A few more details: the ship that picked up the raft of niggers was a cargo ship, not an NGO vessel. They picked these people up out of the goodness in their hearts – and for that, they will be severely punished.

Not the goodness of their hearts, international maratime law. If the skipper had not picked them up he would potentially see prison time.

Too many laws protecting shit heads.

International Maritime Law says that you must transport those you pick up to the "nearest safe port".

No matter how you slice it, Italy is very far from "the nearest safe port" to Libya (especially when all of the "migrants" are in boats designed to sink a little over 12 miles off of the coast of Africa).

This doesn't sound like a humanitarian issue, it sounds like a Hostage Rescue issue, with lethal rounds and a possible backup from the big cannons and torpedoes on the Navy ships if the rescue attempt becomes impossible.

Well yes, he wasn't bringing them to Italy, which is why they seized the ship. Most likely he was bringing them back to Libya or Tunisia.

I wonder if there's an exemption for maritime law concerning picking up these people if you fear for your life and the lives of your crew.

I believe that makes them pirates. Maritime law has very harsh penalties for pirates. Just enforce the law.

Don't most countries have subs, jets, and apache helicopters?

[–] GapingAnus 0 points 16 points (+16|-0) ago 

You also need the will to use them.

The law should be "will" enough

[–] this_is_my_4th_acct 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Only the US, UK and Israel use Apaches. But most real countries do have helicopter gunships

[–] Zuluroar 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

South Korea uses them as well.
