    Re: PI$$ ANT PIRATES , Hillary's new Navy

    I don't know if this is the same situation as the last one I read about but it was not a military ship. It was a private business in international waters. So I don't think military intervention typically would apply.

    I saw an interview with the ship or cargo owner of the last ship that was hijacked. He made a business decision to pay the ransom. Kind of like pay $250,000.00 or lose $5,000,000.00.

    There are many tactical ways to "take them out". Depends on the owners I suppose to a certain degree.

    Wonder what would happen after the first communication from the hijackers if they just turned the radio's & phones off? Let them just sit on a boat in the middle of the ocean.

            Don't worry as I am sure you would be safe in one of those situations. It took the pirates 5-hours to capture the ship and the entire time they were heard screaming "WE WANT THE REDHEAD".

                  This all my personal opinion. I think in the future, private companies like XE(blackwater) will be providing security. A pirate boat would be very easy to take out. One or 2 guys with a M240(new M60) could take them out pretty far away, 1100 meters. IMO if a boat comes to one of those ships without proper authentification, then blow it up. Better to be alive and wrong then right and dead.

                    My exact thoughts . The minute men from Concord and Lexington could do the job!
                    Piracy is why the Marine Corps was formed. Marines were sharpshooters in the rigging
                    killing pirates. Our Navy was formed to destroy these pirates. They could,if the hand cuffs
                    were taken off!

                        I felt JC made a valid point. It's not that the military would not go after the pirates in the example he used, it was that the owner was allowed to pay a ransom rather than have the military handle it. The owner made a decision to pay money to save his crew, his ship and the cargo. I think he made a mistake but it was his mistake. That does not however mead the military would not have taken them out after the exchange had they had the opportunity. It appears what the pirates do is they head back to shore and make the exchange outside of international waters.

                          As much as I would love to see it, you can't solve this situation with a missile or sneak attack. It's too late anyway. The whole world is watching now. Time is on our side here. In a few more days the food and drinking water will be gone in the lifeboat. They will either surrender or die of dehydration. They will have suffered the same fate as the missile except Hillary and Obama will be seen as brilliant for showing restraint in his first real test of mettle.

                          One the other hand, the missile would likely prevent another attack by other pirates next week, next month, next year.

                          Is the captains life worth that of 4 or 5 piss ant pirates?. Probably not, but is it worth the lives of many that come after him?...maybe

                            When the owner of the ship who paid the ransom was interviewed he said his way was the best way. However, he slipped up when they asked what happened to his pirates. He said he was not sure and for all he knows they may be the ones holding the Captain. All paying ransoms their does is insure their will be another attack by the pirates.

                              I'm pretty sure that if Bush was in office during this, the flavor of the ocean would be "piratey" at this point.


                              Kill, ask questions later. Allow for media and public circus outcry, back to business, keeps the rest in line.

                                I have a different take on this. I'm not sure of the amount of shipping traffic. It may be thousands of ships and very few hijackings, But if a company is sending ships to these waters with no armed guards,soldiers or mercenaries then they aren't to smart. And I don't want my tax dollars tied up protecting people that won't pay to protect themsevles at what would most likely not be a huge cost. How would this be. Armed guards thwart attemped highjacking. It isn't like they would be out gunned by a strong foriegn navy.
