A U.S. Navy ship rescued 13 Iranian sailors from pirates in the Arabia Sea, a military spokesman said Friday.
The destroyer USS Kidd responded to calls for help from the Iranian-flagged dhow Al Molai, which had been hijacked by pirates two months ago, Navy Capt. John Kirby said.
A Navy team boarded the ship, took 15 pirates into custody and sent the dhow on its way, Kirby said. A dhow is a type of sailing vessel frequently used for commercial transits in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean.
The Iranian captain thanked the crew of the Kidd for their help, Kirby said.
The Kidd is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer assigned to the USS Stennis carrier strike group.
Earlier this week, Iranian officials warned the United States over the presence of the Stennis in the region. The state-run news agency IRNA quoted Maj. Gen. Ataollah Salehi as saying that Iran was "ready to severely react against any threat" should the Stennis return to the Persian Gulf, where it had been patrolling before moving to the Arabian Sea, according to U.S. officials.

So, pirates had these guys for 2 months, and the US rescues them, not their own military. Fucking clownshoes.

Excellent use of US military resources. You catch more flies with honey, amirite? Five more of these, and the Arab street is on our side.

R Lee Ermey supports Ron Paul, what do you think of those apples?



EDIT: eh... probably. I would say probably. I read that in a Youtube comment section. It's not yielding too much fruit in the google department.
