Sure, poverty can be used as a excuse now. But that is not how "piracy" began.
It was fishermen who were having their livelihood taken away from them by other
countries llegally dumping and fishing in Somali waters and took their money, so they armed themselves to ward them off.
Hence why Somalis call them coast guards. Not Pirates.
I consider the Pirates those who enter Somalia's waters to fish our god given natural resources and dump their crap in Somali waters. They thought no one would do anything.
Somalis did and now the world is getting pissy. Please.
I support those coast guards who operate in Somali waters and always will.
