Never said all the piracy is caused by the fish-stealing and polluting.Originally posted by: ProfJohn
I am going to guess that they are not targeting just the people who are stealing 'their' fish though. How many American fishing vessels do you think are over there?Originally posted by: Craig234
How many foreign ship crews stealing their fishing and polluting their waters will it take to make that 'high risk', and do you support our taking those actions?Originally posted by: ProfJohn
It is all about risk assessment. Right now it is high reward with low risk, we need to change that to high risk and then they will stop. It will probably take a LOT more than three dead teenage pirates too.
So your position is, make one wrong 'high risk', and ignore the other. Let's be clear.It has nothing to do with fish and pollution and everything to do with cold hard cash.
You say 'it' - whatever 'it' is - 'has nothing to do with fish and pollution and everything to do with cold hard cash.'
Funny, the Somalis would probably say 'it has nothing to do with piracy, and everything to do with the cold hard cash from stealing fish and polluting.' Why are you right, not them?
Why not say both deserve being made into 'high risk' activities to stop them? If you want to save the typing, we know the answer, because only one issue fits your ideology.
