PIRATES ROAM THE SOMALI COAST



Remember Somalia which Clinton exited so precipitously? It is infested with pirates as well as terrorists:

Somali gunmen who hijacked a UN-chartered food aid vessel in June have seized another commercial ship off the eastern coast of the lawless Horn of Africa nation, militia officials said on Monday. . . .

In its weekly piracy report issued on Tuesday, the International Maritime Bureau said at least 21 attacks had been recorded off the Somali coast since March 15 and urged ships in the area to stay as far as possible from the shore.

Does any quick exit strategist remember Voltaire's saying:"Once a philosopher, twice a pervert?"
