Beck:The World Needs Men
Here is the text in the e-mail in which I received that link:
"This videotape shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalian pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker.(Thank you, F.G. Keep 'em coming, sir.)
The Euro Union navy that patrols these waters would not interfere because they feared there could be casualties.
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 hanged.
I would think from now on, Russian ships will not be targets for Somalian pirates.
(Back in the day, the USA knew how to deal with these situations, as well- prior to the dawn of political correctness.)"
