#1 The Norks will never give it up. I do wonder where it's gone, though.

#2 Pudgy probably wanted to go water skiing...

#3 Practically speaking, is there any reason why we don't just blow up the dang thing? And no, sanctity of NORK airspace or sovereignty is not a reason. Just a teensy sub-launched cruise missile. Or two, because anything worth blowing up is worth blowing up good.

#4 might it have sank from lack of maintenance?

#5 Maybe they plan on using it for target practice for their upcoming rocket launch....

#6 No way. The Norks would never let their prize sink.

Practically speaking, the reason we don't sink it with SLCMs is that the Norks would go ballistic.

#7 Hopefully the solar powered transmitters have not been discovered.

#9 Surprised an underwater demo team hasnt blown the keel. Also surprised the museum staff didnt take it on a night trip to Japan.

#10 It could be being armed for a suicide run with a nuke. It's not I'm sure, but it's possible.

Unlike their missiles...

#13 Unlike their missiles...

We have a winner!

I still don't see why we can't lob a SLCM on a dark and moonless night. SecState Shrillary can make the innocent puppy eyes of plausible deniability and all the missile parts are stamped Made in China. Who us?
