This is a good news, bad news story. First the good news.
The Royal Marines liberated the 56,000-ton bulk carrier Montecristo, which was hijacked on Monday off the coast of Somalia.
Awesome. They should be proud. Now the bad news.
The 11 Somali pirates on board surrendered without a fight and were arrested. No shots were fired during the raid.
What are they going to get? A smack upon the bottom and a stern warning not to do it again? Maybe if they got shot and fed to the sharks, fewer people would become pirates.
