Within sight of a beach they have been left unable to leave without facing charges of having abandon their ship and to make matters worse one of the men hails from a country which is undergoing unrest and may literally now be a man without a country.

Imagine having your liberty stripped from you not for a crime or by a government but by the company you work for. This is inhumane and the company officials should be in prison.

It's an UAE company from what I can tell. No offense but I don't expect much from the Arab States on Human Rights or fair labor practices. UAE is pretty bad in that regard. The company wants to "settle" with the crew for $150k of the $230K they are owed. That is some damned low wages for the length of time.

The fact one of the crew is from Myanmar with an expired Visa doesn't make him a man with no country but it makes it difficult to travel and indeed return home. But it's not like the military ever gave up control on the borders there either. That bit MAY be a bit sensationalized.

I have no doubt that other corporate oligarchs have similar dreams of holding their wage slaves hostage. Even in America.

Exactly - that's also what I was going at in #3 as well. Arab states are notorious for their poor treatment of foreign laborers from "lesser" states - not to mention their own people. These are Monarchies after all...

Thanks for keeping Trump's name out there.
