About Bloody Time

A discussion of the possible use of letters of marque (via Instapundit). I have been advocating this for *years*. But do I get to publish an article in a law journal? No, I do not.

It would singlehandedly revive the maritime industry (providing Q-ships/privateers), reduce unemployment especially among the young, and encourage the Somali pirates to rediscover their tribal roots as herders. What's not to like?

You forgot the most important thing: The inevitable spike in youtube clips of Somalian pirates being being sent to their final account. Still nothing not to like, though. ;)

Yarrr! I be all for Letters of Marque!

Seriously, though - a Q-ship is an idea for which its time has come (again).

Sign me up!

P.s. "and make rules concerning Captures on Land and Water." We get to take their stuff, too.
