So, does this qualify as piracy, or a straight-up act of war?

BERLIN – A Venezuelan navy ship fired shots at a German-owned cruise ship on March 30 and rammed into the passenger vessel, leading to the sinking of the warship in the Caribbean.

The Iranian regime-allied Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro accused the captain of the RCGS RESOLUTE cruise ship of “terrorism and piracy" and sought to force the ship into a new direction on the high seas. The cruise ship, which had no passengers on board and was sailing under a Portuguese flag, has a reinforced hull that enables it to sail through ice water.
I really doubt the captain of the VZ ship did this without orders; if he did he's probably shark food by now.  Which means Maduro & Co. are getting really desperate, and stupid.

Socialism is all about stealing stuff from capitalists. They build nothing on their own. In this case, looks like they wanted a cruise ship.

What on Earth is Maduro thinking? Somali pirate ransom scenario??
