  • Nothing beats Private Enterprise:

Luxury ocean liners in Russia are offering pirate hunting cruises aboard armed private yachts off the Somali coast.

Wealthy punters pay £3,500 per day to patrol the most dangerous waters in the world hoping to be attacked by raiders.

When attacked, they retaliate with grenade launchers, machine guns and rocket launchers, reports Austrian business paper Wirtschaftsblatt.

Passengers, who can pay an extra £5 a day for an AK-47 machine gun and £7 for 100 rounds of ammo, are also protected by a squad of ex special forces troops.

The yachts travel from Djibouti in Somalia to Mombasa in Kenya.

The ships deliberately cruise close to the coast at a speed of just five nautical miles in an attempt to attract the interest of pirates.

“They are worse than the pirates,” said Russian yachtsman Vladimir Mironov. “At least the pirates have the decency to take hostages, these people are just paying to commit murder,” he continued.

  • Not. “You don’t fight barbarians and savages by becoming a barbarian yourself. ” Translation: ” I do not want to get my hands dirty, even if it means saving lives.” Besides, piracy on the high seas was, and still is, punishable by hanging.
  • Why have we become such sick little wussies?

  1. I think this is capitalism at its best. I wish we didn’t have so many pansies here in America so we could offer such a trip. Peace through strength! Make it so dangerous for the pirates that they won’t attempt any more hi-jacking. Trust me, if the success rate goes down to less than 10%, they’ll stop. They stopped during the cold war because of so many military ships being close enough to answer the distress call from the victim vessels and they were getting caught or killed. If you want to protect the ships traveling through those waters, attack the pirates in those waters. They will run like the cowards they are.

  2. I bet this mirrors how interests in the Crusades began to mount a thousand years ago, under much different circumstances I may add…but still the same reasons. Muslims pushed the rest of civilization into such a corner that slowly but surely people’s anger became aroused to the point where they said “why are we putting up with this scum??? Lets just remove them from the face of the earth & improve all our existence here for the better!

  3. Let’s go on safari and bag ourselves some evil people. Ahh! the side effects of appeasement.

  4. Once again the Russians show the way – their solution is correct!! I have absolutely had it with moralistic wankers who are willing to let terrorists and pirates live (and carry on kidnapping and murdering others) because they are too bloody stupid to realize that a good solution cannot and does not exist – only a necessary solution exists – and that is kill them before they kill you.
