    It is obvious you are not well schooled on history (among many other things); appeasement has NEVER worked when dealing with despots, dictators, terrorists or tyrants.

    I would love to see you find one CREDIBLE source where appeasement has worked with such people. You won't find one.

    Facts are certainly not your forte'; when did the US help Ethiopia overthrow the Islamist Government of Somalia? Please provide credible links to your sources.

    Puntland are the ones who are funding it. They have been building ports and smuggling weapons for a very long time.

    The govt. gets bribes off the pirates which means that when they are caught, they are released without a hanging
    For the second time, we are in agreement here; which is exactly why I am calling these thugs correctly "terrorists" and not pirates.

    Cheney now makes money off of Blackwater? Do you have any credible links to support such inane assertions?

    I see where you are coming from. However, the pirates are doing what they do for money, not political purposes. That is why they are pirates and not terrorists. You quoted one of them earlier condemning America, which they are only doing because we attacked their guys to save that American captain who was being held hostage.

    Privateers....awesome.

    Hmm....should I be a privateer or a pirate? Privateer is kinda like a legal form of pirate. It could be cool.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    How one can compare the two is beyond me tho ...
    It's you who's saying just about the same thing -- if ships don't want to be pirated, don't go where the pirates are. (Of course, you're sympathetic to the pirate animals, as you've said in multiple threads, so I don't expect you to be able to see why it's the same thing.)

    Oh, and all appeasement ever does is encourage more of the same activity. Ever.

    I just wanted to point out that they're people, not animals. Dehumanizing people gets us nowhere.

    They are people who act like animals. Putting a friendly face on it gets us nowhere, either.
