An article on the modern-day pirate by the BBC.

Once a pirate makes his fortune, he tends to take on a second and third wife – often very young women from poor nomadic clans, who are renowned for their beauty.

“They promote the use of drugs – chewing khat [a stimulant which keeps one alert] and smoking hashish – and alcohol,” Mr Hassan says.

A very interesting read – especially since these morons have recently hijacked an oil tanker.

    We actually have our cargo ships take the longer route to avoid these pirates. Seriously…
