I am heart broken at this disaster. My prayers will be that most are saved. My heart goes out to the parents of the children and to the loved ones of the teachers. This is indeed a tragedy of epic proportions. Sending much love to the people of South Korea today.

before you start blaming other countries with your conscpricay theories and assumptions, which are not constructive and pointless. Spare a thought for those who have lost loved ones, and let investigators look into the actual cause!

  


People want to know the cause, because they don't want it to happen again.
And, because officials lie about almost everything, people are searching for clues as to what really happened, instead of believing some cover story lie.

I wonder if North Korea was involved? They usually are with disaster on/around the South Korean coast.

  


I' m sure they planted the reef there....

Damaged Sub Theory Holds Water
(a reef would have kept ship up)

How could this happen with the US Navy joint drill with S Korea called Max Thunder? There is 200k troops with several aircraft carriers with at least a 141 aircraft IN THIS AREA!

Watch for a damaged sub in the weeks to come.

How cold is this water? any bad currents? Depth?

They should bind the ship on much helicopters and the helicopters bring the ship to the land

Erm... No radar, sonar, or GPS navigation? Real hard to believe a modern ocean going ship can mess up due to fog. All reefs have been fully charted for decades. It’s not the 1800’s any more folks.

Soun ds more like an insurance deal than an accident…

The Americans are test firing their weapons on civilian ferries now. First they shot down the Malaysian plane because it is from The Commonwealth and then the Bokum EU Hareem schoolgirl kidnapping and now the fascists are targeting Korean ferry boats because they're against One Korea capital Pyongyang. The UK is OK and there is NOUSA.

  


When I read such comments and others here I am glad I live in South Africa. Even here we do not have so many stupid people.

Has john Kerry accused "Putin" yet?

  


Putin gets the blame for everything these days, even when it rains. Must be Putin again. Guess our leaders couldn't muster the great amount of respect Russia and Putin were getting from regular western citizens.

T here is a big psyop going on to make Russia look like a monster by people stuck in the eighties mindset. Silly thing is that the harder they try the more obvious it becomes who is really the bad guy.
