The History Channel ran a
program on July 16, 2007 and again on July 25, 2007 with many facts about
how pirates are rampant in the South Pacific, murdering, pillaging, and
plundering no less than happened in the 19th Century by such as Blackbeard
and his crews and others who had no regard for human life. Driven by only
greed, these pirates take for profit and have no concern for human life.
Pirates still roam the seas. The South Pacific is almost a haven for these
vandals. They intercept shipping, steal the cargo they can, leave the
ship in shambles, and run off to sell the things they steal to buy arms
and fund terrorist operations. The navies of the world are almost powerless
to do anything about them. This story is about one person, one boat, and
the crew who decide to do their own protection. Of course, it's illegal
to do what they do, but they would rather be alive to defend themselves
than dead and have no say in their defense.

I have reviewed this book
pre-publication and am amazed at the intricate detail the author has gone
through to give us an idea of how the pirates are willing to murder and
maim the innocent crews of the ships they sail.
