Somalian Pirates . . .

If this private problems not be solved soon, they will be able to buy bigger guns and with bigger guns come bigger problems for everyone. They have to put sea mines 50 miles near land. What do you think ?

I believe I think, so therefore, I think I believe !

Unhappy

What's with the new rumor saying that Cap. Phillips told in private that it is all a Media mistake. That is not Somalians, but some aliens who took his ship.

Meanwhile Somalians starve and their government keeps looting.

HOW DID THE PIRACY START?
Little mention is made that since Marxist President Siad Barre's Militay Government was ousted in 1991, Somalia has been unable to protect its coastal waters.

HOW DID THE PIRACY START?


• Somalia has said that piracy was merely a symptom of a wider problem, illegal fishing and dumping. The collapse of the Somali government in 1991 heralded the opening of fishing floodgates and foreign fishing vessels from all corners of the world invaded the area with the sole aim of plundering Somalia's marine resources.

• Militia were boarding boats on initially justifiable grounds to protect their waters from illegal entry by ships from countries including Korea, Italy, Spain and Thailand.

• Hundreds of illegal fishing boats were in Somali waters at any one time engaged in a $90 million a year business, mainly in tuna, the Kenya-based Seafarers Assistance Programme (SAP), reported in 2006. Toxic and industrial waste was also being dumped there, while there was a roaring trade in illegal charcoal.

If only they had used gas instead of charcoal. I shutter to think of how much simpler life would be.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Yeah, he was listening Styx's Come Sail Away when he was hijacked.

I'm sailing away
Set an open course for the virgin sea
For I've got to be free
Free to face the life that's ahead of me
On board I'm the captain
So climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow
On every shore
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try
To carry on
I look to the sea
Reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends
And the dreams we had
We lived happily forever
So the story goes
But somehow we missed out
On the pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on
A gathering of angels appeared above our heads
They sang to us this song of hope and this is what they said
Come sail away
Come sail away
Come sail away with me
I thought that they were angels
But to my surprise
We climbed aboard their starship
And headed for the skies
