North Korea submarine ‘missing’ as US-South Korea drills continue

A North Korean submarine is missing and presumed sunk, according to reports in the US media.

The vessel was operating off the North Korean coast for several days when it disappeared, a paper with close links to the US military says.

The accident comes at a time of heightened tension in the region as South Korea and the US continue their largest-ever military exercise.

North Korean has issued another threat of war over the drill.

    Perhaps South Korea sent a diver down to knock on the hatch.

    North Korea’s economy couldn’t sustain a war for more than 30 days.

    • Correction: 30 hours.

      Put a price on Kim Jong-Un’s head and let the generals take care of the rest.

    Photo of the Dear Leader stuck in the hatch and searching the ocean for the rescue crane he called for.

    Somebody either flushed the toilet or looked out the ‘window’ to see where they were going.

    I wonder how a nuke dropped right on Dear Leader’s house would work. 😉
