Beck:The World Needs Men

From Billy Beck:

Memo to Field Marshal Rodham: if this video is real, then this is how to deal with the Somali pirates. They are dirt-scratching savages worth nothing more.

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.

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.)"
(Thank you, F.G. Keep 'em coming, sir.)

As long as the pirates were caught in the act, and these men weren't executed simply because weapons were on their boat, fine with me. Pirates there and here, commandeering private boats for drug smuggling, show no mercy to those aboard.

Yes, this is how to deal with pirates. Sadly, it would be too shocking for the faint of heart Americans in "leadership" roles. As Billy said, WE NEED MEN! not appeasers.

Do you think Russia gives a damn about the world court of opinion? They know how to take care of business. We, on the other hand have been lulled into the John Lennon, "Imagine" daydream of utopia. Good luck with that.

"Why do zyou lie to me?...this is not a fishing boat?" said after pulling out grenades and AKs ----Ha Ha

YES, that is how you treat pirates!

This reminds me of Ron Paul's bill that would have put forth "Letters of Marque and Reprisal" against the terrorists.

Refer to: Article I, Section 8, paragraph 11 of the U.S. Constitution for details.

We could have taken after them, caught them, and then punished them. Punishment is what "Reprisal" is all about. "Marque" refers to crossing borders if necessary. It would have all been legal. Catch and hang, thats the way it used to be done. Instead we continue to violate the Constitution - and with cheers from many who pride themselves in wanting to "Restore the Constitution".

Sounds like the email was written by the same guy who wrote the "Taps was a song a Union officer found in the pocket of a dying Confederate soldier . . . who just happened to be his son." I'm calling B.S. on the events depicted in the email. Just some bloodthirsty wishful thinking. Though I wouldn't put it past the Russians. The manly way to put an end to a threat is to do it quickly. Causing unnecessary suffering of any living thing, be it a dog or a human, is un-manly and in-human.

They can't be Russians. When was the last time the Russians freed anything without killing most of the hostages and 50+ innocent bystanders?

Well, Jimmy, there's no video of the actual retaking of the tanker ship, or of the tanker afterward, so they may have.

While I have nothing against sinking a pirate ship (if it clearly was a pirate ship) with the pirates aboard ... simply allowing more ships to be armed would go a long way towards discouraging this. And who would not want to be on this cruise: http://maggiesfarm.anotherdotcom.com/archives/11581-Luxury-Pirate-Hunting-Cruise.html

Because the Somalis can't speak Russian, and the Russians can't speak any of the Somalian dialects of Arabic (or Swahili.)

English is a universally known language. Kind of like Chinese will be in 20 years.

I remember this.

What actually happened is that the Russians put them all in a life raft and set them free along with a transponder in case they needed help.

The transponder signal stopped after a few hours, and it was presumed that the life raft sank and all the pirates drowned.

The euro-weenies were troubled by this. The Russians merely shrugged.

Or maybe they did handcuff them to their "mother ship" and blew it up. Life rafts can be very expensive, after all, and these are just Somali pirates.

Either way, they're dead, and the world will no longer be troubled by them.
