      Desperate times call for desperate measures. If your national survival
      is at stake, do you think hurt feelings of a non-combatant (especially
      one with a weak military) is much of an impediment?

      It may have been illegal to board American ships to get them but was the
      need so great that it was justified anyway? A defense based on the
      wartime needs of Britain is not necessarily based on legality.
