Hi Miraflores

thanks for posting. In my opionion is that as long the NAVY,s involved do not use brute force, means shoot the pirates on sight, nothing will change.

Capt. Ted
you'right thats the point!!! some weeks ago i've read that one warship has captured some pirates after an, god thanks, unsuccessfull attempt to capture one ship. later they've let em go... unbelivable??? maybe with some dollars in their pocket for the next bar having a drink and other fun???
the navy's must be rigorous wipping away this nuisance of the sea, like many many years ago during the sailing age!
