C'mon, how could anyone take that seriously?


You tell me. Your track record for these sorts of things isn't exactly the best.

Besides, why would Obama do anything, FE? This is all part of God's plan. If it is happening, and it is part of God's plan, it can't be anything but perfect good. The same can be said for having Obama as president.

Or are you just into relative/selective religiousness?

i was actully thinking about this today,

(this hits home because ive actually passed this ship on my way to work)

with so many ships being captured and such large ransoms being paid, i would think there would be a lot of money to be made. think black water but with a few fast attack craft (150-300' boats)

You know when I was reading this thread I was thinking something like Blackwater should get involved. Hired as on board escorts or something.

I am sure there like 8 million laws against something like that, but I suppose it could be worked.

I wouldn't worry about the laws.  Blackwater could set up base in a nearby country - maybe, say, Somalia - and hire themselves out to passing ships.  They could offer protection, just to make sure that nothin' bad happens, you know what I'm sayin'?  They would just need a small monthly fee.

one one of the ships that got captured they had hired a bunch of ex- SAS guys... they ran away to the top of the ship and when the pirates came for them they jumped into the water and swam away...

it would be hard to carry firearms in and out of port... but if you had a safe port or could have someone bring you supplies and just stay out in international water you would be good...

Ragetti: To blazes with the code.
Pintel: She wants to be taken to the Captain. And she'll go without a fuss. We must honor the Code.

Shoot on sight. Its their fault theyre pirates that are causing problems.
 
Or, I would let merchant ships start carrying illegal firearms BELOW deck until there is a threat.
 
Better yet, I would put out a bunch of fake merchant ships. In reality, they would be full of Marines with guns under their trench coats. Lure them in and open up, forget an international incident. Theyll just disapear.

I've already seen pictures of them carrying RPGs, so it's too late for that.
