    DON'T pay the bastards.

    Looking at the crap vessels I would imagine none of them are worth US$ 1M so sink them at the dockside, the argies are used to that.

    I bet when the news gets to Beijing they will make sure the Two Yuan Whore will get no money for The Dark Country after this.

    Happy days!

    Lu Rong Yu 6177 was in Shandong Province yesterday .. nowhere near Chubut. last reported on Lu Rong Yu 6178 in May. She was then also in Shandong; not impounded in Chubut.
    Fu Yuan Yu 873 was fishing a few days ago off West Africa, but I suppose she could be currently arrested in Puerto Madryn.

    I suppose Piscator really is in Argentina, and not fishing somewhere off the Lofotens.

    The GREED for US dollars. Now don't forget how to do this. These are “elements” of the Chinese and Spanish navies. As such, they cannot be detained. How about some REAL compensation? A totally real US$50 bill. Drop the mines as you leave argie harbour!
