Pirate Hunting Cruises

Recommended Posts

A Russian luxury yacht company is now offering pirate-hunting trips that promise the chance to be attacked by real sea bandits. The yachts cruise from Djibouti to Mombasa in Kenya at deliberately low speeds in the hopes of attracting pirates.

 

Passengers pay $5,000 for the trip, and an extra $17.50 a day for an AK-47 and 100 rounds of ammo. The price includes free origami towels in the rooms. Former Spetsnaz troops are on board to make sure none of the cruise passengers are injured.

 

This sounds like something right out of a 1970s scifi flick, like "Roller Ball" or "Deathrace 2000".

What the russians are doing is no different than what nations did in the past when dealing with pirates. They're called corsairs, look it up. Basically mercenaries of the sea and it's legal. And regardless of how some of you feel about it IMHO the good pirate is the dead pirate. Kill 'em however you can. It'll stop when they fear for their safety at every turn.

I think someone took one of the many sarcastic humor posters of this and jumped to the rather idiotic conclusion that it was real.
