    As I have said multiple times, if these "innocent" villagers will eject the pirates from their midst, and deny them safe harbor, then absolutely there is no reason to catch them up in eradicating pirate scum.
    These people have no options but to shelter these pirates, who are the chief economic providers to an impoverished community. Until we communicate to them that we plan on helping them out, and organizing a plan to separate the villagers from the criminal mobs to seize control, there is absolutely no way a rational, informed person can blame them.

    Villages that shelter pirates should be dealt with as pirates--swiftly and bloodily.
    Do you really, honestly think that the world is going to take this fanatical, thoughtless bulls*it seriously? The way you think, you'd fit right in with these criminal organizations in Somalia.

    Have you seen what kind of boats these guys drive, they don't need a harbor.

    You act as if people who have nothing to do with these pirates, somehow are also holding guns to peoples heads.

    How are the villagers to eject people with guns, money and a big headed mentality?

    You are suggesting to these villagers, if you don't get yourself killed by kicking out armed men with guns, we will kill you.

    I bet these people are happy, at least now they don't have to worry about starvation, malaria or aids killing them.

    Sounds like these "innocent" villagers are happy to live off pirate booty. So much for innocence.

    If you lived in a hut, you would live off of anything you could. Get off of your high horse.

    Non sequitur. As as already been established, poverty does not justify piracy. That includes parasitically feeding off someone else's piracy. Those that do should be damned right along side the pirates.

    This is ridiculous. So if people mooch off of pirates because they are starving and poor, they should be put to death. Flawless logic, coming from someone who is not starving or poor. It's always easier to tell someone to go **** themselves when they ask you to walk a mile in their shoes...

    Exactly. Accomplices are as guilty as perpetrators.

    You have yet to establish that all of the villagers are "feeding of the pirates". Certainly some do, but provide some proof that all of them support the pirates.

    It seems to be common knowledge, given that thabigred and EgoffTib are quite consumed with justifying it.
