Re: Titanic protection saught


Well the main prob is who is going to assign a warship to guard a piece of ocean? Especially the North Atlantic, in the winter months, which was when those pirates got into her?

True...the sad fact of the matter seems to be that if soemone wants to loot her, they will find a way. emoticon

I agree but at least we could prosecute if they did. Or a matter of when they did.

Re: Titanic protection saught


I agree that salvers should be kept from invading titanic. It is one thing to go down there and look, but as i always say we look with our eyes not our hands. TO me there needs to be some sort of international law to protect the rights of her and her deceaced crew and passengers( and to my knowledge there is no such ENFORCABLE law). Just because there is no physical evidence of people's remains if you will,being in that ship still does not make it any less of a grave site. WHat about those bodies that were never recovered? That is thier place of rest because it is the last place they ever were. That is thier final resting place which is my definition of a grave. Sorry to behind in the discussion, just got here. BUT anyway that is just my personal opinion.

Re: Titanic protection saught


hi I agree with you some sort of international law or regulation should be placed on her. But it is not the law that is the main problem it is the fact how to police it.

Your thoughts on final resting places is a great observation and belief and I for one agree most heartedly. It is also well worth remembering that people went down inside her so that fact cannot be refuted it is a grave.

Ballard had the right idea but unfortunately no one else did.

And yes a good theory about looking but don't touch. I was taught that from been a kid but sadly in today's society it also seems to be a disappearing thing of the past like the good old ships of the era.

Again welcome aboard and regards
Graham

Sadly too true graham and its a shame too. That is how i was brought up too, so I cant believe that this is an actual issue. Too bad, I wish i could have lived in the days of morals

Hi Titanicangel06

I agree it would be nice for just once in a while to live the times where morals meant something, respect for all was in place. I used to call all my tutors sir or miss, now adays it is totally different.

The respect for your elders seem to of gone as well, now it is how many times they can con them or rob them before they are caught. What a world we now live.

Children don't call there parents by mum and dad anymore. That's if the parents can be bothered to bring there children up. No offence meant to anyone there by the way.

The main worry is when you look around and see some of the yobs ( tried to find a better word ) around it makes one cringe for the future really.

Regards
Graham

No worries you make an excellant point and it ties to what is going on with these people that are mooching off of the dead by taking thier property and displaying or selling it for profit

The whole thing of looting ships (and that's pretty much what I consider most salvors to be) is very sad. I've been against salvaging ships like TITANIC from the beginning. If nothing else, we have the sad example of divers to the resting place of EMPRESS OF IRELAND taking away bones of those who died on her.

The above is a casualty of loss of respect in my view...so many can't respect the living...why on earth would they respect the dead?

This whole thing jams my helm badly...and unfortunately it's likely to get jammed even more badly, for I do not see the situation getting better.
