    Allowing companies to avoid paying for security?

    Pirates are just real world bullies. They dont WANT a fight. And you don't need warship level weapons on these ships. The fact that a vessel has ANY weapons with people willing to use them will deter most pirates so that they go looking for a different ship that probably dont have weapons.

    Make sure the hired guys with guns are on the deck in plain sight. Pirates will see the guys with guns and decide on a better target.

    Could a few RPGs sink a huge **** off ship?

    I think private security is the way to go.
    Money wise companies probably feel it's just cheaper to run the gauntlet.
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    Big sky, little bullet. Amiright?

    Seriously though, its time we stop putting up with this **** and crush these guys. The last time we had a problem with African pirates, we sent in the Marines. Worked out pretty well for us if I recall. I think its time for history to come full circle.

    Last time I checked, tu quoque was considered a logical fallacy.

    Wrong thread. Wrong topic. Shut The Fuck Up.

    Interesting comment article here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/11...aha_discussed/ from the last time we Brits got involved with the somali pirates. I like the conclusion he comes to, in that we need helicopter carriers with lots of marines rather than large ships.

    You guys are sounding more right wing every fucking day.

    Somalia is a broken country, awash with hunger, poverty and guns. Piracy is one of the few things that work.

    More than $3 million each has been paid out for two of the pirate’s biggest prizes in recent months, making the rewards for piracy far outweigh the risks.

    The gun-toting entrepreneurs have developed one of Africa’s bes-performing business models so what the **** do you expect? If anyone of us lived in simular conditions i have no doubt we would consider it.




    Also Piracy is Cool, I've already got a parrot if i happen to loose a leg or acquire a hook... I'm there.
