But when 4 Americans are killed we get all worked up. Sometimes people just disgust me.

    Are we really that surprised?
    Poor countries are expected to hold to the same law many wealthy and 1st world countries disregard.

    This is nothing new. The double standard. One can get away with breaking the law, the other cannot.

    It's one of the many things that makes deplore the fact that I was born in America.

    I guess they'd never heard of somali pirates. Or else they were just really, really cocky.

    Crazy would be my guess.

    I wouldn't go anywhere near HOA if I was sailing. No idea why anyone would unless they are escorted.

    I just heard about things like the 85% Atheist population, and the fact that their government is actually interested in alternative, sustainable, clean energy. It sounded like the right place for me.

    Excellent choice. It is a beautiful country
    It'd be my first country to emigrate too outside of UK.
    That and Canada actually.

    Both the countries are one of the best in the Western world imo.
