Unfortunately the modern world has no balls for taking care of the problem. I couldnt believe when the captain was taken hostage and rescued several months ago and they left the pirate mother ship alone to return back to land! Personally I think they should have disappeared at sea. If they could just be given a bag of money with a tracking device, then a few cruise missles directed to the land location every time ought to put an end to it. UN??? You're kidding right?

The most irritating thing about this rise in piracy is the fact the governments seem willing to allow it and at the same time vehemently appose the good folks ability to protect themselves!!

It's a CONSPIRACY!! Governments don't want us to be comfortable or safe. They want us dependent and subservient.

Call me when it's time to revolt!

You say you want a Revolution? Well you know...
Seems like I have heard this before.
i will revolt with my vote.
But I certainly agree with you, and feel you anger. It just seems like I never get anywhere without a consensus.
