    SEOUL (Reuters) - A South Korean naval ship was sinking on Friday after possibly being hit by a North Korean torpedo and several sailors were killed, South Korean media reported.

    A South Korean warship later fired at an unidentified vessel toward the north, indicating a possible attack, and the South's presidential Blue House was holding an emergency security meeting, the Yonhap news agency said.

    "The ship appears to have begun sinking after an explosion at the rear of the ship," Yonhap quoted the South Korean Navy saying in a statement. "We have been unable to find the exact cause of the incident as of this moment."

    Ugh.

    Seeing as how the two countries are still technically at war, I don't imagine it would take too much for a resumption of hostilities.

    Pretty ballsy by North Korea if so, considering the people there are already supposedly not that far away from revolting against the government.

    Does anybody else remember anything of this magnitude in their lifetime? I don't.

    But the people aren't the ones with the guns. The army is apparently well fed and ready to fight (at least from what I understand).

    It's true. Biggest event of my lifetime. Of course, I was born today.

    Hold your horses.

    They can't even confirm that it was a torpedo that sunk the ship. Plus the South Korean navy was also firing at birds they thought were North Korean vessels.
