I hit send before I was done. I just edited it for a bit and was not able to save the edit. I had a lot addded to elaborate. In short. UN can't do anything as they have No Teeth. It is up to the countries that Do to do what is Morally Right and Just.
Letters from corrupt officials authorising boats to carry weapons will be easy to get so as to add revenue to the officials / warlord's bank account. I.E. Re-sale of yachts and small ships 'Captured in Acts of Piracy'. Like fishing
and catching a fish
within the sight of one of his 'Enforcement vessels'. Taking to long to transit his "area of Influence' It seems to me the list can go on and on with imagination. I can guarentee teh majority of teh 'Officials' I am talking about in many countries around teh world are not stupid and they wil have scapegoats to sacrifice. Best thing is not to put on in harm's way. But if you have to? Be on teh biggest vessel you can be on, and have LEGAL
armed guards available and WILLING to do what is necessary. After all, Look at what SeaShephers are doing 'legally'. Boarding a foreign vessel at sea and causing them physical damage. They get away with it. I don't like teh whaling thing, but what Sea Shepherds is doing is not much less than what the Somali's are doing, or the Indonesians, Fillipini, or on and on and on around the world.
