“Killing hostages is now part of the rules”

Posted by on August 3, 2011

WARNING LETTER: “Killing hostages is now part of the rules” gCaptain

While ISAF recognises that the final decision on whether to enter any area where pirates operate and how to conduct a vessel in those waters remains entirely the responsibility of the master of each vessel, the current advice from the military is simple:

Do not sail in the western Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Somali Basin and Gulf of Aden.

While many cruisers take offense at any government agency telling them what to do and where to do it, it may be good advice to heed at times. The other side of Africa (Gulf of Guinea) seems to be heading down violent path as well.
