Crushing vs. decisive victory
I think crushing victory is a little overstated. In fact, no Turkish ship was sunk, and while they did not sortie again in that war, a crushing victory in my view would require a majority of ships to be disabled if not captured or sunk. Accordingly, unless someone disagrees, I will revert the last edit tomorrow.Argos'Dad 17:53, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
Wasn't Barbarossa a privateer rather than a pirate? He sailed under the Turkish equivalent of a letter of marque, rather than plundering indescriminately as a pirate would. Antidespotic 18:09, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
The turkish casualties as in the table are fewer than the ones mentioned in the text if added. (190 in the table and 320 in the text) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Xristar (talk • contribs) 20:38, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

This should be a decisive victory
