IT'S LEGAL IF WE SAY IT IS:

Forcing down the Bolivian president's plane was an act of piracy (John Pilger, 8 July 2013, Online Opinion)

The forcing down of Bolivian President Evo Morales's plane - denied air space by France, Spain and Portugal, followed by his 14-hour confinement while Austrian officials demanded to "inspect" his aircraft for the "fugitive" Edward Snowden - was an act of air piracy and state terrorism. It was a metaphor for the gangsterism that now rules the world and the cowardice and hypocrisy of bystanders who dare not speak its name.

He's lucky the Vincennes wasn't around.
