I am posting a selection of pictures from main stream media featuring the allegedly fearsome and oh so problematic "pirates"
(more somali pirates and their boats)
(somali pirates and their boat apprehended by the French)
Anyone notice anything about these pirates boats?? Anything odd at all ??
Like, how small and crappy they all are ?
Compared to the ships they are boarding?!!!
Do these massive ships stop and wait for the 'Pirates' to board???
When the pirates in their dilapidated heaps, throw up grappling hooks and ropes to board the boats (unless they have rocket packs) can no one throw the rope back or cut it??? How about just moving along?
Just wondering if the big deal about the pirates is to sell a land invasion of Somalia to the western populace.
I mean Somalia isn't exactly filled with good memories for the US or Canada.
Soooo, how to get the western audience 'on board'(pun intended) with an attack?
Create a boogey man?? Or in this case, boogey men, PIRATES !
Like Saddams nookular arsenal , his wmd's that didn't exist.
Does the real threat from these half-starved fellows hold strongest in the mind of a gullible? western audience.
