Yup. Koreans don't believe in getting mad...just getting even... and killing pirates is just the right thing to do.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Last line of the article:

"In one of the most controversial rescues, Russian marines freed 23 crew barricaded on board a Russian tanker, the Moscow University. The pirates were later found dead and adrift in a small boat."

Russians are harsh. And they save the money it would take to take care of these people while awaiting trial, then in jail after!

Hmmm 54 cents expending a 9 mm bullet verses several million dollars of taxpayers money for a trial where the pirates will get a slap on the wrist.

Anyone care to guess which I would choose?

What about the Navy seals, a couple of years ago? Three shots rang out from a pitching and rolling row boat. Three terrorist head exploded simultaneously in another pitching an rolling boat. I call it 14 cent justice.

IMHO the Russians got the US, and the Koreans beat. It cost them $0.00! In fact, they could probably make a buck or two.

Let's see; take away their guns ($20 each), take away their ammo ($0.14/round), take away their motor ($200.00), take away their electronics($5), put them back in their boat, bid them adieu...

No unnecessary violence, no trial, no extra inconvenience.

Let the pirates, and whomever finds their shriveled carcases, think long and hard about taking another Russian boat hostage...

Mongolian merchant marine?

Whoa, wait a minute - look at this, from the report above:

The military said Friday's rescue followed a brief gunbattle Tuesday, when the destroyer encountered pirates who had apparently left the South Korean freighter to try to seize a nearby Mongolian vessel

Ahem, Mongolia ain't near no water, in fact it's as landlocked as can be. Something's fishy about this story if you ask me. Plus, the last time Mongols tried using boats it was a complete disaster. Just ask this guy.
