I'm not going to talk politics!
This is all on the Venezuela Navy, they ignored everything in the book...
And why should they even approche a cruise ship in the first place, they was just fixing there engines? So long you don't have proper evidence, you should just put it under surveillance. but then I am not surprised, Venezuela have never surprised me, when it comes to diplomatic skills.
One of the articles mentioned they suspected the ship of carrying mercenaries planning to attack military targets across Venezuela.
[u]suggested[/u] the Resolute [u]may have[/u] been carrying mercenary
suspecting isn't enough to justify attacking a cruise ship. If you really believe that there is mercenaries onboard, you would send a small coast guard vessel for that.... you would send a coast guard vessel, supported by a bigger Naval assets, where both would be visual for all partners.
And if you want to force a ship in to harbor... raming is not the way.
the funny thing is that Venezuela minister of state said:
claiming that the cruise ship was trying to hijack a fully-armed warship
