What you don't know about "our" pirates, Yes we did this to Somalia!

As Pirates get worse China races to Join the Fray! Why we don't condemn our Somali pirates!

China steps in to the pirate fray

The other day my good friend Brother Tim pointed out that we were being lied to about the Somali Pirates. I hope you read it at his link but I knew the fishing industry died however I did not know we killed it by dumping nuclear and other industrial waste there. Brother pointed out that Somali war lords were bought off to dump hazardous waste in their waters. A Swiss firm called Achair Partners, and an Italian waste company called Progresso, made a deal with Ali Mahdi, that they could dump containers of waste material in Somali waters. These European companies were said to be paying Warlords about $3 a ton, where as to properly dispose of waste in Europe costs about $1000 a ton. Why we don't condemn our Somali pirates

I heard the fish were dead there and the fishermen took to pirating but it figures someone has been dumping nuclear and other toxic waste there. I do not blame them for pirating but stealing stuff is one thing. Ransoming for millions and disrupting the world is another but we disrupted them. They are supporting whole villages. I don't know what the answer is. They even take ships that are feeding their people. What do you do avoid the area and let them starve? I don't know!

It really bothers me that it seems whenever I delve into something it is always capitalism behind the problem. We keep hearing the virtues of Capitalism but our own problems and I am seeing around the world are caused by Capitalism run Amok. The great system of Capitalism is destroying our world. We have got to reign it in and control it. I was concerned with Bush's warmongering and the world marshaling forces to take him on. I was concerned about Israel instigating war too thinking they were the worlds primary problem. I thought they were controlling the US and we were going to end up destroying the world at their bid.

* We are so brain washed we never hear or see the truth. I noticed behind every frigging conflict including Gaza and Georgia and Afghanistan was oil and other energy sources so I just took the normal course of blaming all our problems on oil and other energy sources as the world postured to move into the future. Stupid me! In regard to our problems here I keep saying we see the enemy and he is us but son of a gun it is! We are the problem of the entire world. Capitalism! It is out of control and will destroy the world unless we reign it in. What say you!

Thank you for telling the truth. When I first read about the Somalian Pirates I thought to myself, hmmm, I wonder what we did to them to cause this. We have been harming people in other countries for all of our history and then we get all indignant when they fight back. Just think what we would do if another country destroyed our ability to feed ourselves. The way to stop the Somali pirates is to assist them to feed themselves.

Welcome and thank you! We should have guessed. We never hear the truth. This is just another part of the lie that is life today.
What you said about harming other country's is true and why it kills me that Bush always said we did nothing wrong! We have done everything wrong! I am stymied what to do now as the pirates even jump the ships that want to feed them.

The cruelty of all this is that it is so much cheaper to feed the world than militarily dominate it.

But their wouldn't be profits for our military industrial complex owners.

American values...

The problem is that there are no international environmental laws. Once a ship (and it doesn't matter what flag they fly) is in international waters it can dump whatever it wants. The Russians have been dumping radioactive waste off the coast of vladivostok for years. So it's not just capitalism that's destroying the planet. We ship our electronic waste to China only to have the toxins dumped on the ground and in the water. And even after undercover investigations it still goes on.
If we reign it in we will have to do so on a global scale not just capitalists or communists but all nations.
It's interesting to note that under Bush several chemicals that were considered toxic and still are in other countries are now considered safe.

WTF is wrong with us? I can only hope Obama knows that and gets the entire world to see it. Man I'm telling you, we can do this if the entire so called civilized world will wake up but I don't know. Unity and survival into the future as a whole has to be the goal of everyone not just Obama!

I raised 4 men 3 of them are lifers. I taught them all to engage brain before acting. You can be your own best friend or your own worst enemy. Man is his own worst enemy.

Those aid ships, are evidently not feeding them.

Watch the film, Darwin's Nightmare'. It's a documentary on Lake Victoria.

In one portion of the film, humanitarian aid is covered. What they show is...

1. The government owned by the IMF usually takes the food and resells it. The people don't get the food, unless there's a photo op going.
2. These drops are often just cover, for supplying munitions.
3. Often as not, planes and ships bringing aid, arrive empty, and load up with cargo, like food, which is shipped to Europe.

Watch the film. Watch it twice. It will scar you forever.

At a local watering hole an acquaintance was very excited by our Navy Seals and their skill at killing people. He was really excited that we might start bombing African villages next. He didn't catch the hint when I said, "Yup, slaughtering people and stealing their stuff, is what we do best. Jesus must be so proud."

But now, we really have nothing else do we? Our politicians are stripping our country, like looters doing a smash and grab.

All we have left to give us hope, is the dream that we might get to watch villages get bombed to oblivion on HDTV. Maybe we'll get a glimpse of a burning woman running with a dead baby? Yee Haw!

We have failed our servicemen in insuring that they only fight in wars that must be engaged, because there is no other option. We continue to risk their lives and health, pretending that wars fought for nothing but pillage, are being fought for honorable causes.

We could do so much better.

But as a nation we love the blood sport. We love seeing people slaughtered. We love watching green screen footage of snipers shooting civilians in the back, as they try to flee the war zone.

These things define us as a people.

Hi Wease
It absolutely blows me away that the US gets away with calling themselves caring and compassionate while not really giving a shit. Everything is a facade of concern, If we really cared we could really make a difference. We the people care but we do not matter. I am going to see if I can find that movie so thanks man!

I just read the Wikipedia on Darwin's nightmare. WTF?
