Somali ‘Pirates’ want to send loot confiscated from rich countries to Haiti

Spokesmen for the so-called “Somali pirates” have expressed willingness to transfer part of their loot captured from transnational boats and send it to Haiti.

Leaders of these groups have declared they have links in various places around the world to help them ensure the delivery of aid without being detected by the armed forces of enemy governments.

The “pirates” typically redistribute a significant portion of their profits among relatives and the local population. In their operations, the “pirates” urge transnational corporations that own the cargo confiscated to pay back in cash as banks can not operate in Somalia.

”The humanitarian aid to Haiti can not be controlled by the United States and European countries; they have no moral authority to do so. They are the ones pirating mankind for many years,” said the Somali spokesman.

Somalia, located at the eastern end of the Somalia Penisula adjacent to the Gulf of Aden to the North and with the Indian ocean to the east, is located in a very important position in the communication routes between Asia, Africa and Europe and the Pacific.

    This made me laugh walaahay, these pirates are mad they are trying to be modern day Robinhoods .. classic

  • O G

    Very funny. I think the UN should consider this and get back some of that money to feed Haitians.

  • Jubba

    hahahaha this is funny and brave move by the so called pirates, this is what I wanted to hear because I entirely agree with them. The Americans are just going to Haiti to loot not help, we all know it.

      This is how America became wealthy, taking advantage of suffering of others, ask them and they will tell you it all became during World War II, when they came back almost ten times as wealthy and powerful because of the sufferings of people in Europe.

      They continue to profit from sufferings of others around the world including Haiti, Afghanistan, Somalia, south Sudan, etc.

    Actually, AMERICA became wealthy and rich because of hard work and determination to succeed. It is these pirates that taking advantage of others.

    You guys SERIOUSLY need a lesson in history and to stop listening to the Islamo-nazis who obviously have brain washed you to believe that AMERICA is evil and responsible for this, or that.

    We are there in those countries to STOP the non-sense of the fundamentalists of blowing up schools, killing non-muslims/muslims alike, and mistreating women like cattle.

    We came back 10 times richer because of our management of the economy and NOT exploitation of other countries. Learn your history properly before making ignorant statements.

      America the greatest thieves and robbers of the world calling others pirates when it's not serving their interest, America the greatest terrorist the world has ever seen, calling others terrorist because they chose to stand up to the American monster. What a great land!

      Since America came to power the world became more violent, more homosexuals, more droughts, more pollutions, more natural disasters than ever before – a sign of America spreading corruption and unlawful things on earth.

      This is America for me and nothing can change my views because I have lived these days and witnessed the American atrocity around the world my self.

      Im glade China is replacing them now. Bye United States of Monster.

    Interesting article. Rhodimus has some reasonable arguments. People should always be careful about speaking in general terms. I do believe there are many good Americans who are genuine and hardworking. Trust me I happen to know many of them. Further any sort of violence hearts and undermines human existence. I rather have the worst peace then the most just war/violence.

    But that is not the point here. Rhodimus talks about history but I think he/she should take a deeper look into the same history he//she is referring to. The manifestation of global engagements today is a product of a sense of historical oppression injustice and eagerness to hold on to hegemony. That history is well documented and I believe Rhodimus can learn a lot from that.

    But that is not the point here. The manifestations of global engagements are a product of history of global domination and hegemony coupled with feelings of oppression and injustice – in its wider sense. Not sure what history Rhdodimus is referring to but some context would be fitting.
