Good free Men (read: American) of OT, I come here to appeal to your patriotism and sense of nation. Back in January of 1968 the USS Pueblo was capture by North Korea. The Pueblo was a spy ship and was collecting data on Russia when it supposedly drifted into North Korean waters, though we still claim that we were still in international waters at the time. Diplomacy has failed in attempts to retrieve this vessel which has served America in its prime. The USS Pueblo is still commissioned under the United States Navy and I believe that she deserves to be brought back home and given a proper welcome home party. This is where I need you, free men of OT, some good and able-bodied men with a large pair of brass ones to come together to repossess one of our own. My plan is to commandeer the vessel once she's already up and running. North Korea sails her once a year on the anniversary of her capture to mock and dishonor us. I believe that a few small boats with automatic weapons carrying 15-20 men would be enough to board the ship at its furthest point from land and make haste for international waters. As soon as the ship has been boarded, we hail out to all ships nearby with a distress signal. This ship at full steam would take roughly one hour to travel the approximate 12 nautical miles from it's voyage. Once in international waters, Kim Jong Il and his lackeys wouldn't DARE come after us. Think about it, if we could get some very dedicated men onto this, not only would you be an American Hero, but you'd also become a legendary pirate of sorts. Once we get back to America, we will all be heroes and retire dirty filthy rich and have one hell of a story to tell our grandchildren. With enough interest, I can begin gathering intelligence and securing funds to train and send various parties across the world. I, myself, will infiltrate North Korea months ahead of time, learning the language, surviving on the fauna and flora of the countryside. I would build frequency jammers with parts from Radioshack and begin sabotage of their communications. North Korea couldn't mass a retrieval party in the hour it would take us to get to international waters. I have friends who are doing Intel in Japan and they are telling me that this is possible. And no, it wouldn't start a war. This IS our ship. One of our own and she has been in enemy hands for almost 40 years now. Who's with me? Cliffs: North Korea has one of our ships. In for stealing it back?
