Kicking Pirates since the N. Koreans aren't available.


Numerous people have hit me with articles about the S. Korean Navy/Marine Corps retaking a hijacked ship off the coast of Africa.

My take on this?

The N. Koreans weren't available so the Pirates were a poor second choice.

If you believe anything believe this.  The S. Korean Marine Corps, Navy, Army, Air Force, their Leadership and its people all want to taste N. Korean blood after the atrocities of a few weeks ago.

The pirates just nutted up and attacked the wrong ship.

This got beyond interesting.  It got deadly for some misguided idiotic little boys that picked the wrong target because they didn't have a clue when it came to the political power of the people when they're sufficiently enraged. 

The S. Korean government had no choice but to act forcefully.  Another black eye and they would have been forced out of power.

  1. Solomon,

    There have been four strikes against Somali pirates in the Arabian Sea between the 18th and the 22nd. I posted my observations in a thread started by Chuck Hill at CGBlog:

  3. Anti-piracy has become a whole new breed of naval warfare for decades to come.
