Someone, somewhere is going to have to work up the mettle, put the phone-call, fair-trials, lawyers, appeals-to-the-high-court etc to one side, find one of these gangs or groups and blow them all out of the water and the footage to accidentally appear on Youtube. That ought to send a message out to the rest of the scumbags. Alternatively capture them and send them to Saudi Arabia wearing 'Mo is a HoMo' t-shirts and it'll be off to chop-chop square after a speedy trial.FOX News - Somali pirates armed with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons attacked a Dutch-operated container ship off the coast of Tanzania but failed to hijack the vessel, a maritime official said Sunday. The attack Saturday shows the pirates are becoming bolder and extending their reach further from their base in Somalia, said Noel Choong, who heads the International Maritime Bureau's piracy reporting center in Kuala Lumpur.
Eight pirates in two speedboats chased and opened fire at the ship about 520 miles east of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, starting a fire on the vessel that was quickly doused by the crew, he said. "The pirates used RPGs and automatic weapons to attack the ship but it managed to escape after the captain increased vessel speed," Choong said.
......Warships from Denmark, India, Malaysia, Russia, the U.S. and NATO patrol a vast international maritime corridor in the Gulf of Aden near Somalia, escorting some merchant ships and responding to distress calls. But the pirate attacks have not abated. Some 100 ships have been attacked off the Somali coast this year, of which 40 vessels have been hijacked. Thirteen ships remain in the hands of pirates, including a Saudi supertanker filled with $100 million of crude and a Ukrainian ship loaded with 33 battle tanks.
This way if some bleeding-heart lefties start bawling and wailing about their rights and what not, tell em'. They were sent for a trial before a judge and all that, what's wrong with justice in Saudi Arabia, you told us all cultures are equal, are you saying that Islam is somehow less equal now or something, that sharia should be banned from the west, didn't think so. Check and Mate! Hopefully.
Jokes aside folks, you can't catch them and bring them to an America or Britain to face court and serve time. It'll be a few years of paradise for these savages, free meals, healthcare and cable TV. Then upon release, they just need to get before a judge and wail about their human rights, father was never around and mother was too busy, racism and how the local warlord back home will cut their balls off if they are deported and the judge will grant them permanent protection and a life on welfare.
That won't be any deterrent, I don't like it much either but that's just the way it is, some need to sleep with the fishes, the sooner the better. Is there an easier way?
If we don't have what it takes, then you better be careful where you go cruising and you know all that stuff those ships are moving from A to B, if you're paying for some of it, expect the price to start going up. Cos someone has to pay for all this and it sure ain't Santa or the Ocean fairy, you reflect on that for a while
I mean, you're already paying for the welfare of various oxygen thieves in the western world through your taxes, you want to add these savages to that list as well? I don't.
