    As I saw this image, a thought came across my mind.
    "North Koreans really did sink the Cheonan..."
    I'm sure that many others would think the same after taking a quick look at this poster.

    Here's the problem: the North Koreans will claim credit for anything that will help advance their cause. Not saying that they didn't do it. Just saying that this doesn't necessarily prove that they did. It's a subtle difference between "we did it" and "this is what happens when you mess around with us." The first one is a definite admission while the second one is hyperbole that hints and implies but isn't really an admission.

    Still have to wonder why the North would even want to flirt around with propaganda that might bring heat from the rest of the world. Then again, the North Koreans aren't exactly pragmatic, and through their arrogance may see this as nothing more than just saber rattling than actionable admission.
