Pirates Attack!

Who knew? The Malaysian still refer to "Terrorists" at sea as Pirates!

Now I don't know about you, but I think it would be much less unsettling if we referred to all Terrorists as Pirates. It somehow seems much less scary. I don't care if the pirates today have missle launchers, I still envision Johnny Depp in a head scarf - funny, not scary. Hot, even. Definitely not something to give me a panic attack on the subway or while driving through the Holland Tunnel.

Yes, from now on, in my world there are no more Terrorists, only Pirates.

There is already an international contingency in place - The Piracy Reporting Centre of the International Maritime Bureau - or of course, IMB as they are also known.
