Psssttt: wanna buy some cheap oil?

"They're very well armed. Tactically, they are very good"
Yeah. I reckon!

You don't nic an oil tanker the size of three soccer fields, carrying $100M of oil, without doing a practice run in the backyard.

"The pirates have taken security experts by surprise with their latest strike."
Yeah. I reckon!

You don't expect to wake up one day and find a band of maundering pirates trying to flog a humungous amount of cheap oil down at the local pub.

At this time, pirates around the world are holding onto 16 vessels and more than 250 crew.
