Somali pirates killed - Good riddance!

As I thought... the Americans would launch a Special Ops to rescue the American captain captured by the somali pirates...

Well... the GOOD NEWS... the SOFs (Special Ops Forces) killed 3 somali pirates & captured 1 (why not kill him as well?) AND rescued Captain Richard Phillips.

Good riddance!

Stop dumping nuclear waste along the coast of Somalia and stealing their fishing industry and you wouldn't have to worry about Pirates. Though I'm sure most American's are totally clueless about that and believe their news media telling them that all the 'pirates' are evil.

Saved one "American" life at the cost of 3 poor Africans... makes you wonder.

As usual the Americans are “Penny Wise, Pound Foolish.” They refuse to pay small ransom but ready to lose , in future, a whole ship and it's crew to the pirates. Aren’t they selfish too? They saved one of their own and forget there are 260 captives at the hands of the pirates right now. What is it to the Americans to pay $2 million and look for a lasting solution that will eradicate the pirates menace once and for all?

Anyway that is how Americans work , tomorrow, when they fall in the trap of the pirates they will be slain not because they refused to pay ransom but because of revenge. Do you know what the Americans will do then? They will boom poor villagers at Somali coast line and term them terrorist

Anon: LOL... I still say good riddance. And does the pirate qualify for 7 virgins?

As for the "African" lives... I would trade 10 somali pirates lives for 1 Kenyan life. In a heartbeat!

The somalis have elevated piracy to a business. Well, they need to be bombed back to the stone age!

Ending Somali piracy: few options for US forces

NAIROBI, Kenya – Stamping out Somalia's piracy scourge using U.S. warships or military force will be virtually impossible, according to maritime experts who said Tuesday the real problems lie ashore in the ashes of Somalia's failed state.

Fixing those problems could take decades, and the U.S. already tried intervening — 17 years ago in a failed humanitarian mission that ended with helicopters shot down and dead US soldiers dragged through Mogadishu's sand-swept streets.

"It's understandable to find people yelling at their televisions, saying 'shoot them all or stop them,'" Graeme Gibbon-Brooks, managing director of Dryad Maritime Intelligence Service in Britain, said of the pirates. "You have the might of international navies, and you can't end this?"

But sending in more warships is like "sticking a Band-Aid on a gunshot wound," he said. "The fact is, what you see at sea is a manifestation of the problems ashore in Somalia."......http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/piracy_few_option
