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.

The spokesman condemned the action of the Russian navy “our men never hurt their hostages, we simply want foreign ships to stop overfishing in our waters, if they are not happy to respect our-fishermen and their livelihood, we have no choice but to take hostage to compensate for the losses,” he cited.

“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.

And they didn't hurt the hostages so I guess that make them really nice hostage takers and not the criminals that are thought to be.

:rolleyes:

Now if only the rest of the world would take the same action when dealing with these thugs the problem would be fixed. Bravo to Russia for handling the situation correctly.

No quarter given to these animals.

Hanging would be better but a bullet to the head is much quicker. kudos to the Russians.

Usually, it's the parrot on the shoulder. Apparently, they have offices now.

Hanging them from their own boat and then just setting it adift would have been the appropriate response.

Unfortunately, most of the boats they attack with are nothing more than skiffs.

Nope. Bring them back to their port of origin and hang them there, then leave them on the scaffold. If a second pirate team departs from the same port, you burn the town.

They want to play 18th century, we'll play 18th century.

Shouldn't they be hanged from the highest yardarm?

At sea, yes. But on land, you can use a gibbet.

The point of executing them is to demonstrate that piracy is not going to be tolerated. The reprisal against the town is the second warning. There won't have to be a third.

Is it me, or did some of the pirates look more Arab than Somali, especially the guy who was bleeding out on the deck?

actually the Russian's are following OUR lead on this one, the Pirates don't fuck with American shipping very often because we go in and back them up. The group that was shoot a few weeks ago is the exception

When the 4 Americans were found dead on their yacht recently, the pirates should have been executed right then and there. Instead we "captured" them.
Trials cost money and so do bullets, but bullets are far cheaper even when the government buys them.

It kills me when we have to give them a criminal trial. They aren't American citizens, thank God. They probably thought they were in heaven when they were brought here to stand trial and get decent meals, clean clothes, etc.

The Russians have the right idea.

Reminds me of some of my old sales meetings. My standard joke was that the competition should put a parrot on their shoulders and wear one of those pirate hats. (ditto some of the reps at my own company). I always learned to watch my back. :D

They weren't found dead in their yacht. They were captured and the US was trying to get them back when something went wrong and they were killed. US troops stormed the ship and killing some and capturing the rest. However it's extremely RARE for the pirates to attack American ships of any kind because they know they don't stand to make any money from us.

there are over 2 dozen ships with over 800 crews captured in the area....NONE of their countries are backing them and leaving it up to the business to get them released.

When the US troops boarded the ship, the hostages were dead, so that is what I meant by "found dead".
At that point, when the US forces boarded the ship and saw the US hostages were dead, the 13 remaining pirates should have been shot and allowed to attain room temperature, although my personal preference would have been to just throw them overboard somewhere along the return route.

What captured pirates? They must have escaped into the Mediterranean. Oh well....

The Pirates opened fired on the USS Sterett with an RPG then lied that the American's opened fired first when they killed the hostages.

I agree that they should be feeding the fishes but we did leave 2 of them at room temp. My point is that that they don't fuck with American shipping often. It's very rare that they do.

The Russian's keep it up and the pirates won't be fucking with their shipping either.
