I was thinking that you'd expect a ship full of military cargo to be able to defend itself from pirates..... Fephisto (talk) 12:44, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Pirates with Tanks?[edit]

A lethal combination. -Supergodzilla2090 (talk) 23:25, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Global Warming![edit]

Any further updates?[edit]

The last update regarding this incident was over a month ago. Anyone know how this stand-off turned out? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:15, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

They still have the ship, 204. They released a Greek ship today, MV Genius, that was captured the same day as the Favina. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 22:48, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
