Somali ‘pirates’ support Haiti

February 5, 2010

“Somali ‘pirates’ want to send loot confiscated from rich countries to Haiti” is the translation of this story’s headline as published by Aporrea.org.
Jan. 21, 2010 (Aporrea.org) – Spokesmen for the so-called Somali “pirates” have expressed willingness to transfer part of their loot captured from transnational boats and send it to Haiti.

Leaders of these groups have declared they have links in various places around the world to help them ensure the delivery of aid without being detected by the armed forces of enemy governments.

The “pirates” typically redistribute a significant portion of their profits among relatives and the local population. In their operations, the “pirates” urge transnational corporations that own the cargo confiscated to pay back in cash, as banks cannot operate in Somalia.

“The humanitarian aid to Haiti cannot be controlled by the United States and European countries; they have no moral authority to do so. They are the ones pirating mankind for many years,” said the Somali spokesman.

Somalia, located at the eastern end of the Somalia Peninsula adjacent to the Gulf of Aden to the North and with the Indian Ocean to the east is located in a very important position in the communication routes between Asia, Africa and Europe and the Pacific.

    i believe that world community are not ready so deal with somali pirates who are obstacle to world business,because they deployed so many navel troops with their warships and so far there is no any development steps that they made.

    therefore,i would say to those navel troops bring a solution about somali pirats or leave.

    thanks
