Perhaps this is the way to deal with Somali pirates, and get a little R&R at the same time: a Russian luxury cruise line is offering wealthy customers the chance to hunt pirates!
hoax, though I think the proposed (morbid and not to mention unethical) solution is still a matter of interesting debate - Thanks rb!
Wealthy punters pay £3,500 per day to patrol the most dangerous waters in the world hoping to be attacked by raiders.
When attacked, they retaliate with grenade launchers, machine guns and rocket launchers, reports Austrian business paper Wirtschaftsblatt.
Passengers, who can pay an extra £5 a day for an AK-47 machine gun and £7 for 100 rounds of ammo, are also protected by a squad of ex special forces troops.
mail info ect. for this Kool,Russian crusie,vaction for 2010/2011.
I'd love to go.
Thanks Dave Fisherman.-USA
Seriously, once you thin the ranks of the hard core cases the remaining pirates would disband just like the 1700s and 1800s.
We really need to sink a few mother ships.
whahahahaha please don;t take the shooting personal... is just business..
