    Great business idea though
    If I'd wanted to live in a Banana Republic I'd have gone to South America.

    Great idea, Somali pirates aren't on the endangered species list, unlike the big game rich tourists hunt at the moment. Would you be allowed to mount their heads for wall display?

    If people are happy to eradicate beautiful mammals like tigers and elephants, think how many more would be happy to eradicate true vermin mammals from the planet.

    Where do I sign up?

    As thought they would have me! With my aged body - arthritis, pre-senility and a total inability to follow orders.

    I thought not, It's easy to gob off when there's no prospect of actually putting yourself at risk.

    I think it's actually you that wants to gob off. You want it so badly that you gob off when it makes no sense. I was responding to the theme of this thread, which is that vigilante pirate hunting might be a good idea and you turn it into an issue of willingness to join the Marines. Eh?! No one would want to do that.

    I could also have said the Marines are no use at the job of eradicating vermin and I there would be no point in joining anyway. They are currently infused with soy drinking, PC, feminist, diversity and inclusion promoters. They are not going to string up the pirates on the end of the pier like they used to in Nelson's day. That's the spirit that is needed. Our lot will give them a big hug instead.
