THE Royal Navy, once the scourge of brigands on the high seas, has been told by the Foreign Office not to detain pirates because doing so may breach their human rights. Warships patrolling pirate-infested waters, such as those off Somalia, have been warned that there is also a risk that captured pirates could claim asylum in Britain. The Foreign Office has advised that pirates sent back to Somalia could have their human rights breached because, under Islamic law, they face beheading for murder or having a hand chopped off for theft.

This is how a country that cares more about the HUMAN RIGHTS OF ITS OWN CITIZENS THAN THE “HUMAN RIGHTS FOR THIEVING, MURDERING TERRORISTS:
April 13, 2008 Last week French commandos seized a Somali pirate gang that had held a luxury yacht with 22 French citizens on board. The hijackers were paid off by the boat’s owner and then a French helicopter carrier dispatched 50 commandos to seize the hijackers and the ransom money on dry land.
There was a reported sighting of the ghost of George Washington saying to the ghosts of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, “Did folks learn nothing from what we taught them?”
