So I've seen a few people pop up, trying to defend the pirates who have been taking ships hostage, demanding huge ransoms, and who are now saying they're going to try to kill French and Americans in retaliation for our countries retaking ships.

Well, they're now going to have to add Yemem to the list. YEMEN! I didn't even know they had a Coast Guard.

Apparently, while they still are using the pollution excuse, they are now far out away from the waters they are claiming to defend. Also, you know how most of Somalia depends on the food aid sent by the UN? In the last week alone, they've attacked 3 ships that were either delivering food, or being sent to pick up more food and bring it back.

The below article talks about how most of Somalia relies on the food aid to live. And their "pirates" are taking the releif ships hostage. Yes, this means, in the name of greed, they're starving their own people.
