A group of Somali pirates have made a poor choice for their most recent victims. They attacked the Somme, the flagship of the French contingent patrolling the region. The pirates were a little surprised to find bullets flying back towards them. We need to see more of this sort of thing.

There appears to be another side to this story.

That may be the case for some of them, but it s clear a lot of them are in it just for the money and are taking ships hostage and demanding ransoms. There is also collusion among the pirates. This is an interesting piece of the business of it all.

Also, while we are generally understanding of someone who steals a loaf of bread to feed his starving children, we do not condone or decriminalise such acts. Providing such people with better alternatives is the way to go, not letting them get away with violence and crime.
