Don't take my ship !!
« on: April 12, 2009, 04:57:55 PM »
So glad to hear that the American Captain Of the ship Alabama, is safe  !! Just caught it now on the news, but it must have happenned a couple of hours ago. Three pirates killed..

It was his second attempt to jump off the lifeboat, and this time it worked. He's quite the guy, I am happy for him and his family.

Glad the captain made it out safely.  But I do worry about the consequences of the US killing three of the pirates.  At some point another American will be held and I wonder now if they will be killed immediately in revenge.  Or whether the pirates will now start targeting American ships.

I am so glad the captain made it out safely.  I did read a few minutes ago that the pirates have sworn revenge.

I heard on the radio the 4th pirate, the one on the US ship, is like some kid...not even 21.  So what are they going to do with him?  Bring him back here?

Boy that kid gonna have a story to tell.

Yeah, but possibly even more wreckless with dangerous weapons than an adult would be.

I wish some news organization would tell the story of the CREW who took the ship back from the pirates.  Those guys are the heroes.  They didn't sit around waiting to be rescued, they took action.  Who knows what the ending would have been had they sat around and waited.
