Avast Ye, Scurvy Dogs! There Be Racism And Piracy Afoot — Oh, And Fatal Head Wounds. Don’t Forget Those.

Nothing against the U.S. Navy, which did a phenomenal job of freeing a captured US captain and greasing three pirates, but you have to give credit where credit is due: The Russians did an even better job of handling Somalia’s pirates:

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.

You want to put a stop to Somali piracy? Kill these pirates on sight, sink their boats, and summarily hang any of them you capture. Of course, shooting them at point blank range seems to work just fine, too. Of course, that may result in the most terrible retaliation that most Westerners can imagine: They may play the race card:

The (Somali Pirate) spokesman condemned the action of the Russian navy “our men never hurt their hostages, we simply want foreign ships to stop overfishing in our waters, if they are not happy to respect our-fishermen and their livelihood, we have no choice but to take hostage to compensate for the losses,” he cited.

“We condemn the action of the Russians, it’s driven by racism and hate for black people and Africa, it’s the face of the new Russia. In future, if we capture Russians they will meet the same fate as those they executed,” he added.

Welcome to the 21st century, where even pirates claim that they’re being shot while in the midst of their piracy because they’re black.
