    Step 1: Pirates hijack Russian oil tanker
    Step 2: Russian Marines retake ship and capture pirates
    Step 3: Announce that said pirates will be taken to Moscow
    Step 4: Abandon step 3
    Step 5: Abandon said pirates from step 1 in 'an inflatable boat' 190 miles from shore in the Indian Ocean without navigation aid and with 1hr of battery on a radio beacon
    Step 6: Pirates drown

    when i was in the Navy we were on anti pirate ops in that area but you wouldnt believe the amount of legal red tape there is.... our marines were ready to go search the pirate ship which was about 3 miles away. We had a stand off for 4hrs waiting for the ok to come back from London to go board them. In the end it was taking too long and we had to hand over to the Americans as we were on our way home and had deadlines to meet. fuckin stupid!!

    I think there could be a step between 5 and 6 involving a nuclear explosion, but noones gunna ask a Russian about that.

    Hijacking anything Russian can't be a clever idea.

    u missed out a few steps before hand

    1. don't sell africans weapons to fight the domino effect
    2. don't pull out the peace keeping operation half way through
    3. actually spend some of the billions raised for victims of the tsunami on the victims rather than just rebuilding tourist resorts in south-east asia


    i'd rather have a military force that worked through red tape than one shoots first and asks questions later

    We should go over there and steal something precious of theirs, like a cooking pot, make them really understand what they are doing.

    All forces are covered by rules of engagement (ROE cards) which makes it illegal to shoot first unless life is threatened. Its not about shooting them first, it was simply the permission for the Royal Marines to board them to do a search.

    i'm not saying thy were gonna go in guns blazing, but it's the definition of how threatened ur life is that becomes shady, the american chopper that killed the news crew, and a whole square of ppl, because they thought a camera was a rocket launcher springs to mind, the US have these rules but their MoD defends them, so what can anyone else do except declare war on the US

    Well thats where it becomes tricky. In all cases when u have discharged a weapon or killed someone, u are arrested. mad as it seems its what happens. Then you go to a hearing and u build ur case on the ROE cards. On the cards theres a list on when u can discharge a weapon so u build ur statement up around the cards and word it correctly.
