No Parrots and Peg Legs — Real Pirates Are Everywhere!

Yesterday, pirates captured a Basque tuna fishing boat off the coast of Somalia. Four armed pirates used a grenade launcher to overtake the 26 crew members on the Spanish boat.

Last year, pirates seized 25 ships off the Somalian coast. Earlier this month, pirates held hostage 30 crew members on a French luxury yacht. After the crew paid a $2 million ransom for its release, the French authorities apprehended the pirates, and they were charged in French court. How do you say "arrrrrrr" in French?

Somalia's poor excuse for a central government cannot control the 3,000-mile coastline. Victimized countries, like France, are forced to take on the pirates themselves. But, even though the US navy patrols the international waters, they are still extremely dangerous.

Do you think a movie about real-life pirates (and not Jack Sparrow) would be as successful, considering they are a result of lawlessness spawned by a humanitarian crisis and political chaos?

I would find a story about real pirates interesting. Probably moreso than the last two POTC films, which were yawners to me.

At the height of the Pirates of the Carribean craze I wanted to be a Barbary Pirate for Halloween but then I figured that not many people know about the Barbary Pirates so no one would get it. It is good to know that all kids who saw the Pirate movies and said they wanted to be a pirate when they grow up will have a career path.
