    Maybe because many of the Muslim Americans immigrants are Arab/Asian? Somalis are African.
    Wouldn't know, nor do I care. Not my country who has to deal with it

    As long as degenerate companies and countries keep financing these scumbags their reach will grow bigger than just the Indian Ocean.
    Can't you find out who paid the ransoms? It's hardly a secret. Just find ships which have been caught and then released. They paid a ransom

    Such a shame that would be ... *cough*

    Edit: Oh and I know many won't know it. But something major happened to Pirates/Somalia this last week.
    Puntland has seperated itself from TFG. What it may mean for Pirates is unknown as Puntland supports them and blocked a bill coming through "Parliament" to crack down on them

    The FBI has the Somali community in America under intense observation at all times. Neither the Somalis nor other Americans are very happy about how things have turned out.

    The Arabs and Asian Muslims in America are from the highest classes and calibers of people in the lands of their origins. The Somalis seem to be more a cross section of Somali society.

    Ahh, Somalis wouldn't like being observed. I can imagine how they'd react.
    Alot of self policing occurs in Somali communities and add to that our clans. I'm surprised US hasn't had violence/deaths between Somalis who hail from different clans. It'll happen sooner or later.

    Oh and the fact Western society has removed/weakened Somali Mothers method of discipline (physical, very physical). It's a matter of time before some of the Men fall into gangs and/or crime. But I can be wrong ofc so don't take my words as a prediction of the future.

    For generations, Somalis made a living fishing their rich waters. Families of fishermen plied the coastline with traditional dhows and motorised skiffs.

    Under the decades-long rule of Siad Barre, the country's former president, a maritime force protected the fisheries for domestic use. This force also sold lucrative licences to foreign companies that wanted to join in, the naval historian Gary Weir explained in the article, Fish, Family and Profit: Piracy in the Horn of Africa, published in the US Naval War College Review.

    That government collapsed in 1991, but the UN peacekeeping force that oversaw the country for the next four years dispatched a naval unit to continue to monitor the waters.

    In 1995 they withdrew. Foreign firms began swooping into the country's waters with little fear of repercussion.

    At first the Somali "pirates" consisted of fishermen who boarded the foreign vessels to accuse them of trespassing and demand compensation.

    They called themselves a coastguard and were often organised by local clan militias. The clans also began requiring foreign fishermen to buy expensive licences.
    Good for the fishermen.
    The link is particularly interesting in giving the backstory of what gave rise to the Piracy and abit about the reach of the Pirates. Not many foreigners know Pirates get information about ships from the Somali diaspora as far away as US.

    Pirates should be shot on site. Period. When word gets around on land that death is the penalty to the crime, the young guys that think they can get away with it or get rich from it will at least think twice.

    Sooner or later the hard cases will be dead and the others will be less likely to take on ships they know will kill them.

    There are no rules out there and the rest of the world should play by their rules.

    I am quite impressed. The SK ship followed the pirates for a week, waiting until exactly the right moment, then after a 5-hr gun battle, they rescued every damned hostage without a single injury. Damn. That's some fine work. Those soldiers know their stuff. I salute the hell out of them.

    The way to end Somali piracy is to hire Ethiopian mercenaries to simly move in, destroy the facilities used by the pirates, burn their villages and boats, and to kill their young men. Their young women can be sterilized so the Ethiopians don't have to kill them too. Western fingerprints wont be on this action.
