Somali Pirates

I have read a couple articles recently which actually don’t paint the modern day Somali pirates in a negative light, and wanted to share this one that I’ve most recently read. And no, it’s not about defending their actions or what they are doing, but it certainly paints a picture which is different from that which we read in the press.

So go and read the article and let me know what you think.

If you don’t want to read this article, basically what it says is that since the collapse of the Somali government, the lack of oversight in the area is now being exploited by first world countries. Specifically by dumping waste and over fishing the areas that are around Somalia. Hopefully they’re not doing these two things in the same place because that would just be stupid, but nonetheless, these actions are further hurting the now helpless Somalis by polluting their coastal waters and leaving virtually nothing left in the sea for the coastal population to make a living or even eat for that matter.
