I know we have a thread on the actual raid but I didn't see this article in there and I figured that it was worthy of it's own thread

Platoon commander: Pirate ‘sh– his pants’ after Marines captured him
Military Times Blog
September 9, 2010
By Dan Lamothe
Has a new legend been born?
I’m going out on a limb here: Events that have occurred in the last 24 hours in the Gulf of Aden
will give drill instructors and recruiters across the Marine Corps a new story to use as motivation
in the future.
It’s hard not to believe that when you boil the details of the rescue of the Magellan Star down to
the basics. Ready?
1) The ship, a German-owned shipping vessel, reports Wednesday that their ship had been
captured about 85 miles off the coast of Yemen.
2) Heavily armed force reconnaissance Marines with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, out of
Camp Pendleton, Calif., board the ship early Thursday, backed by a force that included snipers
with Pendleton’s 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, and numerous helicopter gunships.
3) Marines take control of the ship without a shot being fired. After being detained, one of the
pirates defecates in his pants, according to a Marine captain on board at the time.

In case you missed in the story linked above, I’m not kidding about No. 3. In a conference call
with reporters Thursday afternoon, Capt. Alexander Martin, commander of 2nd Platoon, Force
Reconnaissance Company, which boarded the ship first, shared that last detail. His quote in the
story:
“As soon as the first stack of Marines made our way into the bridge, their hands were up, their
weapons were down, they moved to their knees and they were compliant,” Martin said. “At that
point, they were pretty scared. One guy actually defecated himself. … He sh– his pants. I don’t
know if that can go on the news or not, but that actually happened.”

Yes, Capt. Martin, that can go on the news. In fact, considering it could become part of Corps
lore, it seems relevant to include, in my estimation.
Reaction to the poopy-pants pirate story was interesting after I Tweeted a few details about it
Thursday night. Consider the following…
From MissHedgeHodge: Can’t wait to see the T-Shirt: Marines make pirates crap their pants.
From noonanjo: sure DIs are already preaching it at Paris Island
Oh, give it some time. Say, until today.

The Marine Corps has a rather infamous reputation overseas. So which relative did you kill to get in?

I remember in boot camp the DI's made a recruit shit his pants.
Poor kid had to sit on the shitter for days until they could get rid of him (dropped)

Betcha they'd fall for the oldest trick in the book that would make ALL of then shit themselves.

A grinning Marine pulls a fork and spoon out of his pocket.


"Corporal, I am getting tired of you eating all of the prisoners we take. If you eat so much as a single bite out of any of these prisoners, I will have you court matrialed!"

'Aw, Gee, Sir."

Corporal goes off muttering and mumbling.

If a bunch of Force guys came storming into a room all jocked up and they were after me, I'd probably shit my pants too.

I LOVE giving the Jarheads crap for the weird shit they do, and their association with the Navy, and the brainwashing, but god damn I wouldn't want to have to go up against their infantry where they actually wanted to kill my ass.

Rock on. Good shit Marines!

LOL Captured Iraqis in first gulf war told us that we had to kill and eat a family member to become a Marine. If only they knew it was really 2 family members.

Is there such a thing?

Those Pirates are brave vs unarmed Ships crew

But the reality of somebody trained to make you greet your maker on the other end of a weapon is not good to them
And that person will pull the trigger in (less than) a second to protect himself or a fellow service member

Course as said before
He was just glad it was not the Russians
He would have done the same thing but it would have been because he was dead

We had an intel gunny with us while deployed in Africa. He had a missing front tooth, one day after a couple of beers at the embassy Cameroon, I called him "Toothless Hunden"....Hilarity ensued even more when a Jarhead from the MSG detail slid down some MRE gum. One of the squares was white....I told him "we could fix this problem right now, right here." as I held up the gum to his mouth.
