Did they steal it, or did we subtly manipulate them into putting up the money for it as a test before we commit? ;)
many groups feel that baiting the pirates into the line of fire is an extreme example of human insensitivity and a case of morbid exploitation

Seriously? I'd call it sensitivity to their future victims. And I'm not sure pirates qualify as human. They know the risks, and they choose to take them. No reason for others to miss out on all the fun.

Day 4 – Mogadishu tank tour
Hmmm, tour of Mogadishu in a tank? T-55? M-60? HEAT, Sabot or Beehive rounds? Details matter people!

If it's not an M-60 with beehive rounds, I'm not going. Where's the fun, otherwise?

"Dubai tour company offers pirate hunting cruises off horn of Africa"

Oh, come on now. It's Dubai. They didn't steal our idea. They stole Richard Connell's idea.
