Seemingly everyday for the past 6 months it seems like there has been a new pirate attack off the coast of Somalia. Nono, I shit you not. Just take a look at this:
Deal with that. And the problem is not only getting worse. Yesterday the Indian navy sank a boat and today a band of pirates that attacked an oil tanker is demanding $25mm in order to free the ship.
So alas now in this world that is seemingly in constant flux we can now agree on two things:
1) A Polish firing squad arranged in a circle is not the most logical setup
2) Pirates that do not resemble Johnny Depp are not a good thing.
