    Stop Pirating! or we will detain and release you!

    Honestly, is this the big "crackdown" the international community has been gearing up for? I get it, canada has no jurisdiction in this case but why spend gazzilions of dollars for several ships and two helos if we are just gonna play catch and release? Why not detain the pirates until they can be handed over to the country whose ship was attacked? The pirates will quickly learn to not be afraid of arrest, and will probably not bother running or resisting the warships.

    NATO forces boarded the skiff, where they found a rocket-propelled grenade, and interrogated, disarmed and released the pirates.
    The FBI (and SEAL snipers) weren't on those ships, I reckon.

    The pirates cannot be prosecuted under Canadian law because they did not attack Canadian citizens or interests and the crime was not committed on Canadian territory.
    But the b'tards can be prosecuted under international law. One would think the proper place for pirates is hanging on the end of a rope.

    Piracy is apparently in Canada's best interest, then.

    I thought "catch and release" only pertained to fishing???

    The US Navy version would be to catch them, and release them about 100 miles off shore to float about in shark infested waters.

    Good idea. Those warning shots should've been though the engine block. Then they could be released once all forms of communications had "accidentally" fallen overboard.

    The U.N. needs to immediately send the Somalians a strongly worded memo.

    Why waste ammunition with a warning shot. Your a pirate the only shot should be a AGM from the helicopter. Piracy problem solved, boat at the bottom of the sea and the pirates feeding the fish.

    Ah, the UN. Bark like a tiny dog, bite nonexistent. I've been listening to Somalia being referred to as a failed state, but even interventionist-happy UN officials don't want to touch it with a 10 mile pole.

    As for this instance, I agree that the pirates should have been handed over to the country who's ship was attacked. The wrong message was definitely sent by scolding them and sending them back out.

    Did they tag him before release.

    Seriously, it really shows how messed up we are

    These people will savagely kill the next US sailor they will catch, and we do nothing !!!
    Run over the boat, everything gets chopped by the props "Sorry, they did a wrong turn, we couldn't avoid it"

    That's the news that really got me POed this morning !!!!!

    I agree that the pirates should have been released but in my version, they would have been released as tiny bits of fish food.

    Good one !!! Funny.

    Unfortunately that's what will probably happen. A strongly worded memo ,sent to illiterates ! lol.
    All of the little Dictator run countries that act piratish (new word) themselves are the gang that runs the U.N., that's why the UN is useless at best, often worse.
    Being sent on a UN mission is a soldiers worst nightmare.

    Why are we playing with these thugs?
