YES SIR, WE GAVE THEM FOOD AND WATER AND THEN GUESS WHAT,THEY FUCKED OFF WITH THE SHIP!
Suspected Somali pirates captured by the Royal Navy are being given fuel, food and water and sent on their way. In three cases they were released even though hostages had been found on board their vessels.
The extraordinary revelations yesterday by Defence Minister Baroness Taylor will add to concern about the role of the Navy in tackling piracy. In November it emerged that a Navy ship had stood by as pirates kidnapped British sailors Paul and Rachel Chandler. They are still being held and threatened with death by their captors. Baroness Taylor said there had been four instances in the last year when heavily armed gangs operating off Somalia had been given supplies on humanitarian grounds. None of the 66 suspects captured by the Navy in the last year have been taken into custody.
One former Navy commander said the Navy appeared to be operating a 'maritime welfare system' rather than enforcing law on the high seas.
You want to end PIRACY? You BLOW THE BASTARDS OUT OF THE WATER and then fling them ONE LIFE-RING per five pirates on HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS. Do that once or twice and the PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED!
