    I'm surprised they haven't been labeled Marxists, yet.....the same way Lil' Dumbya labeled the FARC, in Colombia.

    I think it's reasonable to see this as a self serving statement for "pirates" to justify being "pirates".

    Regardless of a "PIRATE'S" stated "issues" commandeering, hijacking and holding for ransom peaceful merchant ships in international waters let alone endangering human life and even killing people is simply not acceptable.

    I personally wish we'd scatter a few Naval ships capable of carrying jets and/or attack helicopters and have a stated "NO APPROACH WITHOUT PERMISSION ZONE" around vessels in this area.

    You wouldn't get them all... But you have a couple dozen pirates in their wide open wanna be speed boats blown about 20' out of the water like shooting fish in barrel by an attack helicopter or attack fighter jet and the trill of a possible ransom is diminished greatly.:)

    Who's with me?


    Dead men tell no tales and spend no ransom money!

    If they're so concerned abouth dear mother earth, why do they need millions of dollars in ransoms? Are they spending it on preservation of the planet, or to get stupid women, of which there seems to be a lot of lining up to marry and get a free ride off of someone who stole from others? They're just cowards.

    LOOKING GOOD...Yea, for our side.

    On another forum I suggested that now with 'Black Water' falling out of favor in Iraq...that large corporation of mercenaries will be looking for jobs...maybe those shipping firms need to check into hiring 'Black Water', they certainly know how to 'take no prisoners' and they are quick {real quick} on the trigger!

    I'm so happy for Mr. & Mrs. Phillips and family...what a wonderful gift to give his children...daddy back for Easter supper!!!

    I don't see people in the ghetto being happy, but then maybe happiness for STUPID people is easier to come by. You would know Shaman.

    That's not a bad idea.

    Even though I felt their judgment was not great in their operations in Iraq a group like "Black Water" would be less of a risk to innocent civilians in an @ sea security mission.

    Plus when you think what these huge shipping conglomerates are paying in losses and insurance they could easily fund some much upgraded security in the shipping lanes.

    Good post on new ideas to help keep sailors safe!

    So by this post I'm to assume that you believe that the Somalian Pirates are justified in attacking any ship in the International water lanes??? Then by that standard or any other thoughts of allowing piracy/blackmail/physical harm/hostage taking to be the acceptable rule for Somalians because they are poor and starving fisherman...:confused:

    ARE YOU SERIOUS???:eek:...those aren't fisherman that are doing that hijacking...their nothing but a band of Somalian Mafia Thugs and in International waters the large ships aren't bearing down into any Somalians fishing areas and destroying anything that they live off of or need to survive...these large ships have every right to protect themselves as it has been for centuries.

    Somalians are starving from their own corrupt hierarchy society that allows the haves {oil/mining} power rich to keep the money from the have nots and there by keeping the oppressed forever oppressed! The environmental pollutions come from within their own government...systemic poisoning of their streams and fresh water is coming from the mining sludge run offs!
