Runner, the problem is what you refer to often in your posts 'profit'. The big guys are in it purely for profit which in turn means sooner or later someone will be screwed. In this case big fishing
companies destroying the local stocks, in the interest of profit, so to eat the local have to do some thing, in this case pinch cargos and that has lead to pinching ships. Sure planting a garden is a great idea but telling your hungry 5 year old "Don't scream in hunger, the carrots will be yummy in 6 months time' probably doesn't work that well.
I know what your trying to say but just change a few words and your posts could easily be referring to the profiteering seen on Wall Street that has lead 10 of 1,000,000's of people being screwed, some to the point of being food
less and doing bad things to eat.
Are you advocating bombing Wall Street and the supposed business leaders as well or just those who use guns
rather than financial instruments as their weapon of choice?
Use all the money and troops being spent chasing the pirates to plant gardens and sort out local infrastructure and a lot of the problem will go away. Dump some of the huge grain and other stock piles the countries sending the warships to the area have while the food
If sections of the world stopped concentrating purely on 'profit' a very large amount of the world troubles like this will go away.
Yes there will always be bad bastards but I'd suggest many of these 'pirates' and what some refer too as 'terrorists' are only Joe Averages trying to feed their kids
using bad methods purely out of desperation and lack of other options.
