Long Live Captain Jack Sparrow – sort of

 

Modern Day Pirates in Somalia

Modern Day Pirates in Somalia

 

 

Pirates have been cruising and hijacking huge tankers off the coast of Somalia in record numbers this months; the count is up to nine! But these pirates aren’t armed with wooden pistols, crooked smiles or trusty parrots perched upon their shoulders; these pirates are poor Somalian men equipped with insane modern weaponry, speedboats, and satellite phones. 

Among the hijacked tankers one is completely surrounded by the U.S. Military mainly because it just happens to carry enough tanks, and artillery to run a small military, and the other, which was on trek to the US from Saudi Arabia, just so happens to carry $ 100 million worth of crude oil
