Knaan, a Somalian born rapper gives his take on Somali pirates. He says that the Somali pirates are really the equivalent of the US Coast Guard (sure, our Coast Guard always captures ships and holds the Captain and crew hostage for ransom..GTHOH). He says that American and French ships dump containers of toxic nuclear waste in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean which will disintergrate and wash to shore within 100 years. Doesn't Knaan know that PSBO is the savior of the whole wide world and our "greenest" POTUS yet (not my words, Van Johnson's at the State of the Black Union).
Because my blog is balanced (wide smirk) I am posting this video. I am sure what Knaan is saying has some merit but seriously Somalia is in a state of anarchy and has been for 20 years...there is no central government there. So how on earth he can claim these pirates are noble in their efforts based on that fact alone perplexes me.
H/T to EVF II
I am inclined to believe as mankind is fallen and depraved that however noble the original intent of these rag tag fisherman who fancied themselves guards of the Somalian coast, they have since devolved into a band of common thieves with no purpose other than personal gain. Knaan isn't entirely accurate in saying the there have been no murders by these pirates although according to the International Maritime Bureau (IMB)they are rare:"IMB statistics indicate that the murder of hostages held by Somali pirates is rare. Attacks in this region are ordinarily economically motivated, in pursuit of a ransom. If the murder report is accurate it would represent a serious escalation in the violence against kidnapped seafarers." (Source)
I think Obama acolytes may find themselves in a bit of a kerfuffle. I mean how can our greenest President ever reconcile beating up the East Africans who are only protecting their coast from ships dumping toxic nuclear waste? Especially our devoted "pro-black" racism chasers, how on earth can they reconcile PSBO getting tough on Africans trying to protect the very cradle of civilization?
Knaan also has an interesting take on the Somalian Terrorists....
My take-- radical young people who serve as the useful idiots of Al-Queda and/or Hamas punch drunk on empty rhetoric of "Hope & Change" only in Arabic.
