How the Poles handle Greenpeace

Several places to have posted this but, frankly, the way they, ahem, 'expeditiously' handle such thugs just made me smile - a lot.

Poles seize Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior, arrest captain
The Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior attempted to block a ship carrying coal from unloading in the harbor of Gdansk.

Armed Polish border guards boarded the vessel, breaking a window to gain entry. They arrested the captain, offloaded all 18 passengers and crew and seized the vessel.

CFACT has reported extensively on the strong antipathy the Polish people feel towards anyone who threatens their energy security, particularly as they view this as driving them into dependence on Russia. Being bullied by Russia is the last thing Poland wants to return to.

A few years ago Russia seized the Greenpeace vessel Arctic warrior when it attempted to board an offshore oil platform and arrested all on board.

Will Greenpeace learn that it cannot break the law at will?
Video & some pics at the jump here.

(One commenter even mentioned they should've just scuttled the ship - with the captain on it.)

Rainbow warriors a.k.a Eco-terrorists.

Love it!
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

Houston Ship Channel

Seems they are doing coordinated events. Same day as the Democratic Debate here in Houston. Why risk officer lives to bring them up? They got down there, they had a plan for getting back up. Starve them out and let them suffer in the Houston heat and humidity. Federal charges apparently for blocking a waterway. The comment section is pretty good. Some folks simply said "Target practice".
