Sounds like it is time to keelhaul a few 10ites. And remember, we have super carriers now, so it is a lot more painful.

I thought the keelhaul was a pirate tradition. Is the Navy not completely anti-pirate?

Now there's an idea, although what would truly get you on being keelhauled on a carrier. Drowning? 1100 feet of Barnacles? Or the Screws?

Keelhauling was reserved usually for the most despicable acts against crew, captain, or ship. Basically, it meant that hanging you by the yardarm was considered too leniant for your crime. It was used as punishment by both navies and privateers/pirates alike.

Most pirates where just part of some one else's navy.

Most of the time. A few were "self-employed." Blackbeard and Black Bart come to mind...
