Latest news out of Mogadishu, Somalia is that a body of what is believed to be one of the drowned pirates has washed ashore in a small village with $153,000 in a plastic bag in his pocket. This has not yet been verified by any authority.

Question: How can a person squeeze $153,000 into one's pocket? Large bills would be marked and small one's would require more than a small bag!!!

Even if it was all in $100's that is still 1530 pieces of paper. Maybe he was wearing one of those big pirate coats like Blackbeard had. They had big pockets.

Blackbeard also sacrificed several ships by deliberately running them aground (including his own-the largest and best of the lot),
offloaded the cargos to smaller sloops,marooned the bulk of his crew and abandoned his fellow pirate captain (Maj. Stede Bonnet)!Blackbeard did do ,quite ruthlessly,well!

Yes indeed, his coat had very deep pockets! I do not believe these Somali pirates are any different!

Pirates will be pirates!

I might get in trouble, but I have absolutely no sympathy for any of them. I hope we can sink more of their ships and I hope the message will get through to all of them.

Note to self- a bag of money does not make a good flotation device.

Anchors Aweigh! Nothing like seeing an Aegis-class guided missile cruiser approach your pirate skiff with a "go ahead, make my day" attitude in the Navy crew's minds.

Nine More Apprehended! 16 pirates in two days. All of them arrested by the same ship - USS Vella Gulf.
