    Yachting to Somalia

    [URL="http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/02/23/earlyshow/main20035245.shtml?tag=cbsnewsSectionContent.1"]http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/02/23/earlyshow/main20035245.shtml?tag=cbsnewsSectionContent.1[/URL]


    First off, RIP to the victims, but who the hell goes sailing anywhere near the Somalian coast? Am I missing something? Isn't there like a ship a day hijacked close to there?

    Yeah. I was saying the same thing in a different thread but was told that people shouldn't worry about that stuff when they're going around the world and looking at majestic scenery.
    :rolleyes:

    The Somali's were probably thinking that they would bring America to it's knees by killing four of our most beloved citizens.

    Meanwhile, we're like...who cares? They were stupid for being there in the first place.

    What amazes me is that the US Navy, NATO, India, China, the whole civilized world's navies can control these pirates? Not just this case, but all of the other hijacked ships. Why should any country pay for a navy if they are not up to this simple task?

    Somali pirates dont care about bibles.

    The lesson here is to always have a tasteful (well stocked, not a cheap variety) fruit basket, or assorted cookie tray, handy on these sailing excursions. I'm sure that if they had just presented the pirates with either of these items, a show of good faith and friendship, they would have been allowed to proceed on their voyage unharmed.

    I thought "adventurous" was sailing to Newport.

    Don't I feel like a wuss.

    Newport is adventurous when you fly there at night. Well, almost fly there.

    He would have done better to fly to Newport.

    Martha's Vineyard?

    That'll leave a mark.

    :D

    No one deserves what happened to them the way it did, but certainly the whole situation deserves some scrutiny.

    Distribution of bibles?

    Sailing close to Somalia, as mentioned?

    Two pirates already dead when SEAL teams boarded the ship?

    One pirate killed by knife?

    There are so many questions I have about all of this.

    Exactly.

    They're attacking further and further away from the coast. Combing the ocean looking for tiny motor boats is almost useless.
