I was wondering when someone in the international community would grow a pair when dealing with the Somali pirates, and now it's happened. H/T to Hot Air for the lead and here is the winner of the contest to be the first to deal with pirates in the traditional manner: The South Koreans.
The tepid response to date has been a blot on the character of civilized countries world wide since the inception of the Somali efforts. The hijacked ships should represent nothing more than a training exercise for the elite units accompanying the warships that frequent those waters ranging from the Egyptian Navy up.
Cheers for the ROK marines, and a note to future pirates: the ROKs don't care if you survive or not. The story says 8 pirates dead, and 5 prisoners, no casualties among the crew. Anybody want to make book on weather the prisoners survive the experience?
