Old Story: US Comes to Aid of North Korea
I'm posting this old story because I watched Captain Phillips last night. If you haven't seen it, its about the United States Navy's successful rescue of a hostage captain from Somali pirates. I was looking into piracy on the Horn of Africa and found this story, where US military personnel came to the aid of a North Korean freighter under pirate attack, even providing medical care to the victims. Its fascinating because it demonstrates 1. the fact that the United States is truly the world's policeman and 2. we will help out those under attack, even if we disagree with them politically. How many other countries would do that?
