International law does not allow us to prosecute them, you say? Oh, no problem. We’ll just take them back out to sea and release them back into their boat. And put a bullet into each of their heads. How terrible of you, John, you ask? When U.S. troops shot pirates most of the country cheered. Obama showed his chops and earned praise for imaginary leadership. I don’t know if this will be a deterrent to other pirates, but I can guarantee you that these pirates corpses will not be pirating any time soon. Three cheers for Russia.
From Right Wing News:
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.
