Default Somali Pirates

Great to see that people are now employing self defence when dealing with those animals. As for the daft Kenyan official (sorry Shadya) saying that weapons should not be carried on merchant ships, does he honestly believe that a loud sonic device would actually protect a cruise ship against piracy? Anyone passing through those waters needs to emply a team of fully trained and suitably armed security guards as a minimum requirement in my view.

what you need is some serious hardware, rockwets launchers etc - when they arrive, just blow the ****ers up.

I mean, isn't it that simple?

I have a lot of friends working down there now with the Navy and other organisations. Some of the stories I'm getting told are quite hilarious. Especially the indian navy almost causing the pirates to panic and shoot the ships captain. The shermans and the brits were hanging off 'negotiating' through VHF when the indians sailed right on past and started the 'shot across the bow' procedure..the captain (an indian, hence the Indian Navy's rush to assist-national pride or summit) had to scream on the VHF to tell them to piss off before they get him killed..

Classic..

So are you suggesting negotiation or force? Its not very clear from your story. What is your position, Mr.Commander?

Always negotiate...

Then Force, but only as a last resort.

Always...

And when force is required, don't let the friggin tommohawk chuckers anywhere near the place...leave it to us or the yanks...if you don't want innocents killed, rule the yanks out also

let em have some of this lot,



oh and i'm fairly certain that the only long term solution is to intercede in somalia, kick the shit out of the warlords and set up a government, until that happens piracy is a very viable option for revenue generation for the warlords

how about 'let it slip' that a cargo ship is coming through that has a billion dollars worth of cargo on,

then when all these dudes appear in their boats steven seagal jumps out and loads of others lads armed to the teeth jump out of port holes and funnels and stuff and just blow them all up?

But how do you negotiate with pirates? Its a contradiction in terms. Why don't the rich Arab nations, whose petroleum tankers seem to be targetted more often than any others, establish some sort of patrolling naval force off the Somali coast? Alternatively, President Spugsy has a good plan but one probably more suited to the Israeli Secret Service who seem to have expertise in that area.
