It takes real guts and courage for those plucky Somali pirates to do what they do. I don't care what anybody says, the man who cannot afford a living for a day or cannot feed his family is insane if he doesn't grab the nearest weapon and does something about it. Granted that many of them might be scumbags but at least they are no longer killing each other. Plus anything which drives the Americans and Europeans crazy cannot be a bad thing.

You might like this. It really changed my opinion. It's called "You Are Being Lied to About Pirates", although I hate the author. But anyway...

Thanks for the link Sasa.

Jabi,
Yeah I agree, Mr Hari has a penchant for writing ridiculous stories but every now and then he comes up with something good. I guess if you throw mud at glass enough times it will stick.

KJ,
Thanks for stopping by, couldn't agree more.
