Somali pirates make black Blackbeards

Abdul Hassan cuts quite the Blackbeard imageGilbert and Sullivan pointed it out: One man’s captain of industry is another man’s pirate. Which is the pirate depends on who’s making the law.

The global corporate media is up in arms about the Somali pirates, in actuality a militia mounted by Somalia’s fishermen to protect their fisheries from international predators. Elsewhere, illegal commercial fishing ships are considered “pirates.” The Somali protectors are called the
Central Regional Coast Guard.

Elsewhere in the world, when national fisheries are threatened by lawless fishing, privateers can capture illegal fishing ships and earn bounties of approximately one million dollars per ship. What a coincidence that’s the figure we’re given about the ransoms demanded by the Somali “pirates” who are seizing international ships off their coast.

Setting aside of course the opportunistic actions by the Somali renegade entrepreneurs to prey upon ANY international vessel, on the pretext that NONE are licensed in Somali waters, since even the temporary US-backed government there is unlicensed, here’s the reason Western warships can’t just blow them out of the water.

Setting aside too, that even as Somalia is lawless, the waters inside Somali’s maritime boarder are sovereign. A foreign navy may declare its helpful intentions, but it has no jurisdiction to order Somalian boaters about.

I’ve seen many varieties of fishermen skiffs. So I puzzled at the uniformity of the pirate raiders in their long white open boats. Have you? Because the pirate enterprise is a uniform flotilla of 100 of such boats. It’s how they can tell each other from would be interloping privateers, and it also gives them their cover of legitimacy.

Foreign would-be sheriffs can’t target the Central Regional Coast Guard because it is basically a militia mounted by the local fishermen, to enforce their claim to their home waters.

Fisheries the world over are regulated. Wherever a government is not capable of enforcing its laws, predatory opportunities arise. Since Somalia fell to war and lawlessness, foreign fishing boats have been poaching the Somali coast without limit. Local fishermen complain that the fisheries are being depleted, but there is no authority to save them.

  1. You know, I wish you guys luck. The sooner your filthy plans for the mogrelization of America happens, the sonner the system will collapse, and the sooner those of us with weapons and training will round you hippie pieces of garbage up and liquidate you.

  2. Yeah, allowing you Peckerwoods in was a spectacularly bad idea.

    But, hey, somebody who wants to use Blackwater’s Baby Killing Goon Squads as his heroes and part of his screen name would put a link to their REAL webpage, instead of a lame-ass “” which points to a Placeholder site called

    So, what’s your real deal with black dudes, “blackwaterphile”?

    Did you try to pass off as an Aryan Nations coward scumbag in the pen, the REAL Aryan Brotherhood wouldn’t back your stupid shit up and you wound up being a black dude’s bitch just to survive?

    Yeah, them poor misunderstood Blackwater Baby-Killing Goon Squad Chickenshit Coward Scum… man, they never get a break, y’know?

    They get a carte blanche Death Warrant for any (Usually helpless civilian) they want to kill, go and kill a few hundred Babies and run and hide behind the U.S. Army when the going get tough….

    And killing a few dozen or a few hundred, nobody knows for sure since Blackwater was the group that did the counting, a “countless” number of AMERICANS in New Orleans…

    Then the next thing you know those poor, picked upon misunderstood Blackwater Baby-Killing Goon Squad Chickenshit Coward Scum… they get picked on by the Liberal Media and called nasty names like ” Blackwater Baby-Killing Goon Squad Chickenshit Coward Scum…”

    Some heroes you got there, pahdner.

    Of course, dissing you instead of the Blackwater Baby-Killing Goon Squad Chickenshit Coward Scum, well, it’s not nearly as much fun because unlike the Aryan Brotherhood Losers or the Blackwater Baby-Killing Goon Squad Chickenshit Coward Scum, you probably don’t have enough of a Gang behind you to back your pathetic shit up, in case you ever get angry enough to go huntin’ for somebody…

    You wouldn’t, therefore, be able to do a Fuckin’ Thing About It.

    Just like when you were in jail. Bitch.

  3. Just wanted to say that I really enjoy your site and some of the ads on the side such as the Gaza Ad and this article.

    So many people, see the world through a sniper scope. So many heartless and empty shells of men and women. How can you cry for 9/11 when you ignore the 227,000 children starved to death from 91-97 due to UN sanctions on Iraq?

    Some I people I swear, they only feel anything if its those they love who bleed. Yet everyone else is fair game.

    Personally I m a religious individual and I believe that God treats you in the same manner you treat others. When you remain merciless and unforgiving, don’t expect it anything different on Judgement day.
