Piracy off the Somali coast is estimated to be costing the shipping industry nearly $7bn (£4.4bn). Along with the growing terrorist threat, it is one of the main reasons David Cameron has convened this week's Somalia conference in London. Over 100 seafarers and several ships are currently held for ransom in often atrocious conditions. Frank Gardner has become the first British journalist to be allowed aboard an Australian maritime patrol aircraft, as it flew a counter-piracy mission over the Somali Basin.
Fighting Somali Pirates
Face to face with a Somali pirates
This private security force does it right! o No screwing around with "waiting to be fired upon". o No ACLU - types looking over your shoulder. o No lame snivel rights complaint restrictions. o Just get the job done - Turn the boat and the occupants into Swiss cheese! Listen to the voices carefully. At the beginning of the video, a voice say something about "warning shots" and then opens up full-auto on the pirates boat. Now THAT'S how it should be done!!! Notice that after firing on the attack boat, it falls behind the ship & remains [literally] "Dead in the water"! Near the end of the video, when it looks like they're firing at the horizon; they are actually sending some "lead kisses" to the Somali mother-ship. The security force doesn't expect the bullets to cause any damage at that distance - just saying "Hi !". Bear in mind that Somalis often rape, mutilate [cut off an arm or leg with machetes] or kill captives. They give animals a bad name.
On board security team engage Somali Pirates. Does this conform to the Rules of Engagement; is it excessive or the way Maritime Security Companies should operate? Have your say.
This video is property of NATO TV. The Danish warship HDMS Absalon has freed 12 hostages and taken on board 16 suspected pirates off the coast of Somalia. It is a successful end to their six-month deployment under NATO's Operation Ocean Shield. But Denmark now faces a dilemma. Unless a country in the region can be persuaded to take them ashore and prosecute them, the suspects will have to be set free again in Somalia. See more at www.ilstv.com

RUSSIAN NAVY CAPTURES SOMALI PIRATES How about that - The Russians captured the Pirates, tied them up, put them on the boats, then set them all on fire - puff no more Pirates! This video shows Russian Navy commandos on a Somalian pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker. The Euro Union navy that patrols these waters would not interfere because they feared there could be casualties. All explanations are in Russian with a single exception of when a wounded pirate says something in English and the Russian soldier says "This is not a fishing boat". All conversations between the commandos are in Russian. If you don't understand Russian, the pictures speak for themselves. The soldiers freed their compatriots and the tanker. The Russian Navy Commandos moved the pirates back to their own (pirate) ship, searched the pirate ship for weapons and explosives and then they left the ship and exploded it with all remaining pirates hand-cuffed to it. The commandos sank the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings, lawyers etc. That is, they used the anti-piracy laws of the 18th and 19th centuries where the captain of the rescuing ship has the right to decide what to do with the pirates. Usually, they were hanged. I would think from now on, Russian ships will not be targets for Somali pirates.

American threatened by pirates following Jessica Buchanan's Navy SEAL rescue. For more, click here: abcnews.go.com
Navy SEAL Team 6 rescues Jessica Buchanan and Danish hostage Poul Hagen from Somali Pirates. The special forces team that swept into Somalia last night to rescue two aid workers was the elite military group called SEAL Team 6. Officially, the team's name is classified and not available to the public, technically there is no Team 6. The Tier-One counter terrorism force similar to the Army's elusive Delta group, Team 6's missions rarely make it to paper much less the newspaper. Of course, all that changed following the May 2 raid at Osama bin Laden's compound when Team 6 became front page news. The members of Team 6 are all black operatives. They exist outside military protocol, engage in operations at the highest level of classification and often outside the boundaries of international law. The development of SEAL Team 6 was in response to the 1980 rescue attempt of American hostages held in Iran after the US Embassy takeover by the Iranian government regime.
"US Navy SEALs parachuted into Somalia under cover of darkness early Wednesday and crept up to an outdoor camp where an American woman and Danish man were being held hostage. Soon, nine kidnappers were dead and both hostages were freed. President Barack Obama authorized the mission by SEAL Team 6 two days earlier, deploying the same unit that killed Osama bin Laden last year...".* Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks. *www.huffingtonpost.com Subscribe to The Young Turks: bit.ly Find out how to watch The Young Turks on Current by clicking here: www.current.com The Largest Online New Show in the World.

UK links to al Shabaab grow as global conference looms To see more go to www.youtube.com Follow us on Facebook (goo.gl or Twitter (www.twitter.com As Somali piracy refuses to go away, why does the international community seem powerless to stop it? Despite occasional shows of strength, local Somali fishermen believe that maybe they don't really want to. "If they were serious about tackling piracy they would have solved it ages ago", argues the Somali coastguard. For them it is obvious: the Western ships have reasons other than pirates for wanting to patrol these waters. They believe the Somali seas have become a playground for Western navies to test arms, protect illegal fishery or just polish up their international image. A predominance of large warships seem to support their claims. "These vessels are enormous; we have small maneuverable boats, we can get away fast", one pirate tells us. July 2011
The marine/sailor boarding party was apparently ambushed, with the pirates opening up on the RHIBs at close range..the firefight resulted in two somali pirates killed, 16 captured and 16 Iranian sailors being freed. No info about casualties on our side, assumed none wounded.
