Pirates Hijack Russian Ship, Forgetting Pics of Shirtless Putin

The pirates who hijacked a Russian oil tanker off the coast of Yemen aren't very bright. Fortunately, they probably won't be around long enough to pass the dumb gene to future generations.

A Russian warship, powered by Vladimir Putin's rage, is steaming toward the captured tanker. In addition to pissing off a buff former KGB official, the pirates are sitting on a cargo worth an estimated $52 million.

I doubt that Putin plans anything like the surgical sniper strike that the US Navy employed in similar circumstances. Something more along the lines of Davy Jones Lubyanka comes to mind.
