First Lesson for Pirates: How Not to Be Seen


Fox News is reporting that three of the four terrorists pirates who tried to extort booty by hijacking the Maersk Alabama somehow exposed themselves as targets. For that “Darwinian Moment” they each earned a head shot.

OK… How to put this? Ummm… While anyone with an IQ higher than that of a rusty nail already knows the following, let’s just state the obvious…

  • Wherever there is anarchy on the high seas involving the U.S., there will be Navy Seals. Don’t ask how they got there.
  • All special forces are trained to kill at ranges extending to 1,000 yards. A 30-yard shot is worthy of a bib.
  • But the most important, worthless, and asinine lesson that pirates (aka terrorists) need to understand is the “First Lesson of Not Being Seen” – not to stand up…

Perhaps Monty Python can help here…
