Crew recapture Taiwan ship from Somali pirates
AFP via Google ^ | November 6, 2011

Posted on 11/06/2011 12:10:19 PM PST by Pan_Yan

TAIPEI — The crew of a Taiwanese fishing vessel fought against armed Somali pirates to retake their ship after it was hijacked off East Africa, Taiwan authorities said Sunday.

The 290-tonne Chin Yi Wen with a crew of 28, including nine Chinese, eight Filipinos, six Indonesians and five Vietnamese, had been out of contact since Friday, the foreign ministry said.

But the crew managed to overwhelm the six armed pirates and retake control of their ship.

...

The Somali pirates fell into the sea, Tsay said, quoting the fishing boat owner, adding that details of the saga and the fate of the six pirates were not immediately clear.

The pirates fell into the sea. Oh, golly, we didn’t mean to do that!

Well, if Obama can do it with bin Ladin, then I guess fishermen can do it to Somali pirates.

Where’s the evidence?

You might appreciate this one:

The Somali pirates fell into the sea ... and the fate of the six pirates were not immediately clear.

Oopsie, they fell.

Someone has figured out how to handle the situation.

How do Russians unofficially handle this kind of thing after some Wodka, plenty of ammo, and plenty of free-time in the sunshine at sea?

Do NOT expect a fair fight or ANY decorum or restraint.

Do they use the Phalanx on them? Why, yesss...!

A great, raucous time!

eight Filipinos

Don't know the circumstances, but a friend of mine who was a WWII vet told me about working with the "Huks" while stationed in the Philippines. They would slither out of camp at night with a knife between their teeth and come back the next morning with "Japanese ears" as a testament to their evening's work. They would cut the throat of one man in the foxhole and take his ear. The next morning the rest of those in the foxhole would realize they could have been like him. It was devastating to their morale.

They did the same thing to Jap soldiers who were occupying the U S Army’s barracks at Fort Stotsenberg (Later Clark Air Base). Jap was terrified.

Boy, I'll bet they did. "Accidentally" hogtied and chained too, I would guess. Good riddance.

It's time for a blockade on the entire coastline of Somalia. Any boat leaving port to be instantly sunk, as well as all the other boats in the same port.

The deck must have been wet and they slipped. Wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to steal some heavy pieces of metal had had it tied to their necks when the slipped.

Understand they were commies, but brutal combatants.

I always admired fierce little soldiers. Like the Gurkhas and their skill with the kukri.

That is how the pirates should be handled.

Not brought here and treated like citizens by the corrupt DOJ and supported by taxpayers for the rest of their lives with a probable pardon from Holder and guaranteed citizenship from Obama and free education from Perry.

Of course the crew probably helped them to "fall". If more pirates "fell" into the sea there would be a lot less pirating going on.

That’s how you deal with the pirates. Throw them into the sea. Maybe make ‘em bleed a little to get the shark juices flowing.

Set up a gallows on board. Hang the leader with a rope greaded with pigs fat while all the others watching. Then the next in charge and so on, all the while allowing any pirate who wishes to jump overboard. Ship the last pirate back to Somalia.

The HUKS were and are Communists. The little Negritos whose village was outside the wire are credited with terrorizing the enemy in their barracks. The HUKS started
life as Hukbong Bayan Laban sa mga Hapon, anti Japanese guerillas; after the war, they showed their true color - Red.

Really, they just fell into the sea....We don’t know what happened to them after that...LOL...

This is why the Asians are kicking our arses in the West right now....they’re still a bit barbarous.

How do you think we won the west...by being nice?

We, as a people, better get back our edge or we are done.

I'm sure the crew will get a stern talking to from the Taiwanese version of OSHA when they get back in port.
