Pirates-Pay ’em Now, Fight ’em Later

Posted by ginnypub on November 19, 2008

06/25/08 Pirates who hijacked a Dutch ship and its crew near Bargal district have released the ship after the company that owns the ship paid US$ 1, 250,000 ransom.
 

 

09/16/2008 Somalis held a German ship and its crew captive until the owner paid millions to secure their release.
 

 

Oct. 17, 2008 A South Korean shipping company paid a ransom to Somali pirates for the release of a cargo ship and 22 crew members seized over a month ago, a company official said Friday.

16 November 2008 pirates freed another Japanese-owned chemical tanker, the Stolt Valor, on Saturday. Indian officials say all crew members aboard that ship are safe, including 18 Indians, two Filipinos, a Bangladeshi and a Russian. Officials say a ransom was paid to the pirates, who seized the ship in September.
 

 

 11/18/2008 Somali pirates yesterday seized a Saudi supertanker carrying up to 2m barrels of oil worth around $100m in an audacious attack several hundred miles out to sea.

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.

 

To which the French replied,  “Êtes-vous blaguez-moi, colonne vertébrale idiot”?**

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?” 

** Are you shitting me, you spineless milquetoasts?
