Pirates - Send In The Tarts.
Two pirates were killed - one knifed by a member of the US special forces and another shot - when rescuers boarded the yacht. Thirteen pirates were also captured.
"It's a black day for us and also the Americans, but they lost bigger than us," a pirate using the name Bile Hussein said yesterday.
"If they still want a solution and safety for their citizens in the oceans, let them release our men they arrested."
All parties might care to remember the Battle of Derna where the US Marines cleared out a pirate menace on the shores of Africa.
Pirates - who currently hold 30 ships and more than 660 hostages - typically win a multi-million dollar ransom for releasing their captives. The money is often spent on alcohol, drugs and prostitutes.
Western officials have long worried that money from piracy is making its way into the hands of extremists to fund violence in Somalia
Or we could just send them more prostitutes to spend their money on rather than waste it on extremism. We certainly have more of them spare than we have fighting men.
