Pirates??? Yes, pirates. The sooner nations decide to shoot on site, the quicker the pirates will be less likely to be pirates!!
Our Navy has a policy to shoot. But everyone is so afraid of being PC, they don’t want guns on the ships etc. Afraid of what other nations will think etc. Just afraid. It’s a huge shame too.
The pirates need to be shot.

SEOUL, South Korea (Reuters) — Somali pirates seized a supertanker carrying as much as $170 million worth of crude oil on Sunday, officials said, the latest sign that sea gangs may be seeking bigger quarry.
The ship, the Samho Dream, which can carry more than two million barrels of crude oil, was hijacked on its way to the United States from Iraq, and its crew of 5 South Koreans and 19 Filipinos was taken hostage, South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
