Retro piracy - Should the Royal Navy kick arse?


The pirate and Alexander the Great

"St. Augustine describes a confrontation between King Alexander the Great and a pirate whom he caught. Alexander the Great asks the pirate, 'How dare you molest the sea?' The pirate turns to Alexander the Great and says, 'How dare you molest the whole world? I have a small boat, so I am called a thief and a pirate. You have a navy, so you're called an emperor.' St. Augustine concludes that the pirate's answer was elegant and excellent and that essentially tells the story. Retail terrorism directed against our interests is terrorism; wholesale terrorism carried out for our interests isn't terrorism."

'black on black shootings'

---"Have a look at the papers and tell me where the black-on-black shootings happen? They're around the night time economy," said Eyles.---

surprised no-one has picked up on this not only blatant racist comment but also ignorant understanding of causes of violent crime

indeed logically since the majority of britons are white and hence most crime will involve white people would anyone talk about white on white crime? no , because it is not only irrelevant but racist.

regarding the actual story - if enough people resist and are unco-operative no way the police can manage it, e.g. what's to stop people from lying on the form and putting down 'classical music' as opposed to 'grime'

there is a future for this i think

hmm at the moment from what's on the site you may well be tempted to say what's the point!? but i can see this approach being integrated to written forums - one immediate positive is that you are likely to get a more original debate going than if you are limited to text

US Navy builds Stingray-esque base in Indian Ocean


stolen land

"Various people in the Indian Ocean area will be viewing the announcement of the Diego Garcia upgrades with interest."

I would imagine a lot of interest will be shown by the Chagossians whose lands the US now occupy.(http://www.refusingtokill.net/Chagos/chagos.htm)
