Let’s Kick Some Pirate Butt (Sorry not baseball…)

As kind of an update to my post of September 9th (and also an “I told you so”), three US Navy warships are surrounding a hijacked Ukrainian merchant ship that has tons of vintage Soviet arms on it that Ukraine sold to Kenya.

While it’s hard to tell how this will end, the Navy has enough firepower in the area to do just about anything they want.

I hope the civilian sailors (hostages, really) get away safely so that we can set an example of what happens to pirates these days.
