A VICE film about Somali pirates:

I didn’t watch it yet, but when I skipped through it I saw some sweet beat up AK-47s so I figured how bad can it be?

VICE-LogoPirates gonna pirate.  Let me know how it is if you watch it.

Pretty crazy stuff… Not only did they land a helicopter on the top of containers on the ship, but they went in and took the pirates alive and confiscated their weapons. Badass!

One of the scariest parts of the video was at 1:50 the lead guy looks in the shattered window and decides it safe and continues on.  Then a few seconds later, the rest of his team has their guns pointed in there yelling at a pirate to get out.  Pretty tense when you have armed pirates sneaking around on there armed to the teeth.


NAIROBI, Kenya (March 24) — Private security guards shot and killed a Somali pirate during an attack on a merchant ship off the coast of East Africa in what is believed to be the first such killing by armed contractors.

ARRRRRRRRRGH… looks like it be Davy Jones locker for him then.

International navies have killed about a dozen pirates over the past year, said Harbour. Hundreds more are believed to have died at sea, either by drowning or through dehydration when their water and fuel runs out, said Alan Cole, who heads the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime’s anti-piracy initiative.

Interesting that no pirates were killed by contractors before yesterday!  I thought they got in firefights and took casualties all the time.

Don’t worry, Keira Knightly is safe.

As far as I’m concerned, if you terrorize ship crews and extort money for a living, the world is better off without you.

Pros: You don’t have to jump through hoops to get Class 3 weapons.  Lots of big game to hunt.  The weather.

Cons: Everything else.
