Assocated Press ^ | May 11, 2010 | MANSUR MIROVALEV

Posted on 05/11/2010 2:08:46 PM PDT by libstripper

Following high level complaints about "imperfections" in international law, Russia announced Tuesday that captured Somali pirates "have all died."

Looks like the Ruskies have a better idea of how to enforce laws against piracy than the Illegal and his stooges. Of course, since he pirated the Presidency, it's easy to see why the Illegal sympathizes with his co-religioniss, the Muslim pirates of Somalia.

Respect for the Russians. The pirates must have had an “accident”.

I love how they ‘freed’ them. most likely without food or water left then in a rubber raft miles from shore.

those poor yoots who attacked the Rsssian ship found it hard to row 300 miles back to shore with no water.
No navaids.
And no oars.

Maybe the Muslim pirates found out about Jew Fish and tried to suicide bomb them.

I suspect that they failed to free their boat too.

I thought the report of their release was suspicious.

Now it is more clear — the Ruskies didn’t want to be holding them as their demises ensued.

We haven’t decided if they committed suicide or died trying to escape.

Russia doesn’t get too worked up about niceties like international law. On the other hand, I imagine the word has gotten out to the pirate community, avoid Russian ships at all costs.

I was watching the "Deadliest Warrior" series on Spike. They had Spetnatz vs. the IRA. This old Spetnatz guy ran a gauntlet with a pistol shooting targets as he moved through the doors. The moderator asked him "How did it go?" He replied-cold as ice- "They are all dead".

They may have been miles from shore, but they probably could not locate a rubber raft either.

FTA:

The official told Russian news agencies the pirates' boat disappeared from Russian radar about an hour after their release.

"They could not reach the coast and, apparently, have all died," the official said.

Sounds like the Russkies dropped them off far from the coast with no means of getting ashore. Death by dehydration? I'd hate to think what they'd do to a CO in the US Navy if he did that....

The Russians don’t mess around. Remember when a Russian ambassador was held hostage in Lebanon in ‘85? The Russians launched counter measures and captured family members of the assailants, sending them family body parts by messenger. No more Russians were ever taken hostage.

Has anybody but me noticed the sign in this photo of this “pirate” in Mombassa, Kenya? The name on the sign is PATRIE.
If you rearrange the letters in the word PATRIE you can spell PIRATE with no letters left over. I’m just sayin’

You forgot the part where they pricked a small hole in the bottom of the raft just for the sport of it.
