    And our government has said they won't be paying. What are a few lives compared to the value of money in these credit crunch times!

    You know how much damage can be done with 1.5 million gallons of oil/gas? That is an estimate could be more really.

    I dont think they should pay, it would just encourage more piracy!

    But they are definitely not doing enough, its an important international trading route and no one is committing enough resources to policing it. Many freight companies are considering the long way round Africa as a route to protect their freighters, which of course would add an exponential cost to shipping, which in turn is passed on to the consumer!

    This situation makes p1ngy sad! [​IMG]

    I guess sea pirates are as impossible to stop as digital pirates

    I just hope no one gets hurt, screw the oil, the sooner we run out the better.
