  1. Let me get this straight the suet canal is providing service for transport the ship across shortcut to the Sea, the service come with the contract that you will carry or delivered the ship across when you chose to accept that contract you bear all responsibility, of course you have the right to refuse the service but you chose to accept it now you hold them Ransom I don't get it.

  2. This ship might be too big to pass through the canal. It's not the only ship of its size. With huge ships like this they should start going around Africa and the canal should be widened if possible to prevent further accident s like this occuring.

  3. International laws need the people of that ship to be safe and therefore be rescued.
    If the current value of the ship and cargo doesn't exceed the claim, one can always ask them to keep the ship and let insurance pay all for cargo and ship. They can do whatever they want to with the ship.
    Besides, exploring international laws and acts of terrorism might help against Egypt.

    Always curious about natural resources in addition to ports and rights to canal that Egypt holds. Would anyone ever wish to explore them?

    At minimum, does Egypt provide the next good training grounds for military worldwide? 🙂
    By the way, Egypt used it's personnel and equipment because they are responsible for it since they also earn from passage of ships through the suez canal. They did it because they too would have lost revenue per day until help would have arrived. Is Egypt on both banks of the canal? Who decided that only Egypt has the sole right to all revenue from the ships passing through Suez canal?

    Shouldn't old cases of theft, piracy, extortion in the Suez canal be brought up and settled against the current situation? Egypt might have a lot to pay to the world.:)

  4. They better get used to loosing money, when Russia opens up the Arctic ocean routes with ice breakers, a whole lot of shipping companies will use that shorter route and the money will go to Russia. Will Egypt claim the losses from Russia too? I think not…..

  5. Egypt has requisitioned the cargo containers they have begun opening them up and selling what they can so far they've got 12 tons of cocaine and 3 suitcase nukes

  6. WHAT. THE. HELL ARE. YOU. TALKING about!!! Why are you doing this. it. WAS. E V E R G R E E N!!! it was shown all over again and again ===EVERGREEN!! AND. A N D it was last seen in Long Beach harbor California, USA. ARE. YOU NUTS??

  7. One would think Egypt is doing what it's told not what it wants to do. Without the ships they get nothing and there's always another way to get things done. Guessing it's a war move between the giants or there's something on that ship being kept from it's destination.

  8. Excuse me but you are incorrect that is not why it was seized .it was at the request of the USA .and Israel US Marine and navy seal's and Israeli navy had removed countless containers with dead body's ,and live body's all where children in other containers they found weapons of mass distruction all headed to middle east ownerships include the Clinton's and wayfare and more.
    They have also arrested 9 other ship in waiting with same cargo.
