US. troops has boarded a norwegian vessel outside of Los Angeles.

If anyone are being attacked by heavily armed personell, would you not feel rather unsecure? Escpecially if they don't identify themselves?
Puh. Kinda scary that this has become legal over there in the US.

I guess it would/could someday lead to an incident where someone suddenly opens fire to protect themselves. Not good at all.

Just a note, this happened in September. It's not happening now.



In late September, however, the vessel suddenly was stormed by a large group of commando soldiers while lying in port at Los Angeles.

What, they`ve boarded Tampa once again?
Maybe they should change name on that vessel...

"We still don't really know whether these were genuine soldiers, anyone can go into a costume shop and buy uniforms that make them look like a US soldier."

Opening fire on U.S. troops would not be an act of self-preservation, but a terminal act of stupidity.

So if I dress up as a US soldier I wouldnt get fired upon, is that what you say? Unless those who fire upon me are US soldiers who happen to know that I was not a US soldier. Who can tell who is a genuine soldier and whos not if no legimate credentials is required?

The heavily armed soldiers, numbering around 20, refused to identify themselves, nor would they say why they were boarding the vessel.

they stripped Norwegian Captain Ove Overgaard of his command and proceeded to ransack the vessel for the next three hours. Crew members were searched as well.

Is this legal? I can understand searching the ship if they had a reason. But without any positive ID except pointing their guns. Were they even soldiers? How would you know who is a real soldier and who is just anybody wearing a uniform for a fancy dress party? Is this making America safer? I guess they don´t have to ask anybody if they want to do things, but isn´t there any set of rules they must follow at all? I guess not...

That's a bizarre story. Even if it hapened 4 months ago. It seems strange that the mainstream media didn't report this occourance. It seems like just the stuff reporters love. That said, Has the US government spoken on the subject at all? If they had some kind of intelligence regarding the vessel, the Captian at least should know....or be told if he doesn't know. Seriously, I'm not one who normaly questions my government, but this sounds completely ILLEGAL from all sides. If it were a group of military impersonators, wouldn't the US government come out and say that they were not involved? They have high-priced PR people working for them. If they werent involved, they should come out and say so. If they were involved,....they need to come out and explain to everyone why.
