Not So Happy Teen Pirate

From Comments: (JaguarRundi)

kool-aid“I feel sorry for the captured pirate, Muse. He is just a teenager who comes from a ravished land with no laws. His level of poverty is like nothing any average American can even imagine. Yes, they say he was brazen on board the ship, but he is a confused teenager.

The West ripped off Somalia by poaching and depleting their fishing waters and moreover, dumping nuclar waste in the waters! A horrible crime inflicted against the Somalis: a fishing based culture! The U.N. ignored their cries for help and assistance. They were backed into a corner, and they must survive some way. You’d do it too; let the teenager off with rehabilitation.

Let’s enter a dialogue with Somalia in a way that makes sense. Nope, we cannot conquer them and should not even attempt this. Somalis cannot be goverened, really, as they are derived from nomadic peoples.

There is no working government as of now. So, for now, let the pirates go, insurance pays the ransom. It only ads a few cents per item. They need a livelihood. I am sure the pirated loot of wealth gets spread around a lot more than in our culture of greed. We need a long term solution for Somalia. We shall work it out, but we must accept responsibility for how we have in part, created the Somalia that exists that generated the pirates.

My prayers go out to Muse, the captured pirate who is being tried in the U.S., and to Somalia.”
