Somali pirates receive record ransom for ships' release
They are believed to have been paid a record $9.5m (£5.8m) for Samho Dream, a South Korean oil tanker, and nearly $2.8m (£1.7m) for the Golden Blessing, a Singaporean flagged ship.

"We are now counting our cash," a pirate who gave his name as Hussein told Reuters news agency. "Soon we shall get down from the ship."

Should have been dealt with like we did. Shoot the fuckers. I'd say that's about the ONLY thing that POS has done right since being in office.

A bounty on pirates would be effective to eliminate the piracy problem.

Somali pirates = code for Islamic extremists. But the media never points that fact out at all.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Maybe those tankers and other ships that have to go near the region should all be armed with topedos so they can blow the pirates out of the water.

Let them count their dead instead. It is not as if they do anything good with the money. It is all just greed and terror. If they are going to act like savages, then they should be treated as such.

We give the Israelis billions of $$$ every year in ransom so they don't nuke us.

Calm down folks
Somali pirates are just being used as useful idiots. TPTB are using them to further militarize the region, that includes false flags arising from Yemen to the north. They "TPTB" want full control of the straights and surrounding region.

Huge mistake.

Now the Muslim pirates are not only emboldened, they are well funded and know who to hit again.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed...

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Re: Somali pirates receive record ransom for ships' release
Hmmm... how do we know that a given hostaged ship's captain/crew aren't getting kickbacks? "Hey, our bosses at ABC Shipping can afford $10M, ask for that instead of the paltry $5M ransom you're asking and let's split the difference. We're carrying such nice cargo too, ya know..."

Yeah, plus the illegal dumping of toxic waste in Somali waters. Maybe it's just cheaper to pay the pirates than to dispose of it "legally".
