Sorry to disagree with you on this one, Reckless... you are correct that these Somali fishermen are upset with interlopers fishing
what they consider to be their fishing grounds but the siezing and ransoming of yachts, their crew and large freighters and tankers takes firepower, planning and coordination, equipment
and fairly sophisticated communication which you don't find in a third world backwater which Somalia
is. There are well financed and powerful folks behind these pirate acts, not just poor, indigent fishermen.
