Ship Recovered, But Was Pirate Culture Properly Respected?

In response to this article about an 'unconfirmed' report of the U.S. crew of the Maersk Alabama "re-taking" the seized Danish-owned vessel from pirates in the Indian Ocean, Roy Eappen (Dr. Roy) offers a nudge and a wink to compassionate multi-cultural relativism, and wonders if the crew was respectful to the cultural sensitivities of the global Pirate community.

It seems that the crew of a pirated ship has fought back. wonder if there was a sword fight. Too bad the pirates weren't forced to walk the plank. It would be respecting the pirate culture in this multicultural world. Of course all cultures are good and equal. perhaps the crew should have respected the pirate culture and stayed quiet? lol

Nicely put, Dr. Roy. But we'll have to wait and see. We should be expecting comment from the 'leadership' of the Pirate-American community any time now. No doubt, they're outraged.



This swashbuckler continues. The latest cliff hanger --

NAIROBI -- The captain of a U.S.-flagged, Danish-owned container ship hijacked by pirates in the Indian Ocean is being held hostage on the ship's lifeboat, a crew member on the vessel told CNN on Wednesday.
