Default Somali Pirates

I ran into an article on bbc and thought I should post it. Although Somali piracy seems to be a serious issue in that area.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7749486.stm
As serious as it is, I just cant deny the mental picture.

Pirates with rpgs marching randomly around on the deck of some giant tanker with the crew tied up in the cabin.

What are they doing marching around with rpgs on a ship you ask?

Trying to draw the attention of the India military apparently. As they got super owned for responding over the radio by saying "well blow you up!"

It's kind of depressing that the greatest stimulus to Somalia's economy is from piracy. It's also kind of eye-opening in the sense that people [The rest of Africa?] may start realizing crime is an easy way out of economic troubles. Pretty soon the entire continent might start staging similar coup's if nothing is done.

It's not gonna work, because for one thing we are talking about disrupting trade (which is a big no-no to the powers that be). Secondly, it's oil we're talking about, and whenever access to oil is threatened the US Navy is there.

What's happening?
I keep my dreadlocks in a napkin ring
Rap and sing
Unlike the homogenous clones
I'm in to earth tones, birth stones, and erogenous zones
The more ticklish the more you have
Sitting on the curb of what used to be the burbs
And before that was Canarcie
I'm a disturbed and bitter herb
Like saltwater and parsley
