Re: Team sinks two pirate ships :)

The Bug spray "RAID" don't scare Cockroaches away, But it sure kills them dead. I MHO cargo vessels should have a 1/4 mile sovereignty over the people and cargo they are carrying, Giving them the right to protect by lethal force if necessary to defend the people on the vessel. The shipping company's that take that risk should handle it by a security force capable of the roaches in that part of the world. They should stay together when making there trips, like cruisers do when making a sketchy crossing or anchoring in a deserted anchorage. I say treat them like the Lion fish. "Kill every one you see". I love my fellow "mankind" as well as the next guy. But the folks here are not like you and I. They will kill you and rape your wife in front of you as you lay dyeing .I will pray for their soles. I will never take chances that puts my wife or family members in contact with this.

Uhhh, I don't think so... seems to be a fairly common style of boat in use there...

Some of the ransom money shows up in Bangkok where the Somali mafia is in late night competition with the Russians over control of the sex and drugs on Suhkumvit. A tad violent but the tourist (mostly middle age European and American males ) is blind to reality.

Re: Team sinks two pirate ships :)

Probably a quote some will not like, but ...
“Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart -- and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains ... an unuprooted small corner of evil."
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
What would you be capable of given totally impossible circumstances?
