    It really is. They had an interesting piece on NPR yesterday. It seems that piracy is now run by a few powerful warlords and the guys doing the actual work are just expendable independent contractors. Several years ago, the guys boarding the ships were the ones taking home the money. Now they get a pittance from their employer, or a bullet from the spetsnaz. Things are tough all over man!

    I love this man. I always thought we and the Russians should somehow develop a way to become close allies....;)
  4. Of all the people a pirate wouldn't want to be caught by.

    They aren't going to have a good time now . . .

    In Soviet Russia, Pirates get Pirated!

  7. I was just scratching my head at this the other day.


    I don't like where this is going [or where it's been]. :(

  8. Naaaaah.

    They'll be abducted by aliens ;)
  9. K'naan talks about this

    apparently the pirates used to help people out, and they just wanted to protect the coast line

    but then they got greedy and it became all about the money...............balls

    I sure hope the Russians are reading them their rights. :D
  11. Yes, I believe a certain Mr. Kalashnikov will be running them through it and providing easy to understand translations!
