I am not trying to justify kidnapping, no, no no..
But the fishing policies of western nations have dire implications and consequences for the already impoverished and vulnerable locals. It is sad.
I'm trying to remember or a pirate attack on a fishing vessel....
Don't get me wrong, I agree that the over fishing problem needs to be addressed desperately but that is an issue for the UN, not pirates.
The pirates have made it clear that they are in it for the money, not social justice. Now if the pirates gave all the money to the government to purchase a couple warships to protect their waters from over fishing? Well then they could say they had a cause (not a right or justified cause mind you) but they are taking the money are living the high life.
