Captain rescued; pirates dead

You can't make this stuff up.

In my little brain, I think of pirate stories as something from a distant past, something that disappeared along with scurvy.... but these pirates are real and nasty. The ending of this adventure is right out of Hollywood though, involving snipers with night vision scopes dropping three armed pirates in their tracks.

Apparently it doesn't end here, as Somali pirates vow retaliation.

Every country will be treated the way it treats us. In the future, America will be the one mourning and crying.

It's crazy, isn't it?

I know, I used to preface the word pirate with internet, but lately it's been with Somali.

Yep, scary stuff. What a story. This morning Regis on his show said "seals 3, pirates 0".

We were always semi-cautious about pirates when I grew up boating on the west coast.

It's totally surreal. What's next? Fat men from space?
