Russian Commandos capture and destroy Somali pirate ship
YouTube ^ | May 8 , 2010 | Russian Navy

Posted on 06/25/2014 6:57:50 PM PDT by LeoWindhorse

The Russians captured the Pirates, tied them up, put them on their boats, then set them all on fire. No more pirates. Plus, probably no more Somali pirates attacking Russian ships. This video shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalia pirate ship shortly after the ​pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker.

All conversations are in Russian with a single exception of when a wounded pirate says something in English and the Russian soldier says "This is not a fishing boat." All conversations between the commandos are in Russian. If you don't understand Russian, the pictures ​speak for themselves.

The soldiers freed their compatriots and the tanker. The Russian Navy Commandos moved the pirates back to their own (pirate) ship, searched the pirate ship for weapons and explosives and then they left the ship and exploded it with all remaining pirates hand-cuffed to it.

The commandos sank the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings. They used the ​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. Usually, they were hanged.

At least one leader knows how to deal with pirate vermin. Wished it was ours.

Were they shouting Allah Akbar when the ship went down?

It’s not just piracy (although it is), it’s the long history of Islamic banditry, totally sanctioned.

Yeah.....I wish we had one of them presidents.

YES!!! Gotta look to foreign countries for feel good, terrorist-fighting stories such as this, anymore.

So they took the pirates back to the Russian ship, then placed them aboard their original ship, and then blew it up? Doesn’t look very efficient.

I suspect the Russians wanted to search the pirate’s boat for any goodies before they blew it up.

The pirates are both Black and Muslim. That means that we practically worship them in America.

The bottom line works for me.

They didn’t need to understand Russian and the Russians didn’t need to understand Somalian.

But the message was received loud and clear and if nothing else, one ‘Pirate Crew’ will no longer be a plague on the ‘Seven Seas’.

The only thing I’d do differently is use bacon grease for ignition. I know, I know, it’s precious bacon grease; however, the global impact is well worth the sacrifice.

This is the way all terrorists should be dealt with as well, under the law of piracy.

Here is a U-Tube video of the incident (most likely) that you don’t have to sign in for. I can’t say that it is the actual event.

Heard a little more English, namely "What the f--- is this?" and "Why do you lie to me? This is not a fishing boat?"

One of the posters is speculating that the Russians didn't didn't actually kill the pirates, just turned them over to the authorities.

OK, fine. But who are the authorities on the high seas other than the captain of the rescue vessel?

America did early on. That is where the Marines get the part in the song, ...”to the shores of Tripoli”. America’s first war, as I understand it, was with Muslim pirates. I believe President Jefferson was at the helm.

I’m familar with the story. First of all it is not related to an oil tanker and true, none of the pirates were killed in the incident, just a paki capitan of the mother ship had his leg shot for being too much agitated during arrest.
It doesn’t mean these guys were ok after all. All have been handed to Iranian coast guard and in Iran piracy is punished by hanging so none of them is alive.

As for a tanker, one pirate was killed and another wounded but it was because they tried to shoot at boarding helicopter.

There is a video available too.

Here is a propaganda clip from RIAN:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg9AQLoD2cA

And here a phone video from marines (who are acting quite n*rdly themselves, probably gangsta rap fans):
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oJeUt_nzOPI

None was shot or even arrested after being captured this time. Survivors were given inflatable and released.

“I still suggest that Somalia be a boat free zone for the next 40 years (Two Generations).”

These 7th century savages watch these ships pass their little anus of the earth, and have to lash out because they have, and are, nothing. The civilized people of the world will do horrible things to them to prevent interruptions of commerce. In some cases women in this part of the world are paid like $2 to have their tubes burned with injections (sterilizing them). A month later the money is gone and their baby-breeding days are as well.

When Russians were communists it wasn’t uncommon to send marines to a location like this to shoot every male older 14, burn every boat and vehicle near the shore, to kill all their livestock and also to pour a jet fuel into wells.
You know, Marxism is nice but you know we aren’t ready for full communism so leave our commercial shipping alone.

How the Soviets handled terrorism.

http://articles.philly.com/1986-01-15/news/26052630_1_hostage-crisis-soviet-captives-islamic-liberation-organization

(Article abridged)

“The crisis began last Sept. 30, you might recall, when four attaches from the Soviet Embassy were kidnapped in Beirut by Muslim extremists. Western news agencies received individual photos of the four men that same night, each with an automatic pistol pressed against his head.

Although the Soviets attempted to open some channel for negotiations with the kidnappers, there was no immediate let-up in the shelling at Tripoli.

Only two days after the kidnappings, the body of one of the four kidnapped men, a 30-year-old consular secretary named Arkady Katov, was found, shot through the head, on a Beirut trash dump.

Apparently, that’s when the Soviets dropped the idea of sweet talk and turned the matter over to the KGB.

Less than four weeks later, the three remaining hostages were freed on foot only 150 yards from the Soviet Embassy

Tthe Soviets did not bother negotiating with Hezbollah through Nabih Berri, Lebanon’s justice minister and leader of the Shiite Amal militia.

Instead, the KGB kidnapped a man they knew to be a close relative of a prominent Hezbollah leader. They then castrated him and sent the severed organs to the Hezbollah official, before dispatching the unfortunate kinsman with a bullet in the brain.

In addition to presenting him with this grisly proof of their seriousness, the KGB operatives also advised the Hezbollah leader that they knew the indentities of other close relatives of his, and that he could expect more such packages if the three Soviet diplomats were not freed immediately.
