Re: Yemeni Pleads Guilty in Hijacking of Seattle Couple (s/v Quest)

Shark bait? C'mon guys have some charity and kindness in your hearts.

It is so unfair to the poor sharks. They deserve better than to be fed such rubbish.

Re: Yemeni Pleads Guilty in Hijacking of Seattle Couple (s/v Quest)

Maybe if the capturing country gave them what they deserve (Walk the plank!) the waters would be peaceful again.

Back in the 1800's any captain, military or civilian, could dispense judgment to captured pirates.

The title is misleading "Re: Yemeni Pleads Guilty in Hijacking of Seattle Couple (s/v Quest)" It should read: "Re: Yemeni Pleads Guilty in PIRACY of Seattle Couple (s/v Quest)" Hijacking doesn't convey the proper gravity of the crime. It's not like he hijacked a car. (although that is a heinous crime, too.)
