    Danish forces free ship captured by pirates

    Danish forces free ship captured by pirates - Yahoo! News

    Interesting development. Not that the Danes freed the hostages per say, but this gem..

    Other EU and American forces have intervened in pirate hostage situations, but not during the hijacking itself.
    Now that is interesting that the NATO/UN forces in the area are now helping out ships while they are being hijacked.

    Hope it continues.

    My only disagreement with the whole situation is the treatment of the pirates.

    I would prefer that they were either unceremoniously thrown overboard or like "Jack Sparrow" be placed on a remote deserted island with the whole process posted on You Tube.

    Or better yet they could be tied to an anchor chain and made to walk the plank, or just be shot and feed the fish with there sorry asses.

    Shooting them costs money!.. else I agree somewhat. If the raping of Somali fishing waters stops then I would agree fully.

    Well the Samoli warlords and their mafias are part of the problem.

    The pirates come from fishing villages who have seen their fishing stocks being stolen from them by big European, Asian and American fishing fleets. That is the problem that started the pirate problem.

    The warlords are another problem that is not really related to the pirates.

    Yes. Remember, its never the criminal's fault. Its always someone else who is richer.

    Eh? What you expect these people to do? I dont condone their actions one bit, but what the **** do you expect these people to do when there are no fish to make a living off? Just sit and die? They did like every person around the world does.. found a way to make a living out of the situation they were in. This just happens to be piracy.

    Its more the case that the richer criminal is never a criminal. Pirates and emperors and all that....

    Try reading who he blamed. It wasn't pirates or emperors.

    Thats an excuse not a solution.

    You're telling me the only job is crime. They have no other abilities than fish.

    This is your argument?
