US Orders Blackout Over North Korean Torpedoing Of Gulf Of Mexico Oil

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

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

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

Russian Navy atomic experts in these reports state that should Obama
choose the “nuclear option” the most viable weapon at his disposal is
the United States B83 (Mk-83) strategic thermonuclear bomb having a
variable yield (Low Kiloton Range to 1,200 Kilotons) which with its 12
foot length and 18 inch diameter, and weighing just over 2,400 pounds,
is readily able to be deployed and detonated by a remote controlled

Should Obama choose the “nuclear option” it appears that he would be
supported by the International Court of Justice who on July 8, 1996
issued an advisory opinion on the use of nuclear weapons stating that
they could not conclude definitively on these weapons use in “extreme
circumstances” or “self defense”.

On the other hand, if Obama chooses the “nuclear option” it would leave
the UN’s nuclear conference in shambles with every Nation in the World
having oil rigs off their coasts demanding an equal right to atomic
weapons to protect their environment from catastrophes too, including

To whatever decision Obama makes it remains a fact that with each
passing hour this environmental catastrophe grows worse. And even though
Obama has ordered military SWAT teams to protect other oil rigs in the
Gulf of Mexico from any further attack, and further ordered that all
drilling in the Gulf of Mexico be immediately stopped, this massive oil
spill has already reached the shores of America and with high waves and
more bad weather forecast the likelihood of it being stopped from
destroying thousands of miles of US coastland and wildlife appears

And not just to the environmental catastrophe that is unfolding the only
devastation to be wrecked upon the United States and South Korea by this
North Korean attack as the economic liabilities associated with this
disaster are estimated by these Russian reports to be between $500
Billion to $1.5 Trillion, and which only a declaration of this disaster
being an “act of war” would free some the World’s largest corporations
from bankruptcy.

Important to note too in all of these events was that this was the
second attack by North Korea on its South Korean enemy, and US ally, in
a month as we had reported on in our March 28th report titled “Obama
Orders ‘Immediate Stand-down’ After Deadly North Korean Attack” and
which to date neither the Americans or South Korea have retaliated for
and giving one senior North Korean party leader the courage to openly
state that the North Korean military took “gratifying revenge” on South

And for those believing that things couldn’t get worse, they couldn’t be
more mistaken as new reports coming from Japanese military sources are
stating that North Korea is preparing for new launches of its 1,300
kilometer (807 miles) intermediate range ballistic “Rodong” missile
which Russian Space Forces experts state is able to “deploy and
detonate” an atomic electromagnetic pulse (EMP) device, and which if
detonated high in the atmosphere could effectively destroy the American
economy for years, if not decades, to come.

I've been Sorcha Faaled!!

Well not really, I did open the topic at least so I was partially Sorcha Faaled. Still better than getting Rick Rolled I suppose.

amen to

the previous 2 posts..faal is rubbish ..

There Should Be

There should be a filter on the Daily Paul that automatically rejects any new thread with the words "Sorcha Faal" in the initial title or post.

Amen to take rlcm.

Recommend that this thread be taken down the memory hole.

Wow, this is embarrassing...

that this thread still lives. Trust me folks, I've worked on that rig and in the industry for 25 years. This was not terrorism, this was both human and mechanical failure.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

I was hoping..

you would be here to weigh in on this BugMan!

how is it effecting the rest of the drilling fleet?

Business as usual...

but with the heavy thoughts of friends and acquaintances that were on that rig. You can bet even more rigid safety practices, though they seemed too much already.

Insurance will probably go through the roof now, both for the big guys and us little contractors.

The goal is to figure out what happened, make double damn sure it doesn't happen again, and move on.

A black week for the industry, and the worst is yet to come it seems.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

I wish

you and your industry the best of luck! Thanks for feeding us with information.

Sorcha Fail.......


I wouldnt rule anything out

Including a major media blackout on the subject , but dont you think that BP would be screaming at the top of thier lungs as this being the cause if it were true?

I wish there was a way to rid the DP of this drivel.

It isn't a censorship issue. This source has been proven time and again to be just utter blabber.

I think a way to rate posters as well as postings would be nice.

Posting an article by Sorcha Faal would earn you negative points.

I like the ability to rate an article, but if this doesn't translate into it's appearing on the active topics list, then I don't see the point.

Michael? Is it possible to have both an "Active Topic" list and a "Popular Topic" list? Or can this be a user setting?

I think it would also be nice to see separate lists for each forum on the front page, an then you go to that forum when you click a topic. That way you don't just see the top 20 or so topics, but the top 20 or so in each category. (some good topics get bumped off fast with a single list)


Cui bono?

Assuming it was a submarine....
Does North Korea have submarines? How would they benefit by doing this? There is another terrorist country that does have submarines - and they would indeed benefit from such an act. Three guesses as to which country it is and the first two guesses don't count....

Does it start with an 'I'?

and end with and 'L'?

Did North Korea Attack Gulf Oil Rig?

Did North Korea Attack Gulf Oil Rig?

