The end of a Somalian pirate ship... Russian style



I think they should have hung the pirates instead but the end result was far better than what we would have done!

I received this in an email, I hope it is accurate because the pirates deserve to have been blown up.
Go Russia do it again, maybe Obama could learn something about just punishment for terrorists instead of training US troops to put down American citizens who might ask for food that his Progressives friends will control.

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 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, 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 hung.

 I would think from now on, Russian ships will not be targets for Somalian pirates.




And I never thought I would agree with Russia.
