Major shipping does not create dead zones in the seas & Oceans...
The dead zones are created by Fertilizer, Pesticide and herbicide run-offs along with illegal dumping of toxic materials. Along with Over fishing in a major way.

Piracy is created by inept governments, broken economies, and just plain evil people. One way to deal with a boat load of pirates is to blow them out of the water.

Liberal people are living in a fantasy world... Wake up IDIOTS...
