How often do you cheer for North Korea?

While it's a shame three sailors were injured retaking their own ship, it's nice to see the pirates losing.

And it's particularly interesting to see the US warships coming to the aid of a North Korean vessel.

Crew wins deadly pirate battle off Somalia

(CNN) -- The crew members of a North Korean freighter regained control of their ship from pirates who hijacked the vessel off Somalia, but not without a deadly fight, the U.S. Navy reported Tuesday.

When the battle aboard the Dai Hong Dan was over, two pirates were dead and five were captured, the Navy said.

Three wounded crew members from the cargo ship were being treated aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS James E. Williams.


I'm surprised there isn't more media attention to the crime of old fashioned piracy. Aside from the random episode CSI Miami, of course.
