Qatar detains (stupid) pirates 4, October 2010

Six pirates have been caught in Qatari waters and two boats have been impounded.

While I don’t expect the pirates to have read my various posts on Qatar’s high-tech coastal surveillance systems, I confess I would expect them to realise that the Persian Gulf is awash with oil tankers, LNG ships, coastguard and Navy boats from Iran, Qatar, the UAE, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and…what’s the last one…oh, the U S  N A V Y.

Really and sincerely, this must be one of the stupidest places to practice pirating anywhere in the entire world.
