New Pirate threat. .. uninvited bording

It is getting dangerous out there. Now pirates are resorting to incredible lengths to disguise themselves as the jump aboard unsuspecting boats. This is frightening.

Re: New Pirate threat. .. uninvited bording

Going Walkabout, please give us some evidence. Links to news articles or first person reports would be appreciated. You are always trying to spread fear amongst the group but you very seldom, if ever, back up your posts with evidence.

Re: New Pirate threat. .. uninvited bording

I dont think anyone is trying to spread fear as much as notice that the **** is going to hit the fan in a more personal way than in the past and if only we would do some research in the right direction we would all be enlightened..Some crazy bunch of western hating SOBs recently said that the Mediterranean would fill with the blood of the infidels..Watch what happens with the security personal in that area of the world from here forward or just call and ask them what they think about people sailing around with no fear and or indifference to the global threat assessments being blasted from every direction...Or as has been stated several times already google US State depts . travel advisories..No one wants to come across as a war monger or a person that spreads fear of wars I think this person is just concerned for his fellow sailors safety..Ignorance is bliss reality is real..

I had to look up contradictions and this post came up. Lol. Not spreading fear but spreading non factual piracy claims on a public board. He knows he's doing it but he is ignorant to it. Right.

Some places are getting better. There has not been one piracy attempt this year near Somalia. West Africa is getting shittier.

I understood what he meant as I had read a story/link that was posted on CF. I could see where the uninitiated(the people that didn't read the link) would have a problem with the reading of the post..Why am I talking for this guy? I don't know!

The OP linked the video as an image...

As you can see, having a gun onboard was ineffective in this piracy act
