"Drowned pirates

Five of the pirates reportedly drowned while making off with their share of the ransom money after their skiff was hit by high seas."


NB: my italics

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7821783.stm

I count on the BBC for moderately sophisticated propaganda and obfuscated lies and omission. Never mind the sorriness of the American supplied and organized Ethiopian occupation, or the labeling of combatants as pirates, but Auntie Beeb is just too over the top here, Peter Dobbie couldn't even look the camera in the eye while reporting this one. Obviously they were murdered by Saudi money, or Chinese, or Americans. BBC isn't even fun anymore.

"...an ancient form of terrorism, piracy, in a modern form, asserting itself off the Horn of Africa...."

-Hillary Clinton,
Senate Confirmation Hearing, 13/1/09


She then goes on to condemn "autocracy is Zimbabwe." Autocracy must sound scary to most viewers who have no idea what it means. We of course know that it means self-reliance and independence. Those are obviously dangerous things. They are also core elements in the national philosophy of North Korea and Myanmar, hence the reason, along with Zimbabwe and others, they are treated as wicked states, embargo, economic warfare, threats of invasion, you know the game.

Clinton then goes on to say that America needs to "...reduce our foreign dependency." What's good for the goose is not good for the gander?!

Some forms of Islam do not seem to be able to leave others alone; but somehow I doubt Somalis or Afghans would have been telling me what to do any time soon.

Body washes ashore! But, hmm... no pictures. I for one will believe it when I see it. And with 153,000 USD no less!

http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/somali-pirates-body-washes-ashore-with-215000-in-cash/1405356.aspx

What is this number? 153?

Edit: "$153000 (£100000)"
