Russian Coast Guard Seizes Greenpeace Ship, 30 Activists

The Russian coast guard is towing a Greenpeace ship toward the nearest port after armed officers stormed it following a protest against oil drilling in Arctic waters.

The agency said today that the ship’s captain refused to operate the Arctic Sunrise, so a coast guard ship has arrived at the scene to tow the ship to the city of Murmansk. The trip will take three to four days.

    Please tell me that the overbearing Captain Wilson was smashed in the puss with an AK.

    BTW, can we presume the Greenpeace ship is fueled with unicorn farts?
