SOMALIA: Russia executed all Somali pirates spokesman
Somaliland Press ^ | Somaliland Press

Posted on 03/21/2011 8:35:45 PM PDT by AfricanChristian

BOSASSO — A pirate spokesman, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted Somalilandpress today said at least ten of his men were executed by the Russian navy after the troopers stormed MV Moscow University.

“The Russians commandos stormed the ship before sunrise, starting a firefight with our men, onboard they injured three of them and one was killed,” he said.

He dismissed the Russian navy statement that the men were released because of “the absence of a legal base to carry out prosecution procedures against pirates”.

“The Russians never released the young men instead they shot them point-blank range then loaded their lifeless bodies back on the boat,” he added.

Too bad the Russkies didn’t string the pirates from the yardarms.

Russia (and later USSR) traditionally makes it a point to make it a point that she will not be trifled with. America and the EU OTOH can be messed with as much as possible. The angst after the legal killing of the pirates on the lifeboats a few years back told them all they needed to know: there is no downside in killing Americans or Europeans.

Hey, they could have fed them to the sharks. The pirates are lucky they caught them on a good day.

““We condemn the action of the Russians, it’s driven by racism and hate for black people and Africa, it’s the face of the new Russia. In future, if we capture Russians they will meet the same fate as those they executed,” he added.”

I wasn’t aware that the DEMOCRAT PARTY had an office over there.

AfricanChristian (Since Mar 5, 2011) finds nebulous Somali website, Somaliland Press, and posts on FR an article published Wednesday, May 12, 2010.

Note comments at bottom beginning 44 weeks ago. That is somewhat of a tipoff.
