Somali Pirate Yacht Hijack.

If the navy have it pinpointed, how long before the SBS give these guys a fright?

Perhaps an 'accident' with an M16 might deter future attacks on British registered non-merchant craft.

I'm not sure that shooting this elderly couple would deter other Yachties from foolishly cruising in Pirate infested waters

Not even if the Pirates were hit in the crossfire?

I agree - why not send a few yachts out with 4-6 heavily armed SBS chaps on them - sail round for a few weeks & they are bound to be approached - when come along side BANG - no more pirates . Then they will think twice about doing it again. Of course deny everything , no record of anything as its 600 mile of the coast - no one will see or hear anything either.

Give them a bit of their own treatment !

Ahh but Labour would never allow that - they are still attacking the Conservatives for the IRA scum who were killed in Gibraltar - and the lefty BBC always stick by Labour as well.

Does BBC stand for British Brain Control?

I think Blackroady's suggestion is a darn fine one. Perhaps the SBS operatives could enhance the bait by wearing grey wigs & walking with canes while on deck.
