    2010 was a record breaking year... for Somali Pirates

    Pirates took a record (seriously, records for hostages? someone tracks this ever year?) 1,181 hostages in 2010:

    Pirates took a record 1,181 hostages in 2010 as ship hijackings in waters off Somalia escalated, a global maritime watchdog said Tuesday.

    Attackers seized 53 vessels worldwide last year — all but four off the coast of Somalia — according to the International Maritime Bureau's piracy reporting center in Kuala Lumpur.

    The number of hostages and vessels taken "are the highest we have ever seen" since the center began monitoring attacks in 1991, its director, Pottengal Mukundan, said in a statement. "The continued increase in these numbers is alarming," he said.

    The Somali attacks accounted for 1,016 hostages held for ransom, the center said. Somali pirates are currently holding 31 vessels and 713 crew members of various nationalities after hijacking another four ships so far this year, it said.

    I always wanted to go hiking in somalia, learn about new cultures, meet new people and absorb all that life and culture has to offer.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I still do not understand how the international community or at least the US navy has not handled this.

    We have the largest fleet on the planet, use it.

    It has been American ships and citizens. The problem needs to be addressed for the good of people, not just Americans.
