Subject: Russian handling of Somali pirates... ////////////// RUSSIAN NAVY CAPTURES SOMALIAN PIRATES/////////// Watch video here or download it before it's taken off the site. ////////// Something the ABC, SBS and the commercial TV networks won't show (not politically correct for them). /////////// This videotape shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalian pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker. The Euro-Union navy that patrols these waters would not interfere because they feared there could be casualties. ///////////////// All explanations are in Russian with a single exception of when a wounded pirate says something in English. All conversations between the commandos are in Russian. If you don't understand Russian, the pictures speak for themselves. ///////////// The soldiers freed their compatriots, moved all the pirates 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 on it. //////////// The commandos sunk the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings, lawyers etc. That is, 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. ////////////// Russian ships will not now be targets for Somalian pirates. /////////// Good on the Russians. No mucking about or tip-toeing over the Tulips here etc. These pirates have no sympathy towards the ships and their crew (just look at their weapons they carry), it's tit-for-tat, the only way they know. Unfortunately for them, they lost. ///////////////// SCORE:///////////// RUSSIANS = 1///////// PIRATES = 0////////// SHIPPING LANES = 1 less pirate crew to worry about./////////// 000000000
