LINK Way to go Marines

Marines, armed with blow torches and saws, finally cut a platter-size hole through a wall of the crew's hiding place. Marine Capt. Alexander Martin stuck a bullhorn through and announced, in English and Russian, that the pirates had been subdued.

Indeed, take them out to the Indian ocean, give them a small boat with oars, no food, no water and tell them "you're free to go home". Remember to give them a big smile

Excellent job by the Marines.

Probably burned all the air out of their little hiding place...I hope....

Whatever you do, don't bring that crap back home!

Leave the trash at the curb (Marianas Trench) and wipe your shoes off (scrub tapes and other recording devices) before you come on home (port).

In the past, the anti-piracy task force has sent captured Somali buccaneers to Kenya and the Seychelles, the only countries in the region who have agreed to prosecute for prosecution.


An editor should be slapped for allowing this in print. The Washington Compost.


But good on the Marines!!!

Those pirates are human beings and deserve to be treated fairly.

Repatriation to their home port is the proper thing to do.

They should be loaded into the proper military aircraft, get fed and well treated and brought to their home port and discharged.

After the pirates are discharged carefully from the airplane, the plane should then land and refuel for the trip back to their base.

I wonder if the crew hadn't been in a safe room, if the marines would've still boarded.

This is the way the Indian Navy does it.

Indian Navy neutralises pirate attack in the Gulf of Aden

Indian Navy neutralised a pirate attack planned on merchant vessels passing through the Gulf of Aden on Sunday.

Indian naval ship INS Delhi, a guided missile destroyer, has been deployed in the Gulf of Aden since July to escort and thwart pirate attacks on merchant vessels.

INS Delhi was escorting 12 merchant vessels, including an Indian flagged merchant vessel Jag Ratan, when a small-sized, corridor boat named Bareeda was detected 180 kilometres off the Somalian coast. The boat was moving towards the merchant vessels at very high speed.

INS Delhi tried to alert the boat on the Mercantile Marine Radio, but there was no response despite repeated calls.

Suspecting that it could be a pirate boat trying to launch an attack on the merchant vessels, marine commandos on INS Delhi headed towards Bareeda in interceptor boats. A helicopter from INS Delhi was also launched for aerial support.

After successfully intercepting the boat, marine commandos found eight people onboard seven of whom were Somali nationals, while one was a Yemeni. Marine commandos also recovered a huge cache of arms and ammunition and excess fuel reserves onboard.

Navy officials said the eight were disarmed and were left with sufficient fuel to sail back to their harbour.

You need to ask for a refund on your $29.95 Speed Reading Course.

Hmmm. VBSS teams are usually USN personnel. Didn't have Marines on my ship, though.

This is only fitting and decent.


On an entirely unrelated note.
I happened to notice a set of marine engine cylinder heads for sale on the New Delhi Craigslist.
