    If international trade is anything to go by - the irradiated fish aren't destined for European plates. They'll be shipped back to Africa for sale in tins at 10 times the price.

    Somali pirates are small fry when compared to the shenanigans of international corporations. Those are the real pirates.

    The jolly roger was swapped for corporate logos years ago.

    Hmm, then only the pirates can afford it.... This makes no sense.

    No one forces you to buy thier products. I don't see the issue.

    That's not what I'm saying - however malpractice is rife. From multinationals ripping minerals out of Congo to drugs companies selling banned drugs like Thalidomide over the counter all over Africa.

    These are products that are banned in Europe or the US but are on sale in many parts of Africa, and it's not the governments or presidents asking for these goods to be sold there.

    You'd be surprised what people can buy in Africa and why - there's often a "kudos" to buying western goods just for one-upmanship purposes.

    True, but they aren't always aware of the issues involved. They aren't always aware the drugs they can get over the counter should be prescribed by trained doctors only or that the cars they buy may have been stolen in europe or the US within the last two weeks or even that the cars may have been insurance write-offs being resold to unsuspecting buyers.

    Agreed, personally I'd like to see most multinational corporations plundering Africa have the jolly roger as part of their business logo. Then at least we could have honesty.

    You're talking about a really massive coast line, 2000 miles long or some crap. Parts of the coast line have been contaminated with toxic waste, other parts have been over-fished by commercial fisherman. All due to a virtually non-existent government and little to no regulation along with a willingness of other countries to come in and take advantage. It use to be possible to survive up and down that coast via a fishing village lifestyle. Now, not so much. How much of that is due to over fishing and how much is due to toxic waste is unknown because nobody seems to care enough to go in there and figure it out. Fisherman from Somalia have unsuccessfully appealed to both the UN and the international community. Barrels of toxic waste washed up on the shores after the Tsunami. Still, no accountability or attempt to clean up parts of the coast.

    Seems now the world is coming together to unite against the troublesome pirates. Geez.
