Humm...

Good job Pirates.....all crap...!

Why do this Pirates, come across the seas, and harass the people ? Is it a entertainment for them, or they are really cursed ?

Hope they get into a real world soon...!

God Bless All...

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.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well, to take the middle way, it is a bad choice to choose piracy, BUT the dead zone could very well have been created by the alleged dumping of toxic waste off the Somali coast by the Italian mob, among others.

BBC NEWS | Africa | Waves 'brought waste to Somalia'

In addition to that a UN report estimated that, with the fall of the Somali Gov't, international fishing fleets have been plundering the waters off the coast to the tune of $300 Million a year. The ill-equipped Somali fishermen were overrun by modern foreign craft.

Nothing in this world is as simple and as black and white as it gets portrayed.

I've read a few books recently on modern pirating, and they can be quite brutal. Furthermore, their tactics are going to lead to a major environmental disaster as they will target any ship, including oil tankers. One captain of an oil tanker described being boarded and his entire crew being held at gunpoint while his tanker steamed away through a narrow channel without anyone at the helm. Not good.

Personally, I don't think these guys are merely looking for a free meal.

I had a dream where I mounted a SeaWhiz on the bow of my little crusing vessel and taught them a lesson:

TRT—

While the Somalian fishermen may have started out attacking boats to protect their waters, the current pirates have NOTHING TO DO WITH FISHING. They are simply criminals looking to make a profit.

A 38' sailboat is not going to be a threat to fishing in any waters. They don't have the equipment to make a dent in the fish population in any significant way. If the pirates were really fishermen, what is their motivation for attacking innocent passenger vessels that are not involved in fishing?

The current pirates are just that—pirates pure and simple. The only real prudent way to deal with them is to kill them and burn out the nests that they operate from. If the people on shore don't want to clean up the problem, they're part of the problem. Either you're against the pirates or you're for them. The lack of anything resembling a functioning government is a huge part of the issue. Fixing that would go a long way to putting an end to the piracy.
