PostSubject: Pirates rearm ships, vow to kill more captives   Fri Feb 25, 2011 6:30 am

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

(CBS/AP) NAIROBI, Kenya - Pirates in
Somalia said Wednesday they are ferrying ammunition and men to the 30
hijacked vessels still under their control, and they threatened to kill
more captives following the violent end to a hostage standoff that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].The U.S. military said that 15 pirates detained after the Americans were slain Tuesday [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].The
military, FBI and Justice Department are working on the next steps for
those pirates, said Bob Prucha, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command in
Florida. The Somalis are currently being held on the aircraft carrier
USS Enterprise, which is in the waters off East Africa.A
pirate aboard the hijacked yacht Quest on Tuesday fired a
rocket-propelled grenade at a U.S. warship that had responded to last
Friday's hijacking. Then gunfire broke out aboard the yacht. When Navy
special forces reached the Quest, they found the four American hostages
had been shot and killed.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]The
FBI is investigating the killings of Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle of
Seattle, Washington, and Jean and Scott Adam of Marina del Rey, near Los
Angeles, who had made their home aboard their 58-foot yacht Quest since
December 2004.The victims knew of the dangers of the high seas, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]."They
were experienced sailors and they were well aware of the dangers," said
Robert K. Johnston, Scott Adam's former seminary teacher and longtime
friend. "They had joined a flotilla coming from Bangkok to Sri Lanka.
They took precautions, even though they were adventurers. So we prayed
for them, because we knew this was the key piece of territory where they
were moving from Mumbai through the Red Sea. ... But there was no
reason to think this was a particularly crucial moment when they wrote
that e-mail."The Adams handed out Bibles around the world,
but a pirate who gave his name only as Hassan told The Associated Press
on Wednesday that played no factor. He said the pirates reacted
violently after the U.S. forces blocked the yacht's path."We
had plans to either take the hostages to the inland mountains or to
move onto other hijacked ships because we knew that the U.S. Navy was
serious about carrying out a rescue operation," Hassan said. "The
hostages pleaded with us not to harm them or take them to dangerous
places. They cried when we captured them ... and asked us to release
them because they were too old and couldn't endure captivity."The
killings came less than a week after a Somali pirate was sentenced to
more than 33 years in prison by a New York court for the 2009 hijacking
of the Maersk Alabama. That hijacking ended when Navy sharpshooters
killed two pirates holding the ship's American captain.Pirates
reacted angrily to the sentencing and have since vowed that they will
kill hostages before being captured during military raids and being sent
to face trial.Pirates once were believed to be
disgruntled and financially motivated Somali fishermen angry that
international trawlers were illegally fishing Somalia's waters. Now
criminal gangs dominate the piracy trade, and have begun systematically
torturing hostages, including locking them in freezers."What
we're seeing is that because of the business model the pirates have
adopted is so lucrative that you're now getting organized criminal gangs
involved as opposed to fishermen who just decided to have a go at
piracy," said Wing Commander Paddy O'Kennedy, spokesman for the European
Union's anti-piracy force."Criminal gangs are more violent than your average fisherman who's turned to piracy," O'Kennedy said.A
pirate in Somalia who gave his name as Adowe Osman Ali said fellow
"soldiers" had ferried the reinforcements to hijacked ships in their
hands on Wednesday in a bid to deter more hostage rescue attempts. He
said after Tuesday's incident, captains of hijacked ships have been
ordered to tell navies not to approach or hostages would be killed."In
the past, 20 or so soldiers used to guard every ship but now the
numbers are ranging between 60 and 70 soldiers," said Ali, a pirate in
the coastal village of Gara'ad."We are more alert than
anytime before," he said. "In the past, we allowed the foreign navies to
approach us but now we have warned them to not get nearer to us."Piracy
has plagued the shipping industry off East Africa for years, but the
violence used during the attacks — and the money demanded in ransoms —
have increased in recent months. Pirates now hold some 30 ships and more
than 660 hostages.The average ransom now paid to pirates
is in the $5 million range, a huge leap from only three or four years
ago when it was in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, said Roger
Middleton, a piracy expert at the London-based think tank Chatham House.
One ransom paid last year was just shy of $10 million."It's
really gone up, really an enormous amount," Middleton said. "If you
think you can get a $9.5 million ransom, I suppose the logic is that you
try any means possible to get there, and if that means scaring some
crews and owners more, I guess that's what you do," he said, alluding to
the recent reports of torture.Industry experts warned
Wednesday it's too soon to say whether the Americans' deaths will
require a wholesale change in the way the shipping industry operates
along with the militaries patrolling the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean.It's
still not known publicly whether prompted a pirate to fire a
rocket-propelled grenade at a Navy war ship, and it's unclear whether
there was an internal pirate fight or if there had been a hostage escape
attempt."We don't know what happened yesterday so we're
not going to make any knee-jerk decisions," O'Kennedy said. "But our
policy remains the same. Nothing is off the table. All options are open
to us as a military force."Pirates blamed the deaths of the American hostages on the U.S. Navy, saying the pirates felt under attack."We
warned them before that if we are attacked, there would be only dead
bodies," said a man who gave his name as Abdirahman Abdullahi Qabowsade.
"We have been killed and arrested illegally before, so we can't bear
with such attacks anymore. We will respond to any future attacks
aggressively."

One thing for sure, when they threaten to use force and kill more hostages because of our intervention, it is time to go over there and just blow them all away! Then tell the others that if they continue in this manner, the rest of them will be blown away. We may loose a few more hostages but this crap will cease! It is past time and we need to do it now, not next week or next month, The big problem is the goober in the WH that cannot make up his mind about what really needs to be done!! JMHO!!

I agree with you, let's stop being politically correct with regards to these circumstances. What country could possibly fault us for sending a few hundred Navy SEALs over there to erase them from civilization. Stop talking about what could happen or be done---just do it dam it!!

That goober in the WH does not know how to handle a crisis, when it comes to more serious tasks, he folds under the pressure. I'll bet that he walks in a circle in the oval office disoriented. Send the SEALs in you will not need but a couple squads, they are that good.
