Negotiate with them and give them whatever they demand. After all, they must be wronged in someway so terrible that it drives them into this unruly lifestyle. Remember, violence is never the solution and only breeds more violence. I'm sure that if you get everyone to sit at a table and discuss their problems, a solution will be found without needless loss of life.

Yeah thats the best way!

It works all over Africa. The record for peacful negotiation and the democratic transfer of power and so on is second to none.

But seriously ,you are joking aren't you? :unsure:

The count is now 17 ships, all parked up ready for collection as soon as the fee's are paid.

I think it's time for the SAS or the Navy Seals to pay them a visit and do a bit of negotiation.

and teach the bastards a lesson they won't forget ;)

I really don't think inviting them round for tea , biscuits and a chat is going to have the slightest effect!

As well as SAS doing something. Plain and simple once authority is established on the mainland then the sea will eventually follow. Until then luxery lifestyles for those that carry the RPG.

 

Edit:

Some video footage from CNN.

This surely is a sarcastic post, no?

Bring back slavery. Run a ship up and down the coast with a big sign on the side saying "treasure". When the pirates come on board, tell them the treasure is in the hold, invite them down and then lock them inside. Deliver them to sweatshops in China and work them to death. No more lavish lifestyles for them.

Our local witch who complains about everything that she can complain about, and litigates happily (her deceased husband was a lawyer and she tried to frighten people into thinking that she is one too), goes on lots of cruises. Now if only we could organise the pirates to go after her ship and abduct her??? But they would probably give her back immediately they found out what she is like. :ph34r:

One really has to wonder how the hell can they board or stop a large oil tanker as they did. This thing is enormous.

 

A few freighters with Special Forces welcoming committees sailing up and down the Somali coast should be able to eradicate most of them.

This would cost alot less than all the ransoms they are paying plus the coast of the military ships that are already there.

 

Anyway no ransoms from the British.

No ransom for pirates, UK insists (BBC News)

they could have tamed a whale and disguised it as an island and made it stand in the way
