Pirate links

I had the pleasure of being driven home by a Somali taxi driver last night. He blames the piracy on the Italian half of Somalia - apparently he comes from the more civilized north which was colonized by the British. We laughed at how absurd it was to steal $100 Million worth of oil!? The taxi driver pointed out that it was crude oil so they couldn't even bring it back to Somalia for consumption!
