I wondered what had happened about that hi-jacked ship. The 3 million dollar ranson was dropped by parachute to the pirates aboard the hi-jacked vessel. So, is this where it ends? Surely this doesn't look good, but did they have another option?

I hope the pirates save their money. Their lives will change very soon.


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A new international naval force under American command will soon begin patrols to confront escalating attacks by Somali pirates after more than 100 ships came under siege in the past year, the U.S. Navy said Thursday.




There currently are more than a dozen warships in the vast expanse off the coast of Somalia, from naval giants such as the U.S., Britain and Russia, emerging powers such as China and India and regional forces such as Iran.

The announcement on the new mission — issued by the U.S. 5th Fleet in Bahrain — said more than 20 nations are expected to take part and it will be headed by U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Terence McKnight.



This excercise should get interesting. Not just for the pirates.

Instructions to hijackers:

"Paint a nice big white "X" in a remote area and gather all your fellow pirates together for a big party when we drop the gift on you.

It should be a real blast."

Seriously, paying these vermin will only encourage more of the same. Makes the world safer for one crew, and more dangerous for every other mariner.

It seems five of the pirates drowned on the way back to shore, along with the three survivors losing their share of the ransom money.

It's all about Karma, baby!!!

Sounds like justice to me. My faith in the universe has been restored, if only a little.
