    I don't know exactly where to post this...

    i guess classified as goons ang pirates hehe

    Satellite image of the hijacked tanker Sirius Star:



    the Saudi supertanker was hijacked 12 days ago.

    It is the biggest prize ever seized by Somali pirates.

    crew includes 19 pinoys

    ransom demand for the ship was $30M, then lowered to $15M.

    negotiations still ongoing.

    It is now a big business in Somalia. And, there are now a lot of pirates there, and a whole lot more on training.... There was this CNN Features Report where a housewife was very proud of the material gains they got from her husband, who is a pirate. She now wears expensive watch; they have TV and refrigerator. And the economy in their area is booming because of the ransom money they're getting.... It is a crime against property, but they're mighty proud of it!

    They need to drop an atom bomb there (not really superbig, something small like the little boy). Then let's see if there will still be pirates.

    Scratch that, just a full scale invasion of Somalia (including its waters) might be enough. Burn all the pirates then we'll all be fine.

    This also is an opportunity to test a new weapon of mass destruction (mini Hydrogen Bomb?) so it will not be a surprise if they use something new there during the rescue of the victims.

    Hindi lang sa dagat... sa mga oil field nila uso din ang kinapping... lupit ng mga Pirata na to pero parang wala pang nababalita na US base na barko na hijack nila??? Iniisip ko lang wala ba talagan alternate route para hindi sila dumaan ng somalian sea
