piracy


PIRACY(海盗行为) may seem like a romanticized problems of the past. In reality, piracy is prosperous from Sumatra to Somalia, and today’s pirates are far from the lovable fellows in movies like P

irates of the Caribbean.

On September 25 a Ukrainian ship became the victim of pirates in the Gulf of Aden near Somalia. The pirates have reportedly killed one of the crewmen and are demanding a ransom of $ 20 million.

Of course , raiding and killing by pirates is nothing new. Ever since there has been water and ships, there have been pirates. The earliest recorded pirates date back to the 13th century BC in the Mediterranean Sea. Even the famous Roman leader Julius Caesar was kidnapped by pirates in the Mediterranean Sea in 75 BC. He was detained for 40 days until a ransom (赎金)was paid,

Piracy reached its peak in the the early 18th century. The notorious pirate of the Caribbean, Blackbeard, was active in this period. However, today colorful legends and modern portrayals by TV and films help romanticize pirates. They are often shown as eyepatched , standing on a wooden leg. With a mug of rum. Many believe their lives are thrilling tales of rebellion, independence and romance.

Until the mid-20th century, most pirates were petty thieves, They used hooks to climb onto commercial ships, and took all that they could find. These pirates were more likely to flee than fight if seen by the crew.

However, modern-day pirate attacks are shockingly violent, The BBC sports that today’s pirates attack ships with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades, Their objective---to kidnap, steal, attack and murder.

“There’ s nothing romantic about piracy,” said Pottingal Mukundan, director of the International Maritime Bureau. “These are cruel people who are heavily armed and prey on (捕食) people that are weaker than them. “
海盗的活动在过去可能像是被一些被浪漫化了的问题。事实上,从苏门答腊岛到索马里,海盗活动是很猖獗的。而且今天的海盗和电影《加勒比海盗》里可爱的海盗们相去甚远。
9月25号,一艘乌克兰籍船在索马里附近的亚丁湾海域遭到海盗的劫持。据报道,海盗们杀死一名该船船员,并要求2000万美元的赎金。
当然,袭击和杀人对于海盗而言并不是新鲜的事。只要是有水和船的地方,就有海盗。有记录的最早的海盗出现在公元前13世纪的地中海。甚至在公元前75年,罗马帝国著名的朱利叶斯将军也曾被地中海的海盗绑架。他被关押了40天直到海盗们收到赎金。
海盗活动在18世纪早期达到了顶峰时期。加勒比海家喻户晓的海盗黑胡子在那个时期相当活跃。然而,富有色彩的传奇故事,现代电视剧电影的描述,使得海盗们被浪漫化了。他们常常被刻画成这样的形象:戴着眼罩,站在木架上,手里端着一杯朗姆酒。很多人认为海盗们的生活充满了令人兴奋的关于反抗、独立、和浪漫的故事。
直到20世纪中叶,大多数海盗和小偷一样。他们用钩绳爬到商船上,然后偷走一切能偷走的东西。当他们被商船的船员发现时,大多数情况下会选择逃跑而不是搏斗。
然而,今天的海盗的攻击却是非常暴力的。英国广播公司报道说,现在的海盗都是用AK-47和手榴弹来攻击船只。他们的目的是,绑架,偷盗,袭击甚至谋杀。
“关于海盗,没有什么浪漫的故事”,国际海事局局长 Pottingal Mukundan这样说,“这些海盗都是很残忍的人,他们都拥有重武器,专门掠夺那些比他们弱的人。”
