    Too bad there isn't an Orca or two over there........I hear they're not too choosy about what they eat.

    Sharks neither.

    Those boats will work if the ship is low in the water and/or the pirates have weapons which can damage the hulls of the freighters.

    That's kinda what they do........point an RPG at a ship around the water line, and generally, they will let you come aboard.

    Not sure we need to go that far to put a serious crimp in this. See post on another thread.

    There are, of course, other things we can do as well (this should help drive some people on this forum around the bend): pin a death card on all those we kill at sea then drop them out the backs of aircraft over their beaches. Preferably near known pirate hangouts.

    i just think it is ironic that these pirates claim the sea is dead and there is no fisihing so the have to become prirates and are stopped cold by hundreds of dolphins in the very sea they claim there are no fish in......

    i like this un report....
