Do the Math

This isn't rocket science, folks... you wanna discourage unacceptable behaviour... it's as simple as... "slowly let your breath out... and squeeze..."

-- BRUSSELS -- Private security guards on board the UAE-owned cargo ship MV Almezaan, aboard, have repelled a hijacking attempt at sea in skirmishes off Somalia that left one pirate dead, the EU’s naval force in the area said Wednesday.
Now, it might take a little while for these dumbass thugs to catch on... but, trust me, eventually, they'll get it...
The pirates had at first withdrawn but had returned for a second attempt, at which stage the private guards had apparently fired on their attackers rather than just firing in the air.
Less than fifty bucks worth of ammo... problem solved.

NEXT!!!

"Bartender, give me a Somali Pirate."

"How do you make that?"

"Just a couple of shots and a quick splash."
Ba-da-bing.

i'm thinkin' a 50 grain .223 fmj zippin' along @3,300 feet per second doesn't give you much opportunity for sober second thought.

two words... pink... mist.

Last spring when the American navy snipers took out some pirates, there was a joke making the rounds:

"Bartender, give me a Somali Pirate."

"How do you make that?"

"Just a couple of shots and a quick splash."

I was wondering when these cargo ships were going to get the message and start firing back. Suprised it has taken so long.

Nice to see private enterprise succeeding when governments, as usual, fail.
