Something seemed very odd about the whole situation. Like ot all was being brought to light. The situation with Somoli pirates where a ship tugged the dingy around for a long time and then they where shot after a while seemed very odd. Some wierd odd part of the back of my brain thought that maybe some wierd **** was going on and this all was simply a way to prevent unfortunate people form escaping their homelad. But I like to think of many different scenarios when thinking about anything.

Old odd reports of Somali thieve stealing a cell phone from a reporter but the body laguage of the situation screamed of a situation of the reporter just letting the guy look at it and hold it.

Ships being abbandoned near enough for Somali people to find in hopes they will attempt to rescue and use them.

It seems like it happened so long ago I can't remember all the odd things about it.

If this was so, perhaps these pirates ought to stop shooting at the ships they are trying to get a ride on, I think the ship would probably stop and give them a helping hand.

There may be pissed off people in that area with guns that seek vengance or loot. But not everyone with a dingy and a loose hanging 2 year old shirt is a pirate.

Hell, in Somalia anyone with a dingy and a two year old shirt is considered rich.:roll:
