N. Korea ship accused of violating US sanctions could be auctioned, used in Navy SEAL training

The North Korean bulk cargo carrier formally seized by the United States this week could become an auction item or a training boat for Navy SEALS.

The Wise Honest, North Korea’s second-largest cargo vessel, is on its way to American Samoa after federal prosecutors said Thursday that the ship was seized because it carried banned exports of North Korean coal.

“Today’s civil action is the first-ever seizure of a North Korean cargo vessel for violating international sanctions,” U.S. attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement from the Justice Department.

“Our Office uncovered North Korea’s scheme to export tons of high-grade coal to foreign buyers by concealing the origin of their ship, the Wise Honest," the statement continued. "This scheme not only allowed North Korea to evade sanctions, but the Wise Honest was also used to import heavy machinery to North Korea, helping expand North Korea’s capabilities and continuing the cycle of sanctions evasion. With this seizure, we have significantly disrupted that cycle. We are willing and able to deploy the full array of law enforcement tools to detect, deter, and prosecute North Korea’s deceptive attempts to evade sanctions.”

I believe he thinks b/c he has nukes he can do what he wants. He would probably lob some shells someplace and kill So Koreans... This could get spooky...
