In the United States, they offered to issue privateer certificates to combat the Chinese fleet

The United States needs to start issuing privateer certificates to combat Chinese aggression at sea. Proposals for the use of privateers have been published in several publications by the US Naval Institute.


This month's Proceedings magazine has published reports titled “Unleash the Privateers!” and US Privateering Is Legal, sponsored by retired US Marine Colonel and senior adviser to the Washington Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Mark Kansian, as well as former CSIS PR specialist Brandon Schwartz.

According to the authors, China’s larger merchant fleet makes the United States vulnerable, so there was a need to undermine the Chinese global trading network, which would seriously affect China’s economy as a whole and jeopardize its stability. To this end, the authors propose to issue special documents allowing private ships to capture the enemy's merchant ships.

They are convinced that such a campaign would be a legitimate and inexpensive way to curb China’s growing power at sea. It is argued that privateers will not be able to provoke a war by their actions, but rather prevent it.

It is noted that the issuance of letters of marque was prohibited by a series of treaties in the 19th and 20th centuries, but the United States did not officially sign anything. Therefore, the authors stated that the US Constitution gives Congress the right to “provide private letters of evidence,” and they explained the fact that since 1907 no such certificates were issued, they explained them as “strategic and political considerations, not legal ones.”

Recall that the issue of issuing letters of marque in 2007 and 2009 was raised by Congressman Ron Paul. He offered to use privateers to fight Osama bin Laden and Somali pirates, but was refused.

It is noted that the US authorities certainly will not follow these recommendations, but according to experts, such proposals reflect the positions of think tanks that advocate a much tougher policy towards China.

    Are they not afraid to receive an answer from China in the form of "marque certificates" for the capture of American ships ...?

          It’s good that you remembered "deeds of bygone days, traditions of deep antiquity"True, ushkuynichestvo was officially considered a spontaneous phenomenon generated within the borders of Veliky Novgorod, which made itself an independent state in its arrogance, apparently from constant commercial relations with Europe ... But this is a completely different story, nothing to do with Anglo-Saxon gangsterism legitimized at the state level for centuries, not having! And these parallels, to put it mildly, are completely incorrect! hi

              Our Second Catherine introduced the concept of "armed neutrality." The British robbed Russian merchant ships on the basis of their marque certificates. So, Catherine ordered the captains of privateers who entered Russian ports to be hanged without trial, and the teams to be exiled to Siberia. Russian ships patrolled the Baltic and the route along Norway. When a privateer was found on the robbery, the captain was hanged, but the ship and the crew were released. For a couple of years of "armed neutrality", the looting of Russian ships stopped.
              Interestingly, this decree is canceled? what

                Unfortunately yes.
                According to the declaration of armed neutrality of February 28, 1780, with Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Prussia, Austria, Portugal, and the Kingdom of both Sicilies, an agreement was reached on closing the Baltic Sea for the ships of the warring powers and on mutual protection of the principles of armed neutrality.
                With the accession to the throne of Emperor Alexander I and the signing of the Russian-English Petersburg Convention on June 17, 1801, the agreement on armed neutrality ceased to be valid.

              "Capers are not fruits at all, but the flower buds of a plant called the caper. Scientists have about 300 names of the caper, and its homeland is Asia and Africa. Among all the many species, spiny capers are used for food. It is specially grown in Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Algeria In the cuisine of these countries, the use of this piquant spice is widely cultivated, and the best varieties of capers are also exported.
              To make capers tasty, they are first picked by hand to find the smallest buds - they are considered elite. "

            We are talking about the very phenomenon of piracy, regardless of the presence or absence of licenses, and if we talk about Hurry Novgorod the Great, it would be appropriate to recall that it was the Novgorodians who called the Varangians to the kingdom ,,, , Our lands are spacious and rich.

        He was the state. A DEMOCRATIC state, because he plundered the surrounding peoples so that the North still remembers everything perfectly. But officially, even the Novgorodians did not think of issuing licenses for robbery. The Ushkuyniks were simply not chased, although they knew what kind of "merchants" they really were.
        By the way. Does case law in the Western world rule? And here is just an interesting precedent. With Japan, it seems, not all cases have been resolved. Is there no peace? Is it time to continue the hostilities?

      Cappers (German Kaper), corsairs (French corsaire), privateers (English privateer) - private individuals who, with the permission of the supreme authority of a belligerent state, used an armed vessel (also called privateer, privat or corsair) to capture the enemy’s merchant ships ( and sometimes ships of neutral powers).

      If it is not clear - the former were engaged in the "craft" optional and not quite (and sometimes not at all) legally, while the latter were actually PMCs on free bread.

    For the first time, Russia resorted to the services of privateers back in the 1570th century under Ivan the Terrible. For example, in March 1334, he issued a "royal charter" (privateer's patent) to the Dane Carsten Rode. Under Peter I. In "Materials for the history of the Russian fleet" (vol. II, No. 1716), the Senate decree of 1787 was published on the issuance of passports to Lieutenant Ladyzhensky and Second Lieutenant Laurens Berlogen so that they could "captain" Swedish ships on shnavs "Natalya" and "Diana ... With the outbreak of the Russo-Turkish War of 1805, the Rules for Particular Corsairs were issued, specifically for the Greeks who were privateers in the Mediterranean under the Russian flag. For example Lambros Katsonis. With the beginning of the Russian-French war in XNUMX, Admiral Senyavin issued letters of marque. So Russia has a glorious history of privateering. And without any "Anglo-Saxons". What is there about "about the predatory mentality and the gangster essence." That is, they robbed, but without pleasure, with disgust.

