YIKES: Venezuelan Patrol Boat Sinks After Ramming German Cruise Ship

Not the most illustrious incident for Venezuela.

Published

A Venezuelan naval patrol boat ended up sinking after an altercation earlier this week with none other than a German cruise ship.

A statement from Columbia Cruise Services of Hamburg, Germany, explained the oddball confrontation between the luxury cruise ship RCGS Resolute and the Venezuelan naval patrol boat Naiguata.

The Venezuelan boat had radioed the cruise ship, that wasn’t carrying passengers, and demanded to know of the ship’s intentions as it passed by the Venezuelan territory of La Tortuga island. The Resolute’s crew had been carrying on engine maintenance in the area, maintaining they were operating in international waters.

After the cruise ship refused to comply with a demand that it approach the Venezuelan port of Puerto Moreno, the fast boat approached it after midnight on March 30th.

Crew from the Naiguata are said to have fired small arms at the Resolute, after which the boat tried to approach the ship in an effort to force it to change course to Venezuelan territorial waters. The much smaller Venezuelan vessel failed to realize the Resolute had a reinforced hull in order to allow it to sail in icy waters.

The Naiguata suffered serious damages from the repeated collisions with the cruise ship. It began to take on water and efforts on part of the cruise ship’s crew to contact the vessel went totally unanswered. Columbia Cruise Services say the Resolute left the area after receiving word from an international maritime agency that no assistance would be needed, and the Venezuelan crew of the patrol boat were later rescued.

Nicolas Maduro tried to explain away the extremely embarrassing incident for socialist Venezuela, claiming that the luxury cruise ship was carrying foreign mercenaries planning to carry out operations against the country. He described the unarmed luxury cruise ship’s presence north of his country’s territorial waters as a “act of terrorism and piracy.”

27 Men In Bradford, UK Arrested For Online Child Sexual Exploitation

Published

on

Police in Bradford, UK, a few days ago arrested 27 men, ranging in age from 16 to 57, on charges of sexually exploiting children online.

It was reported that police have been warning of the danger to children from predators online especially now during the coronavirus lockdown which keeps people indoors. Between late March and late April, Scotland Yard claimed that almost 100 children were targeted in London alone.

Some have pointed out that curiously, no information other than age appears to have been given out concerning the arrested men. Given the UK’s abysmal history with foreign rape gangs, overwhelmingly composed of Muslim men from Middle Eastern and Asian countries, this may mean this is just another instance in a depressingly steady pattern.

Bradford, described as “multicultural” by Breitbart, was the location of yet another case of child grooming gangs, according to a report from 2018. Of the suspects, 63% were of Pakistani background, and many others from other Asian and African countries, with only a minority being “white British.”

Police also reportedly seized over 60 devices which were used both to exploit children online and store indecent pictures.

According to a detective chief inspector, “Targeted operations like these demonstrate that we take the online sexual exploitation of children in Bradford District seriously and that we will take action against offenders and safeguard those children they have attempted to exploit.”

Unfortunately, the UK’s record on the competency and will of its police in dealing with foreign rape gangs does not inspire confidence. Indeed, tragically, there have been multiple cases of cops themselves participating in the abuse of minors.

Despite the nature of the offences and the stated urgency of the issue, as well as the statements of police praising their own actions, for reasons not clear all of the men were released under investigation or bailed shortly after having been taken into custody, and are presumably roaming free once again as inquiries continue.

This, along with the lack of transparency surrounding the case, certainly does not inspire confidence that British children are being protected as they should be. Unfortunately, even the current Conservative government has proven itself feckless and unwilling to truly tackle or even honestly address this issue which is of such dire and tragic consequence to the most vulnerable of its own citizens.
