….they shoot them.
From time to time I’ve mentioned the Somali pirates on these pages and last week I meant to update you on the 11 Somali pirates who attacked a US military ship, were taken into custody and were indicted in Virginia. If convicted they will spend the rest of their lives in a US prison at God knows what expense to the US taxpayer.
Contrast that to the story from Somalilandpress about how the Russian military responded to a pirate attack on a Russian ship.
BOSASSO (Somalilandpress) — A pirate spokesman, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted Somalilandpress today said at least ten of his men were executed by the Russian navy after the troopers stormed MV Moscow University.
“The Russians commandos stormed the ship before sunrise, starting a firefight with our men, onboard they injured three of them and one was killed,” he said.
He dismissed the Russian navy statement that the men were released because of “the absence of a legal base to carry out prosecution procedures against pirates”.
“The Russians never released the young men instead they shot them point-blank range then loaded their lifeless bodies back on the boat,” he added.
Would someone tell me why the US is always the bad guy and tell me why the political Left loves Russia?
