Going on the Account: Arr, Think Ye Used Enough Powder There, Butch…?

The latest from the Indian Ocean:  In response to merchant ships now setting up safe rooms to wait out pirates the way the Maersk Alabama did, pirates are now boarding with explosives, presumably to bypass these defenses.

 

And for some reason, that scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid comes to mind…

 

So of course, if life follows art as it seems to be doing now, someone’s going to want to assemble the Super Posse to go ashore and beyond to track down the worst of the Somalis responsible for this.  Anyone have a few suggested names for who’d be the modern day equivalent of Lord Baltimore and Joe Lefors?
