This doesn’t turn the Mediterranean Sea
into a “No-Go Zone” but it does not do anybody any good either.

’Turned From Rescue to Piracy’: Migrants Threatened to Kill Ship’s Crew Unless Sailed to Europe

By Virginia Hale 11 Jul 2018 Breitbart News

African migrants who thought they would be denied passage to Europe became violent and threatened to kill the crew of an Italian supply ship that had rescued them.

Vos Thalassa, a specialist Offshore Supply Ship which works supporting French oil and gas company Total, picked up more than 60 migrants after responding to a distress call in the Mediterranean on Sunday night.

But within minutes, the crew were taken “hostage” by the people they allowed onboard, according to Il Giornale, which reported that some of the individuals who were rescued became enraged when a Libyan coastguard boat arrived on the scene to take the illegal immigrants to safety.

“It turned from a rescue to piracy,” commented the Italian transport ministry, stating that “death threats were made”. . . .

. . . The migrants grew increasingly aggressive and threatened to kill the crew “because they did not want to return to Libya in any way” when they saw the boat, “forcing it to head north”, he added. . . .

Reap what you sew. Maybe they’ll wise up and stop carting illegal folks in now.

I’m sure there is a way somebody somewhere will divine up a way to say this is “Trump’s fault”?

We just need the Irish Navy to step up their patrols,
As first responder, problem solved.

Yes, this IS clearly Pres. Trump’s fault, and I present my evidence:

1.- The Italian ship was named VOS THALASSA, which contains 11 letters.

  • The name DONALD TRUMP also contains 11 letters. Mere coincidence?

Need more proof?

2.- The word PIRACY contains 6 letters.

  • The word DONALD contains 6 Letters. Another coincidence?

Need even more proof?

3.- The words AFRICAN MIGRANTS contain 15 letters.

  • The words DONALD JOHN TRUMP contains 15 letters. Yet another coincidence? I think not.

There, solid proof that this IS Pres. Trump’s fault. :wink:

I still blame this on the Irish Navy.

If they had been there to pick them up, they would have received a fast and proper ferry service to Italy.
Even the NGO boats don’t provide anything equivalent to Irish 4 star amenities,
