Damn, looks like those Chinese maggots striked again.

Definitely No chinese sub in this area ..... but as sign of humanity, China offers all help to rescue the crew. The chinese coast guard has the order to look out for lifeboats.

Speaking OOC, this is a most unusual affair.

The Koreans imply that they did not attempt to torpedo the vessel, suggesting that the Chinese did. The Chinese deny all involvement, but do not attempt to blame anyone; they merely offer humanitarian assistance.

*Somebody* or *something* caused the explosion. The question is, who will the world believe? 8o

RE: Canada, Eh? 1943 news

Speaking OOC:
Any involvement of a third party has to be discussed with the two parties of the war according to our rules and gentleman agreements. I can only speak for me, but this didn't happend, so i only make this unusual statement and will not go deeper.

Well, it was something I said in the IRC chat. If, for example, Japan were to send a sub into the area and sink a ship there, China or Chosen will be blamed for it.

As I see it, the Koreans didn't imply that they did not attempt to torpedo the vessel. They just shifted the blame to the Chinese. :)

... and I forgot to add this what I also said during the chat: In the end we can always blame Mexico, so they must be the ones who sank the ship. :)

Or may be stupid canadian engineers, which were unable to take care of their engines ;) :evil:

Yanno some of us ARE Canadians in real life....

At any rate there are the usual suspects who are chomping at the bit for for a chance to get involved in others conflicts, if it isn't scripted by you guys it isn't really cannon unless you say so.
