Each country seems to have it's own method of dealing with problems. Some of them obviously work better than others. The video link below is mostly in Russian, but the video speaks for itself.

How about that - The Russians captured the Pirates, tied them up, put them on the boats, then set them all on fire - poof no more Pirates!


This video 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. One would think from now on, Russian ships will not be targets for Somali pirates.

My own addition to this:

The Political Correctness our country engages in is pure folly. We shouldn’t be apologizing for burning the old copies of the Koran in Afghanistan . Burning wasn’t efficient anyway. With all the problems getting supplies through Pakistan (thanks to our “oh so wonderful” allies) and into Afghanistan someone should have realized that these old books could have been used for toilet paper.

We shouldn’t be talking about prosecuting the young men who were foolish enough to have their photo taken relieving themselves on dead Taliban. At most, discipline them. But prosecute them? Send them out of the military with charges on their permanent record? That is over the line. Our government put them in that environment; subjecting them to double standards constantly. And then you have the audacity to expect perfect conduct?

It is okay for the enemy to abandon all civilized norms. It is okay for the enemy to strike at our young people from civilian neighborhoods and places of worship.

Anybody asking for apologies for that? Nope. Apologies for sending our people home killed or maimed?
This is insane. Stop putting our soldiers in these environments until you have the stomach to deal decisively with these animals, just as the Russians have done.

If there is collateral damage, that’s just too bad. A neighborhood or Mosque will quickly be seen as no safe place to hide once they start getting flattened.

We can’t possibly patrol all the mountain passes where insurgents and the supplies for IED’s come through from Pakistan . The supposed Pakistani allies of ours aid and abet the insurgents. (Any apologies given for harboring Bin Laden? Nope)

So, except for the mountain passes we need to use for logistics and transport, sow the rest with low yield tactical nukes.

That ought to keep those lowlifes from crawling out of and through them for 10,000 years.

If we don’t have the stomach to take the hard line, get out. Quit subjecting our troops to that. They deserve better.

They don’t deserve prosecuting you politically weak, politically correct, pandering lame excuse for leaders.

Leadership starts from the top. Our president shouldn’t apologize for America .

America shouldn’t apologize for anything.
Russia hasn’t skipped a beat. No hand wringing or apologizing coming out of them.
China doesn’t apologize. Iran doesn’t apologize. North Korea doesn’t apologize. Syria doesn’t apologize.
Israel, our ally, doesn’t apologize.

They dwell in the same global community that we do. Yet, somehow, we are obligated to apologize?

No, we are not.
