Rules of Engagement – when pirates attack… UPDATED

Based on today’s tragic events, I would like to update my previous ROE discussion with the following statement:

Anyone traveling through the Arabian Sea or Gulf of Aden on a ship or private yacht should be highly prepared and ready to defend themselves using deadly force.

If a boat is close enough to yell at you, they are already too close.

Shoot first, ask for forgiveness later.
