This may in part explain why the South Korean Navy was twitchy and mysterious about determining the cause of the Cheonan sinking: The Navy corvette Cheonan was warned on the morning it sank on March 26 that a salmon-class North Korean submarine and support ships had disappeared from their bases the day before, a lawmaker claims.

Democratic Party lawmaker Shin Hak-yong on Monday said on the morning of the North’s attack on the Cheonan, “warnings were given by the Second Fleet Command that a salmon-class North Korean submarine and support ships had been out to sea for unknown operations. Right before the Cheonan was attacked, all artillery guns on the nearby North Korean coasts were found to be combat-ready. But despite these rapid movements of the North Korean military, neither the Joint Chiefs of Staff nor the Second Fleet Command took appropriate measures.”
