    Its fair game for ships to shoot to kill right? Its open water and these are essentially terrorists. Pirates are pretty stupid to mess with the British Navy. The Brits have some years behind them on the water I would think.

    I would think so. In any case, I'm guessing the Indian navy probably was thinking "shoot to kill" after the pirates fired at them...

    Oh for sure on the Indian Navy. But Im talking about when your ship is hijacked and you have a shotgun. Is there any law against that on the water?

    Re: Pirate mother ship set on fire

    It seems to me like these boats would start arming themselves a bit... I mean some have started taking evassive manuervers and the like... only 1/2 of the hijacking attempts have been succesful but.... it seems like more could be done

    Ninjas don't even have boats.

    One shot from a pirate's gun and the ninja goes down for the count, if the pirate can see him long enough to shoot.
