    Yes indeed. Not pirates at all! But the new freedom fighters... championing clean waters, fishing rights, and the health and welfare of the Somali people....

    I enjoyed this story...

    When asked why the pirates needed $20 million to protect themselves from hunger, Mr. Sugule laughed and said, “Because we have a lot of men.”
    bwahahahaha

    They are sort of fascinating. For a bunch of fishing people in a desolate village to so successfully take back their seas is rather incredible if you think about it.

    I know! They have balls that is for sure.
    My jaw dropped the first time the hijacking occured.

    I couldn't believe it then and i still can't believe the big ass ships are being owned by a fishing boat

    I know right? Exactly how do some village people in piss poor Africa manage to hijack -with a few dinghys - a massively huge ship which carries a cargo of tanks, grenades, guns, and ammunition??

    It's almost like they deserve to win because it's so preposterous that they've been so ridiculously successful.

    Re: What to do with a captured pirate

    I have been pondering that question for a long time.
    How do Somalis in a war torn country and second hand weapons outwit the west's navy and steal ships and then sucessfully get ransoms from them?

    I swear, they need a medal or something.
    The most amusing hijacking so far is that they stole a ship full of weapons and tanks

    Well by now -after so many successes- they are fully equipped with money, weaponry, GPS, computers; the whole nine yards. I think the dinghys are actually a preferable means of boarding a ship for hijack because the ships are so large and the crews are so small that it's easier to sneak up on them. So I get how they're doing it now.

    But at some point, in the beginning, some men had to begin this piracy with nothing but their big ass balls to back them up.

    Why shouldn't they have the prettiest wives in the village?

    Re: What to do with a captured pirate

    They certaintly deserve the prettiest women with those =D

    Well yeah, they have actually brought modern equipment now but at the beginning they had historic guns that was probably in a museum anywhere else in the world.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to how to stop the pirating? I bet it'll steadily increase

    Well, not the best looking somali men i've seen ... lol

    Puntland not accepting bribes? I call bull****.
    Inside Somalia, bribes is what keeps you alive.
    I remember giving 100 dollar notes to the police to get out of breaking the laws in Puntland

    I know. They completely need better outfits. They look like they're running around in goodwill clothes. Their dinghys always look torn to hell in pictures too. Yet they are pulling in millions of millions of dollars and tons of cargo to boot. Still, they remain completely village oriented. You'd think they'd travel and go somewhere where there's a mall for superior digs. I guess they got to work their way up to hijacking planes.
