I have never seen anyone so AFRAID of, and THREATENED by, religion than you
Religion is the scariest and most dangerous issue the world has dealt with since the beginning of time. It's terrifies me. ANY religion.

I would strongly agree with that. People do some really crazy things in the name of religion! Can you imagine how much less friction there would be in the world if everyone believed in the same Easter Bunny, or better yet, no Easter Bunny at all???

You pirate a ship, you die. No mercy from us. The world hates us anyway, we get no thanks or consideration for the billions in aid we provide. We need to set a precedence and stop this now. What will the rest of the world start doing? Haiti and Cuba are very close to where many of us boat, what's to stop them? They have severe economic issues and organized crime. Unfortunately, a few innocent people may perish to stop this now but in the long run it will be far less than if we let this spiral out of control.

OK. I am done and stepping off my soap box.

This "tolerance" of the pirates actions has to end with swift force. IMO

That's a joke right?
