The drugs where in the medical locker per law. Russia is trolling Greenpeace because Russia is hilarious.

I'd be shocked if they didn't find drugs on the boat.

I'm expecting Russia to convert the seized vessel into a "Pirate Hunting" vessel that basically chases Greenpeace away from Russian interests.

They were busted for drugs and "dual-use" equipment? Because you can also use a razor blade to chop lines of coke?

I don't understand all the Greenpeace hate or the Russian/Putin love.

But when the US screws people over everyone gets all mopey and talks about "rights."

It's because Greenpeace thinks that they can do stupid shiat and get off because they are just trying to save the planet.  The Russians had every right to arrest them.

I doubt the Greenpeace vessel can phyiscally support an operating ship cannon. Although, the Russians are a little crazy, they might try it anyway...

I'm torn I hate Greenpeace but also hate pushes to convict on shady legal grounds. Maybe call it a draw and make them eat some whale before they are free to go.

ok they attempted to board a vessel at sea.  Piracy, their goals as far as protest etc are irrellevant.

Does the piracy charge make sense to you? Russia though Gazprom is doing to the Arctic what BP did to the Gulf, how does that make you feel?

Makes me happy. Gulf is doing just fine. Oil is a naturally occurring substance you know. When I get in my car and can drive someplace, I am quite happy Greenpeace and hippies everywhere don't get their way. How much oil does their shio use I wonder?

They are drilling, there isn't a big farking spill.  Ships have been drilling in oceans around the world for decades.  Frankly I'm fine with it.  The world needs petroleum to function until something better and more economic comes along.

they didn't attempt to board a vessel they attempted to board an oil rig their intention was also non violent, so not piracy. They should be released and sent on their way.

It's greenpeace, privileged weak people shouting crap. not a bunch of Somalis with ak's and rpgs who want money. Then didn't get on the platform. You fire hose their dumbasses into the ocean as I'm sure they did.

I didn't say the russians shouldn't drain all the fuel/oil out of their boat and use it for target practice.

ok so if a group invaded your house, but just wanted to hang around in the living room and make you clean the kitchen you'd be ok?  Or would that be breaking and entering?  They attempted to board the oil platform putting workers at risk, since they would have to deal with people running around their equipment, possibly causing damage.

If they want to protest there are lots of offices they can walk in front of carrying signs.  And don't get me started on those Sea Sheppard assholes.

It's a bunch of crazy hippies, I'd be shocked if there weren't drugs on it, not that I care about the drugs. Greenpeace morphed into a highly political extremist group, enough so that the original founder left. They're the PETA of the ocean.

Well it's pretty obvious that the charges are BS but on the other hand it's Greenpeace so.......

Just a question. Considering the Russians boarded the Greenpeace boat and seized it in international waters couldn't we charge the Russians with piracy too?

This could get fun.

No I wouldn't I would shoot someone who tried to do a home invasion, but they wouldn't be committing piracy either. Words mean things, piracy is when you board a ship or boat with the intention of committing violence or theft of property.

Eh? They can deck it out like a US Coast Guard vessel.

Then again, Russians, so they'll probably bolt an old T-72 to the deck and call it good.

I have to side with Greenpeace on this, but only because Putin is a Bond villain. Greenpeace has admirable goals, but their philosophy of how to enact change is fringey and ineffectual. You don't persuade governments and international bodies to do stuff just by having a few dozen people making nuisances of themselves.

Hopefully, next week the Russian authorities will find "state secrets" aboard the SS. Hippy.

Greenpeace should have known the Russians weren't going to put up with their stunts and thus should not be surprised that Russians are turning the screws to those arrested and taking the "Honey Badger" approach to any international criticism.

Doesn't matter what the intent is. Forcefully boarding a ship is piracy.
