Boom Headshot!

 

US ship captain is freed when snipers kill pirates. I’ve been following the Somali pirate hostage situation. From the beginning it was just another powerboat grappling up to a ship and pirates coming onboard. Then a pirate got his hand ice-picked and the ships captain gives himself up as the only hostage to get the pirates off the boat. Around the same time U.S. warships started trailing the pirates, and this culminated in three pirates being sniped off and a fourth giving himself up. Of course the Somali representative pirates (I don’t know what else to call them) are saying the same thing they did when French and Indian forces used deadly force on pirates. “Oh man now when you guys come after us we’re just killing hostages.”

Seriously? QQ more pirates. At the rate you’re going either blockades are going up or someone’s orchestrating a coup to get some government up in Somalia.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought of that phrase the moment I read about the execution of the pirates!
