The Effects of Piracy

Eagle One reports on how the piracy off the coast of Somalia is threatening to end food shipments. He also makes some typically sensible proposals for
dealing with the situation.

Here is a proven solution....

Coastiecopters Save Fishermen In Bering Sea

A particularly challenging rescue...

Great video from Popular Mechanics, with really lukewarm narration here.

VIKINGS VERSUS PIRATES!!!

With the UN having finally declared pirate season open, the Swedes are sending 2 Goteberg class corvettes (and, presumably a tender) to go a'viking in puntland.

Assuming the ROE are not absolutely retarded, I'm betting on the Vikings.



UPDATE: Galhran ( who has been blogging up a storm lately) beat me to this and has a more in depth analysis. (His commenter's beat me to the obvious as well.  )

Navy Contemplating Withdrawal

Via Yankee Sailor, the US  fleet on station off Myanmar Burma are on the verge of giving up and leaving as the evil murderous Junta will not allow any save a trickle of aid through....Anybody the aid might have saved at this point is likely dead already.
