And while the hunt has so far involved no americans, south korea's leaders are using the presence of 37-thousand US troops as a big stick...
Saying today they want to restart annual war games with the Americans called Team Spirit...called off last year as a gesture to the north duriog talks on disbanding North Korea's nuclear program. The North see team spirit as a threat...preparations for war.
The Americans haven't responded yet to the South's request...but US officials have said they don't want the North Korean incurwion t disrwpt the delicate deal worked wt witi the North curbing its nuclear ambitions.
Meanwhile..the war of words is being fought equally hard on both sides...the South calling the incident a deliberate military provocation.
The North finally issuing a statement insisting the submarine was on a routine training mission in the North when the engine failed and it drifted into South Korean water. It is made mostly of plastic to avoid detection by radar or other senors.
And proving that reality doesn't always figure-in when it comes to these two countries..the north is now demanding the submarine and it's dead crew be returned. The answer from the south...not now, not ever.
