Royal Navy sets pirates free to commit further acts of piracy to be paid for by insurance companies/consumer

Last week, the British Royal Navy captured a bunch of Somali pirates, deprived them of their weapons, made them a cup of tea and sent them off home. The lily-livered rules of engagement state that pirates may only be apprehended if caught in the act of attacking a vessel. Being in a gang of cutthroats cruising the high seas in a speedboat armed to the teeth with machineguns and rocket launchers is simply no grounds for apprehending any disgraceful murdering son of a bitch.
