A Russian warship off the coast of west Africa has found the missing cargo ship Arctic Sea and rescued its crew.

Glad to see the crew safe and well.

Kudos to the Russians.

Good news.

It will be interesting to see what Russia does now.

My guess is the penalties will far outweigh the crime and it's easy to think that if pirates are involved, their home port will be a smoking pile before long.

If that happens, the pirate biz will slow down for a bit, but they'll start up again.

Although Russian ships will probably be left alone and only countries that are PC oriented will have their ships taken....

It will be very interesting to see what really happened. There is still quite a few questions that need to be answered.

If my little scenario noted above does take place, I foresee a run on ship-sized Russian flags....
