As a follow on to TBirdNZ's posting on pirates, this is the flip side for the local community. It seems times are booming in parts of Somalia - due to the income being spent in the areas by sea pirates!!!

How do you turn an economy legitimate when it's built on pirate income and there ws NOTHING, prior to that??????

Luckily, I don't have to answer such questions, only pose them.

Soon they'll be buying a distressed US bank so that they can also feed at the bailout trough, no real piracy necessary. As others have already been doing.

Step one will be to establish a functional national government. Anyone want to tackle that task?
