"Sirius Star is three times the size of a US aircraft carrier and shows how they are successfully expanding their operations,'' Christensen said. He added the operation demonstrated a new level of sophistication as the attackers had to scale the 10-metre high sides of the vessel. Previous attacks have occurred within 200 nautical miles of land."

The seizure of a US bound oil tanker can only bring a smile on my face as I think how annoyed the Americans will be. The repercussions for those plucky boys who carried this out will be most severe, but I salute their guts and audacity...

Wassim,

I read your post on Osool before I read this post and I found it very interesting. Speaking of Osool, don't you think those plucky Somalis may forgotten their Osool and lapsed into capitalistic greed? yet you salute them...

Thank you Abu Kareem, I'm glad the article interested you. Perhaps you'd like to tell me where the Osool are in the livelihoods of these one-time fishermen being taken from them by greedy multi-nationals, or their country being invaded by pro-US Ethiopian forces just as they were about to have some semblance of peace, before asking me whether they conform to the Osool as you'd like them to be.
