    Piracy picking up off Thailand



    Bangkok: Ships are being warned of piracy incidents off Thailand’s eastern seaboard.

    Pornsil Patcharintanakul, a vice-chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, told local media robberies have picked up.

    "Commodities such as beans and sugar can easily be resold after the robbery," he said, adding: "I don't want to see Thailand becoming more like Somalia. A number of marine patrol officers have not visited enough of the vessels."

    "It is very bad news for Thai manufacturers that this problem has returned," said Paiboon Ponsuwanna, chairman of the Thai National Shippers' Council, adding that agricultural products are the main target. [01/02/13]
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    I love the skull and crossbones. The new dipshit hostage pirates should not be associated with the good old "privateers". Always flew one on my ski boat.