Are we being willfully disinformed by the American media as to both the cause and the possible solution to the oil rig disaster in the Gulf? If it's true that it was an attack by North Korea like this article, reportedly based on a Kremlin report, claims, I think it proves the point a lot of people have been making about Obama being an international embarrassment and a diplomatic pansy. The idea that a nuke is necessary to cauterize the oil flow... well that's even more fascinating, because I already knew Obama's a diplomatic lightweight who attracts international bullies like an asthmatic clubfoot on a playground.

Is this attack the result of Obama's weak, coddling, limp-wristed approach to pretty much every tin-pot dictator he's ever met? Certainly my disdain for Obama and his consistently destructive policies helps me give some credence to that idea. Is this report accurate? I have no friggin' idea. So far, I can't find any secondary sources, but I'm pretty sure that if EITHER of the major assertions made in this article are true, then we're in for a bumpy ride.

Neo, It sure does appear to be that way.

The Brits would have declared war on North Korea, not us.

Ironically, the world is ripe for an 'event' like this to occur to push us all into a world war.

Oil rig wrecking, sabotage, and the government

As long as everyone else is speculating about the origins of the oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, I am offering my two bits. I shall preface this by stating candidly that I have no proof of what I am about to offer, but I hope to raise questions regarding interesting possibilities.

It is certainly possible that it was an act of green "eco-terrorists".

Firstly April 20 is very close to Earth Day, the very time when media coverage of environmental issues would be at its most intense; most hostile to oil corporations like British Petroleum, and most favorable to greens!

Secondly, eco-terrorists have had a history since the '70s of other attacks on private property, both in Europe and in the USA, even when (maybe even especially when) their damage inflicted more damage to the environment than the drilling, mining, or the lumber harvesting itself.

Thirdly, despite fairly extensive experience with this kind of terrorism, nobody in the media, or the government has called attention to this possibility! I am a mere private citizen, with no particular axe to grind either with oil companies or with greens, and yet this is the first possibility which I considered upon hearing about it. Given the total saturation of "news" with stories of so-called "terrorism"--much less plausible than this--and a comparable saturation of "news" regarding the environment bordering on downright fraud, e.g. "Global Warming" over the past few decades, it is certainly odd that nobody seems to making a fairly plausible connection.

Oil and Gas drilling is being reconsidered on both the Federal and State level for many reasons. What better way to turn public opinion against it (even during this severe economic downturn) than instigating a catastrophe like the BP oil rig explosion? I have no proof that this is what happened, but as they say in prosecutors offices all over the world, "cui bono??"

The environmental movement has taken quite a beating in public opinion and public credibility since the exposure of fraudulent scientific data and subsequent coverup debunked their "global warming" and "greenhouse gases" nonsense. If ever a movement NEEDED a widely broadcast, vividly dramatic disaster to reaffirm its relevance and importance, they need it now. Their global warming baloney wasn't the first time they had lied to us, but it is the first time that their lies discredited the whole movement, at a time when they were preparing for a quantum leap upward in international influence with these "Cap-and-trade" carbon tax proposals.

Food for thought!!

Wishing everybody...

This is from Christopher Story's site

Those who know Christopher Story, know that his investigative reports are mostly "spot on." Here is what he has to say about the subject (nothing to do with N. Korea):

Just as our suspicions from the outset over the Polish air catastrophe at Smolensk proved to be justified, so do we and many others smell a giant rat concerning the explosion and fire at the BP oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. And the face of the rat bears an uncanny resemblance to the ugly physiognomy of George Bush Sr.

For starters, the cement casing that blew up was installed by the corrupt Cheney-CIA operation called Halliburton. Apparently this is the second time in a year that a Halliburton casing has failed catastrophically on an oil rig.

• Before we go any further, please note that we don't deny that alarmist reports about the oil rig explosion may or may not have substance: we don't know. We are alluding here specifically and exclusively to the Halliburton casing, which, as indicated, is the second such casing to have failed catastrophically in the space of a year.

It may be recalled from our earlier coverage that Halliburton operates a huge parasitical buying and ordering department within the Central Intelligence Agency and a parallel parasitical department inside the Pentagon, and that both these entities scam the opposite host on a routine basis, at the expense of the US taxpayer. Whether this unbelievable duplicated CIA scandal was investigated and wound up after we and others exposed it [see report dated 26th May 2008, excerpted below: ARCHIVE], we don't know. What we do recall is it became the subject of a Grand Jury investigation.

Horror stories associated with this colossal corruption op. included the faulty Halliburton gun manufactured in Saudi Arabia that routinely exploded and killed the gunner, which Halliburton continued selling long after the accidents in question (plus the despicably amoral cover-up of the reason for the gun operators' deaths); and the notorious delivery of 1,000 toasters which could be bought for $19.99 at any hardware store, but which Halliburton invoiced to the Pentagon for $1,891 a piece, on the spurious pretext that they were manufactured from a special metal.

Source Fail

I think this person is like "Bat Boy" who used to show up quite regularly on one of those tabloid newspaper covers.

Maybe one of these days Sorcha Faal

will issue a true report and it will be dismissed because of the source: The boy who cried wolf all over again.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

You've got to be kidding me.

I trust this was posted as a satire or as an object for our amusement, because when I woke up and shaved this morning, I didn't happen to notice the word "Twat" written across my forehead.

Are we honestly supposed to take this at face value?
