Somali Pirates

This crap has been going on way to long.

If there were ever a reason to have a United Nations, I would think this is it.

Pirates Free Crew of Spanish Vessel

MADRID — Somali pirates released 36 crew members and their Spanish fishing vessel on Tuesday, the government here said, even as authorities said pirates had seized a tanker with a crew of 28 North Koreans.

At what cost?

officials declined to comment on reports that Spain had paid a ransom of nearly $3.5 million. Asked if a ransom had been paid, Mr. Zapatero said, “The government did what it had to do.”


That says it all.
