Re: Do not pick up illegal migrants in the Med!
Sorry, I meant the OP's perception of the news item fit their intention to spread the narrative indicated by the title.
Actually you, nor anyone else, are mind readers. You cannot know, or ever know what I perceive, think, understand etc.
I have sailed the Med. My boat is in London and every time I cross the Channel I am boarded by the Navy/CG* etc searching for illegals. When I slip back into the Med the chance of coming a cross people floating in the water increases.
My perceptions may be 'wrong' to some, but by jingo, by crikey, I'm thinking about them more than people not sailing these waters.
Maybe I should have added an extra clarification and put it in the Med sub-forum. I sure wasn't expecting Cuba to pop up in this thread! I was certainly expecting people to be more up to date on the Med situation.
* Not the fricken US Navy or the USCG! but the UK, French, Dutch navy's
