Being literally in the middle of nowhere and illegally on a platform with no friendly witnesses seems like something of a pretty stupid idea.....but what the hey...they had nothing better to do than raise our gas prices.

Sounds like the very definition of "piracy" to me. They should be treated like the Somali pirates that have been prosecuted recently. Or maybe like the pirates the SEALs "prosecuted" a couple years ago

Lucy , you got sum splaining to do.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
