Somali Pirates

Post by wendy » Tue February 22nd, 2011, 5:47 pm

Just heard on the news that the Somali pirates have killed their four US hostages. How tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to their families.
This is the REAL face of piracy - not the Johnny Depp version - always has been.

I like Johnny Depp's pirates better. Very sad news.

Thanks Wendy, this is very sad. One of the couple that was killed is local for me, so the local media has been covering it a great deal.
