MOSCOW, Russia — Following high level complaints about "imperfections" in international law, Russia announced Tuesday that captured Somali pirates "have all died." A Russian official claimed that 10 pirates seized by Russian special forces aboard an oil tanker last week were quickly freed but then died on their way back to the Somali coast.

On there way back home, their boat experienced a large, explosive leak and quickly sank.

freed but then died on their way back to the Somali coast

In short, they couldn't swim. No mention of a boat being provided.

Ok then. That's their story, and they are sticking to it. Chortle!

Any self respecting pirate should be able to swim 300 miles. *sigh*

New change made in the Somali Pirates rule book:

“All ships, except Russian, are subject to being pirated”

Dead pirates cannot commit piracy. However the Russians did it....you can be sure the Somali’s will think twice before pirating another Russian ship

“We’ll have to do what our forefathers did when they met the pirates” until the international community comes up with a legal way of prosecuting them, Dmitry Medvedev said on the day the ship was stormed.

Perhaps they were given an opportunity to walk the 500 miles home. Apparently the 4 meter plank didn’t get them very far.

The Russians have come up with a successful pirate reform program. I’m guessing the recidivism rate isn’t real high.

Perhaps the Russians gave them phones to call friends, family and fellow pirates, and instructed them to say, “hey fellow pirates, this Putin guy says we no attack Russian ships or we all get radiation poisoning. This Putin says instead we attack ships of that metrosexual Kenyan POS Obama. Although I do not know what POS stand for, we attack his ships. They say his ships come with red, white, blue flag. But stay away from ship with hammer and sickle, and we no get dead. Allah Akbar.”

But of course, the Obama administration will wonder why no more Russian ships get attacked.

In the absence of international law, I would be perfectly comfortable relieving the pirates of all stolen goods and then leaving them in the exact location found. If they boarded from a rowboat and are located 300 miles from land, so be it. If their boarding craft was abandoned once they seized a vessel, so be it. In the absence of man-made law, “natural law” will have to suffice: the legal analog of “natural consequences” used to teach young children. In that regard, “chumming” the water might seem a bit “unnatural”.
