NYTimes.com reported United States Navy personnel rescued the captain of an American cargo ship on Sunday by killing three Somali pirates who had been holding him hostage for four days, government and shipping officials said.
Congratulations to the US Navy. One pirate is in custody. He should immediately be given a choice: would he rather hang from the yardarm, or walk the plank. In either case, his death should be filmed, and copies delivered to others in the pirate's base on land.
