and Somalia doesn’t have a choice as to who will profit off the further plunder of their natural resources.
The plot thickens. Who are the real pirates?
- UNITED NATIONS, April 19 — While the international press focuses on the teenage Somali pirates who took the American ship Maersk Alabama and captain Richard Phillips and were killed, Kenya and Norway and the installed Somali government are quietly dealing the continental shelf off Somalia away to the benefit of the former two.
- While the press says Somalia has no government, Kenya with Norway’s and the UN’s behind the scenes assistance has filed with the UN a “Memorandum of Understanding” between itself and the “Transitional Federal Government of the Somali Republic,” ensuring that Somalia will be unable to later object to Kenya’s claim to undersea oil drilling rights.
