Most merchant boats do not carry arms for the crew. I saw a special about it that explained reasoning as to why,
1) fears that it could increase the violence toward all crews indiscriminately as the pirates would not know who was or was not armed.
2) Fears that a battle could cause large oil tankers to explode and that would be costly to both the environment and the insurance companies.
Anyway, on to the question;
I think that India and Pakistan will not go nuclear in 2009.
Other 2009 predictions;
The stock market will drop precipitously in March or April.
Some excuse will be found to begin the sell of a North American Union to Americans and Canadians. (I expect no resistance from Mexico.) Probably
something along the lines of "We need to recognize that we ARE a global economy, like it or not, and we need to begin to act that way to prevent
these unfortunate occurrences." I would expect that later in the year, when the next round of foreclosures has had time to hit and people are nice
I know, not hard predictions considering the situation in the US at the moment, but even though I closed my eyes and said ommm several times I did not
receive a vision of an alien armada stationed behind the moon poised to attack.
This is fun, maybe in December of 2009 we can do a review and see if we have any psychics among us.
