Word of caution for Somali Pirates

While reading an article in allafrica.com, regarding the killing of the Somali pirates by the U.S., this comment posted caught my eye.

The pirates and Somalia really need to examine the lessons of Afghanistan before targeting the United States. The Taliban had a pretty good deal. It ran a nation, dominated its residents, and had full access to a national treasury. Today the Taliban live in caves and murder fellow Muslims. It was all because they harbored a group that attacked the United States on September 11.

A Somalia that protects pirates, pirates who attack the United States, may have a very short future! Somalia's friends could get it in a lot of trouble. Watch for the unmanned drones...


Interesting viewpoint.
