How Does 5 Somali Pirates On A 'Row=Row-Row Boat' Manages To Hijack A War Ship With 37 Tanks?
I often wonder the same thing. If I had anything to do with it, I would push for the arming of merchant vessels. I say let them protect themselves and then maybe the pirates will be forced to go and get a real job.
scramble, that is a reasonable question. But reason, reality, has nothing to do with the situation. It costs money to protect a ship. The insurance companies prefer to save money and put the crews at risk by not allowing them to be armed, preferring instead to pay the occasional insurance claim. It's all about money.

After the outright murder of 4 people on their boat, minding their own business sailing around the world, I say when pirates are caught, dish out the same treatment to them! Send 'em to a watery grave without compunction!What say you?Qwark

What is the true purpose of the Somali Pirates? Is it because of lack of food, or is it for material gain?
