Response to Seems 'vanishing' story IS correct!!!!!!!!


With than many ships of those sizes missing from the seabed, we are dealing with an industrial effort, most certainly sanctioned by the Indonesian government.

The salvage of any given wreck, including site surveys, diving surveys, mobilization of equipment, operations would be weeks on any given wreck at those depths.
This was no barge with grab operation. Currently, i'm sideways involved with the scrapping of some Navy vessels in Nova Scotia, and while that is controlled and on land, it is still a many months long operation.

Also, to sail the wreckage through any of the straights around Celebes and Borneo without observation is impossible.

Indonesia never ratified any conventions as responsible countries do to protect underwater war graves or cultural property. They clearly stating not to feel responsible for the loss of any of these ships. Regardless of whether they did or did not know or benefited from it, the violation of a war grave is a crime, and not knowing what happens in your territorial waters under international maritime law is negligence. Negligence can be prosecuted.

Certainly, these blow hearts responding in media feel that poor countries have all kinds of rights and given the value of the steels, etc. These were no poor fishermen, they don't have that equipment.