      The meaning of what you listed in relation to the times starting with Peter I is that you accepted commanders on the Russian service on your ships, or gave money to organize and arm the ship. And to increase the interest of commanders and crews, they gave the right to share production ... At the end of the war, these privateers curtailed their activities and, as a rule, left for Russia.

          It’s not necessary to get used to it, but to understand it is desirable.
          In conditions of war and a huge distance from the homeland and the authorities, war in the form of privateering dramatically increased the effectiveness of actions.
          An ordinary warship, having captured the enemy, would have to escort him to a squadron / base, where he would have been legally plundered by the leadership of the fleet and the country.
          And this is considered normal ...
          And when the middle-level commander performs in the interests of the motherland, this is bantitism ...

            And this is written by "patriot"? What kind of Russophobia? Russians do not rob, only Anglo-Saxons do it. Extremism of some sort tongue

        Now everything happens. I just bought it recently milk 0,837 liters. It was written on the packaging. Small, small, barely found.

        I understand that the time is hard, only sugar and 1 kg of salt remained in the store. Rice, buckwheat, etc., have long been 0,8-0,9 kg.
        BUT 0,837 LITER, CARL !!!
        Well, why not 0,85 at least? Well, to hell with him, 0,8 liters. But 0,837 !!!!

        By the way, in fact (it hurt me a lot - I admired it for two days) I weighed it on an electronic scale (I have it with the "milk" function - there are such, the density of milk and water is different) turned out to be 0,832 liters. I didn't understand anything at all. As a geographer in Ilf and Petrov's "Golden Calf" I almost went crazy. wassat

        And you say
        you have small packs

    How to account for ship ownership? - most of the ships sail under "flags of convenience" - even the flags of Mongolia ... It's just that the United States wants to sink "the necessary ships" by "proxy". There will be no "American ships", the United States will hire, for example, ships flying the Russian flag, and the "Russian bourgeois" will willingly take US cargo and ask for protection from the Russian state.

    I do not understand why everyone is silent? The United States declares impudently, openly, calls for the assassination of heads of government of sovereign states, and allows piracy. Is this not an insult? In fact, China can sue the author and the United States as a whole for such an article.

    They are convinced that such a campaign would be a legitimate and inexpensive way to curb China’s growing power at sea.
    Nonsense, the Yankees consider maritime terrorism and banditry legal, that’s hoopoes without morality and recognized international rights and rules.

      The Chinese, by the way, on piracy, privateering, had a rich history, those same triads. The same Strait of Malacca.
      Pirate Queen Zheng Shi or Madame Wong ..
      The Chinese also piracy.

    According to the authors, China’s larger merchant fleet makes the United States vulnerable, so there was a need to undermine the Chinese global trading network, which would seriously affect China’s economy as a whole and jeopardize its stability. To this end, the authors propose to issue special documents allowing private ships to capture the enemy's merchant ships.


    I'm just in shock. What kind of advisers or experts work in the USA ?!

    That is, in their opinion, the United States can allow anyone to rob Chinese ships, but China will not answer in any way? )))

    The USA will provoke 3MB and this is a fact.

    Taki, this is an act of aggression against China ...
    LETTER OF MARQUE
    Initially, it was believed that these documents gave individuals the right to appropriate the property of private individuals of another nation as compensation for damage that they suffered through the fault of this nation or its representatives. After the 16th century, as a rule, letters of marque no longer implied reprisals for the damage suffered. They offered privateers rewards or interest on the sale of captured merchant ships, and thus encouraged private shipowners to participate in hostilities against a hostile state.

    After the first case of a privateer capture of a ship in China, China will not tolerate.

    In the United States, they offered to issue privateer certificates to combat the Chinese fleet
    Well, even without these certificates they began, and not only with the fleet.
    The Czech Republic and Poland have already plundered Chinese aid to Italy. Who knows, maybe a similar "instruction" was quietly launched earlier, but now it has only been voiced.
    Everything seems to be just beginning.

    They are convinced that such a campaign would be a legitimate and inexpensive way to curb China’s growing power at sea. It is argued that privateers will not be able to provoke a war by their actions, but rather prevent it.

    Does this look like a declaration of war, or do I not understand something? And what, China will tolerate this? Did they start off there in the USA? fool

    This is the whole essence of democracy. It is the pirate community that is inherently democratic. This is the election of a captain, this is a black label impeachment .. Democracy, you understand. Pirate republics cradle of democracy. She, democracy, is IMPOSSIBLE without robbery !!! A democratic state can exist only on the basis of either slavery or piracy. Two models but with one essence. Slavery is expensive. Slaves need to be fed. But piracy is more progressive. Without investing anything in feed, we remove the cream by robbery. The alternation of the two models gives stability to democracy. Where the whip is direct robbery, where's the gingerbread investment.
    Therefore, there is no need to be surprised at thoughts of privateering. This is natural for democratic thinking.
    Threat China for the United States is a rebellion of slaves led by Spartacus)))
