Breeding A Nation Of Pacifists?

With the highjacking of a yacht in the news, I happened to stumble across this video on the BBC website.

The BBC's transport correspondent, Richard Scott, ends his report with the advice that whatever you do, don't offer resisistence and learn to say 'hello' and 'welcome' in their language so that the pirates would know you are not going to fight.


Disregarding the question of why would anyone deliberately put themselves into a dangerous situation, were I in that situation the only 'hello' and 'welcome' that would be offered by me would appear from the barrel of an AK47!
