Russian Navy On How to Deal with Pirates...
Reaganite Republican ^ | July 09, 2011 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 07/09/2011 3:56:10 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

This is how you do it:  nab the perps, tie 'em up, put them back on their own boat, then set the whole kit and kaboodle on fire and.... pooof, no more pirates. The video below shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somali pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker. A number of commands directed at the prisoners are heard from from an English-speaking Russian, i.e. when the commandos find a weapons stash ("WTF??!")- and "This is not a fishing boat!"

The soldiers immediately freed their compatriots and the Russian oil tanker. They moved the pirates back to their own skiff, searched the boat for weapons and explosives...then left the ship and exploded it with all remaining pirates hand-cuffed to it.

No court proceedings, lawyers etc- they simply employed the common sense anti-piracy laws of the 18th and 19th centuries, where the captain of the rescuing ship has the right to decide what to do with the pirates. In most circumstances... they were hung on the spot. This time they were vaporized,  what's the diff... dealer's choice!

Russian ships can now enjoy a substantial deterrent effect.... one other countries like ours could too, if they just allowed the people in their military to do their jobs without asking a bunch of totally unnecessary questions about the methods. They were caught red-handed, that's all anyone really needs to know.

And what the enemy off the coast of Somalia -who would kill you for $50- needs to know they will die quickly, painfully, and still dirt poor if they even look at American ships the wrong way... the Kremlin obviously understands the concept of maintaining a credible deterrent, anyway:

You have to make sure that one or two of the pirates survive to tell the tale to their compatriots... otherwise they’ll never know about it.

A sizable percentage of the dirt poor in Somalia would kill to get INTO an American prison.

Maybe we could get the Russians to straighten out our Congress since the pubs can't get the job done.

The Russians have never valued human life, not of their enemies and not of their own people including their soldiers but their approach to terror is zero tolerance and you have to give them credit for setting up a deterrent like the one seen in the video. They did the same thing in Beirut in the 1980’s with the Hizbollah and it worked!

seriously want to deal with pirates, I mean “Maritime Organizers”? capture a “ship” hang all the pirates off the side, light the thing on fire and steer it towards their home port. Once they see that there is a serious disincentive for their activity they’ll opt for a different vocation.
It worked before.

Maybe they’ll come here and wind up driving cabs and work in parking garages.

I have to wonder what went through the Russian Commandos’ collective heads after they discovered the weapons? If you at the rifles they all are ex-WARSAW Pact weapons.

Did the Commandos realize that they and their fellow countrymen could have been killed by weapons their previous (?) leaders had provided the “pirates”?

Yeah, but the Somalis are too poor to have a computer, electricity, and internet.

I am surprisingly all for this approach. At some point the typical US liberal pansy is going to have to recognize the kill or be killed world we live in today. My feeling is that they will do so only if they are granted the time to ponder at the moment they are being killed by our enemies.

We know were most of the pirates and ships are, all of these should be vaporized by Navy pilots tomorrow

Of course, we’d be dreaming to expect that of this administration

Once upon a time you had to do that. Now we have Youtube.

They understand the psychology of the average mohammedan terrorist. Mohammedans are fearless against an unarmed school bus loaded with Israeli school girls or against ships where the companies force the crews to remain unarmed because it's easier to pay the ransom . When you start using their own barbaric tactics on them it becomes a different story. Suddenly the promise of 72 virgins in the afterlife isn't such a great thing.

Why doesn’t the U.S. Sign a contract to have Russians protect Our Ships? Heck! We now have to depend on them to ferry our Astronauts into and outa Space! They sure know how to treat the Pirates in a language they understand!

May be it will disappoint somebody, but footage didn’t contradict official report (”pirate vessel annihilated, pirates liberated in rescue boat”). No direct evidence there were people on sinked vessel.
Anyway pirates didn’t returned home. They were deep in the ocean.

About the same time that William Richard “Rich” Higgins was captured and murdered in Lebanon an agent of the KGB was captured.

In the negotiations the KGB learned who the ring leader was and kidnapped his brother. They killed him, “liberated” his testicles stuffed them in his mouth, and left him in the trunk of a car with a note: Return our man or we take your entire family.

He was released the next day.

No, they're criminals. They'll come here, go on welfare, and vote democrat.

It's the law abiding ones who come here to drive taxis.

Doesn’t specifically show them on the ship when it is set on fire, but it would be fitting justice for the piracy and killing perpetrated by the Somalis. Time to end this mess.

I emailed fox. Whatever good that will do. Yet with this bunch they mostly talk for ratings I think. He is the main reason I do not watch FOX anymore.

The video doesn’t show if the pirates were still onboard when they lit off the explosives, but I hope they were.
