A US bound oil tanker has been taken by pirates off the Somalia coast. It seems these pirates didn’t learn their lesson. Piracy has increased this year. It’s become an international menace. Currently there are over a dozen ships held by pirates off the Somali coast. So will anyone do anything about these acts of war? Doesn’t appear so. While patrols have increased no based (yes they have some) have been hit.
So who are these pirates? Well it seems they are linked to Al-Qaida controlled areas of Somali, you remember the country we cut an ran from, the precursor to 911 when terrorist believed that the United States and western nations had no will to fight. Folks what we do and how we react to terror has a direct effect on the future.
How we react to terror nation states is the same. Just saying….
