Re: Terrorism vs. Piracy

It's both but essentially piracy is for financial gain and terrorism is politically motivated.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Terrorism vs. Piracy

Now all we need to do is convince the governments that piracy is terrorist motivated.

Zen is a matter of recognizing reality.

Re: Terrorism vs. Piracy

No reason why one action can't count as two crimes. Piracy is defined by statute. So's terrorism.

And if the perps snuck up on the tanker while entered in a sanctioned yacht race, you could charge them with "ungentlemanly conduct" and DSQ them as well.

Not to mention Barging.

Terrorism or Piracy?
Actually just terrorism by the language of the statement they hijacked the vessel not seized the vessel
Also the US Navy doesn't care if its american flagged the bad guys are dead

The T word is grossly overused.

Re: Terrorism vs. Piracy

"The use of violence and threats"
Since when do they have to use BOTH in order to qualify?

Airport security routinely terrorizes the public, and I call that domestic terrorism plain and simple. It is a dog and pony show designed to install fear, not create security.

There are many kinds of terrorism performed without violence.
