This one from the Ukraine, there's a whole bunch of toys from Ivan. Trouble is, Ivan wants 'em back


That one from Iran, I dunno, but it's apparently not healthy to try to find out...

They got balls, that's for sure.

Still, they picked a REALLY bad era to pull this shit in. Post 9/11, economic recessions and half a dozen ready-made wars make everyone's trigger fingers itchy.

Wait...they get bonus points for doing this around International Talk Like A Pirate Day. :P

/joking

Hopefully the hostages are remembered before the guns start.

What hostages are those? On the freighter with the T-72s, they're already counted as dead according to Ivan's counterterrorism doctrine. Or, put another way, the lives of the crew, while certainly important, are not as important as ensuring that nothing flying a Russian or Ukrainian flag ever gets fucked with again - particularly not when it's carrying Russian arms shipments. Story, don't know if it's true or not: supposedly, Hezbollah or another of those assholes decided to snatch up a hostage from the Soviet Embassy in Beirut in the mid 1980s. Spetznaz snatched up one son each from the households of five or six of the local honchos known to support Hezbollah, then sent the honchos their sons left ear in a box... according to the story, after the hostage was released unharmed, it was very safe to be in Beirut if you were a Russian

On the Iranian freighter with the crates o' nasty, it'll be even simpler: the crew will live or die gloriously as martyrs for Islam, as Allah wills. I don't think they're that high a priority for the Islamic Revolutionary Government of Iran. (Although, I would rather admire to learn whether those crates really are holding something nasty, or if the Somali assholes just stumbled into a seagoing hazardous waste spill, or what...)
