Bravo Zulu and say hello to Davy Jones for me

...pirate scum.

It turns out no Decatur or Enterprise were involved but the spirit of Decatur (and Bainbridge) lives on.

Bravo Zulu to the SEAL team members who went in harms way and sweet justice that they sent 3 of 4 pirates to Davy Jone's locker.

MOMBASA, Kenya — An American ship captain was freed unharmed Sunday and three of his captors were killed in a daring rescue by U.S. Navy Seals that ended a five-day standoff between the world's most powerful Navy and Somali pirates in a lifeboat far off the Horn of Africa.


I'll settle for Bainbridge's name being linked to this. Yeah, that'll do pig. That'll do.

It's equally apropos and chock full of historic and poetic justice for dealing with pirates.
