"The district commissioner of the central Mudug region said talks went on all day Saturday, with clan elders from his area talking by satellite telephone and through a translator with Americans, but collapsed late Saturday night.
"The negotiations between the elders and American officials have broken down. The reason is American officials wanted to arrest the pirates in Puntland and elders refused the arrest of the pirates," said the commissioner, Abdi Aziz Aw Yusuf. He said he organized initial contacts between the elders and the Americans."

200 American hostages, or just Somalians? My previous post was just in jest, but I do think we need to do something because that country is really just a free for all at this point and we can't just continue to put our ships at risk.

Not American, not Somali, but hostages from many other countries that were taken in ship hijackings. These hijackings have been going on a couple of years, and many hostages have been taken. This was the first time they had taken an American ship, but there are hostages from many European countries currently in Somalia.

Pentagon just gave a briefing about the details:

The bainbridge had hooked a tow line to the vessel phillips was on and was towing it.

we had snipers lined up across the tail of the Bainbridge.

They decided Phillips life was in imminent danger as an AK was drawn to his back.

The vessel was about 25 meters behind the Bainbridge.

Two of the pirates were exposed when the order was given to take them out.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

he never did say how the other two were shot, could we see through the vessel ?

Or seeing that they're Stupid. After the first two were shot , the other two ran up to stick their heads out to see what was goin on ?

this was a completely enclosed vessel with a hatch like a submarine.

No food, no water, surrounded by 500 million dollar plus boats - and seriously, you wonder about where your money goes, whether you are getting anything back for your dollar, and then, boom!, all of a sudden, your tax payer dollars are suddenly justified in a reticent act of high seas piracy! At least it makes the economy forget that it's in the shitter and that rather than have a comprehensive national health care plan, we have the ability to drift side by side with an inflatable tube with boats that cost roughly a bizillion time more for weeks on end.

Like the song says, freedom costs a buck o' five...and that "o'five" could probably go to fund public education or health care for the rest of your lives, but **** that...it's better to spend that "o'five" on shit that counts - destroyers and submarine SEAL teams that can shoot four starving, sea sick, dehydrated teenage "pirates" in the name of international maritime commerce.

In a daring high-seas rescue, U.S. Navy SEAL snipers killed three Somali pirates and freed the American sea captain who had offered himself as a hostage to save his crew.

The operation was a victory for the world's most powerful military but angry pirates vowed Monday to retaliate.

Those threats raised fears for the safety of some 230 foreign sailors still held hostage in more than a dozen ships anchored off the coast of lawless Somalia.

"From now on, if we capture foreign ships and their respective countries try to attack us, we will kill them (the hostages)," Jamac Habeb, a 30-year-old pirate, told the Associated Press from one of Somalia's piracy hubs, Eyl. "(U.S. forces have) become our No. 1 enemy."

You should read the articles you actually link. This article for example includes this:

At issue in Sunday's incident is the manner in which the US navy says the Chinese vessels went beyond the usual boundaries in shadowing and harassing the Impeccable, the BBC's Kevin Connolly notes.

This may be an example of China testing the mettle of a new US administration, just as it did when it impounded a US reconnaissance aircraft immediately after George W Bush took office, he says.

It held the crew of the plane, which was in collision with a Chinese fighter jet, for 11 days, causing a serious diplomatic row between the two countries.

Sure, that's the obvious part, that wasn't my argument at all, though. If the Chinese navy harasses another unarmed US Navy vessel in the future, they, in fact, would have NOT gotten the memo. China doesn't want a war, but they will sure as fuck posture while completely disregarding international waters law.

The Pentagon reported three other naval incidents involving China last week:


On Wednesday, a Chinese Bureau of Fisheries Patrol vessel used a high-intensity spotlight to illuminate the ocean surveillance ship USNS Victorious in the Yellow Sea and, the next day, a Chinese Y-12 maritime surveillance aircraft conducted 12 fly-bys of Victorious
On Thursday, a Chinese frigate approached Impeccable without warning and crossed its bow at a close range of approximately 100m (yards), after which a Y-12 aircraft conducted 11 fly-bys. The frigate later crossed the US ship's bow again
On Saturday, a Chinese intelligence collection ship challenged Impeccable over bridge-to-bridge radio, calling her operations illegal and directing her to leave the area or "suffer the consequences".

So, that's all good? I agree, that's not really messing with Navy. I mean, they don't dare open fire on them, right?

One of the reasons they don't want a conflict is because they know the strength of our navy.

Regarding consequences, I would be surprised if we haven't lodged a formal complaint with the Chinese over this incident. No one was hurt and no damage was done, so let diplomacy work. And, again, we are to begin escorting these vessels with destroyers, so I doubt they will do so again anyway.

They probably fuck with our armed vessels as well. I know the Soviets did because I've seen it. My ship was conducting an UNREP (underway replenishment) with one of the carriers (the Nimitz, IIRC) in the Med when a Russian cruiser stopped right in front of us. During an UNREP the ships are connected by lines for transferring supplies and thus have very limited manuevering capability. So we called an emergency break-away and the carrier scrambled it's ready fighters. The Russian ship moved away rather quickly after that. It was certainly exciting and a bit scary while it was happening, but nothing came of it.

Wouldn't surprise me if we do the same shit to them. This kind of gamesmanship has been going on forever.
