitious person let themself be second fiddle or a bit player? Maybe, but CYA. Throw in the tendency for a person to think they are more valuable in a organization than they actually are and if someone thinks someone is holding out or they are not getting their just share then you have a problem. I’m not sure this applies with orgnizations like ACORN. I think the problem with ACORN was that the people on the bottom didn’t get the memo that said it was a conspiracy. You might say that conspiracy combined the problems of both the Gov’t and corporations. High ambition at the top with day to day stuff run by the DMV.

        I heard on the Steve Gill show yesterday that the problem may have occurred after some sort of capping operation. I’m willing to bet it has something to do with that. Never attribute to malice what can better be attributed to incompetence, ignorance, or stupidity.

          Here’s a good summary, though the article tends to agree with you. And, hey, it includes Haliburton! There’s conspiracy fodder for everybody!

          • James S. says:

            Here’s some more fodder for you. The Bolivarian Armada of Venezuela (Venezuelan Navy) is a very short distance away. They operate 5 submarines (2 Type 209 (German made) and 3 Improved Kilo class). I’m not sure if Venezuela hangs out with the DPRK but they are cozy with Iran. If this is true then they are probably the culprit. Of course, the question is, how loyal is the Navy to Hugo? Would they follow an order like this?

    James, I agree that most conspiracies require the suspension of too much belief. Look at Watergate; the “Plumber’s Unit” of CREEP couldn’t even pull off a second-rate black bag job without getting pinched. And legitimate national security information is always being leaked by those who think their conscience trumps the safety of America (e.g., the Pentagon Papers). If there was a “conspiracy” to force a complete blackout of possible foreign military responsibility for this tragedy, how long before someone (out of a large number of people) decided to spill their guts?

    Having said that, if a military provocation was attempted, how likely is it that our current CIC would respond militarily? Or would he dispatch the Smart Diplomacy Team to put a band-aid on the kerfuffle?

    An interview with a worker who was on the rig when it blew:

    At the end he says he does not think it was terrorism.
