Make way for the new pseudo rich, the CUPs (cashed up Pirates) are in port. Seems the hottest catch in town is a successful Somali pirate. Eligible (and I assume some that aren’t) Somali women are flocking to the port town of Basaso in the hope of snaring themselves a rich hubby. A Somali pirate is a perfect catch, job only keeps him away a short time and he is guaranteed to bring home the bacon $US, thanks to ransom paying white dudes.My goodness, it is like an Aladdin’s cave out there. Grab your buddies, some rubber dinghies, a few high powered weapons, put on a scrowly face and find yourself a super tanker. The rest is basically negotiation, so pick a good team leader. And think girls, if you play your cards right you’ll have your very own pirate just like Keira Knightley!
When you are Somali pirates it isn’t smart to try and attack a NATO ship. The pirates apparently mistook the FGS Spessart for a commercial merchant ship and tried to attack the naval vessel.Whoops wrong boat…run for it boys. Poor fools were then pursued by three ships, a frigate, a helicopter and a plane. Geez those seven pirates must have been cursing the day. Hmm, talk about taking this piracy seriously, isn’t that like one warcraft for each pirate? It was reported when they finally boarded the pirate ship they seized “several” weapons. Hmm is that like two or three? Bless, a NATO spokesman said: “Poor judgment by the pirates turned out to be a real opportunity for seven nations representing three task forces to work together and strike a momentous blow for maritime safety and security.” I think I would have dropped “momentous”.
