Just a thought on whats the biggest story in the news at the moment.
This latest cargo ship was delivering aid to the poorest people of Somalia [attachment=7095:somali_pirates.jpg]. [attachment=7096:ship.jpg]

Sorry about the small pics but you must know by now that I don't know what I'm doing.

Yeah here's a story on it:

QUOTE

Pirates caution against US rescue



Somali pirates holding US Captain Richard Phillips hostage have warned that the use of force to rescue him could result in "disaster".
The pirates said they hoped to transfer him to a bigger vessel, as US and other naval ships made their way to the area.

Full story

It's quite an interesting event, they should definetly have protection on these ships imo.

^ Yeah those things carry millions upon millions of profit aboard them you would think the owner of the vessel would use the small change to employ a couple of security guards.

It's a shame one died in that rescue but its gotta be mighty hard to sneak up on a small yacht in open water without being seen.

This is a very American question I know, but do these pirates speak English? Or do the people on the ship speak Somali?
Who translates who?

I think its pretty obvious what Somali Pirates are after when they hi-jack ships these days (ransom money) so translation will probably only be needed once negotiations begin.
As for the language I think arabic is their main language although they do have their own Somalian speak.

I think that at least one of them knows english, they have to be able to give commands clearly... and pointing guns and grunting is amateurish, and it doesn't appear these guys are armatures.

Yes, because anyone who doesn't speak english is an amateur.

Protip: Somalia was a British colony. Googling it tells me they've not been independent for half a century. I'm sure some Somalians speak English.

Yes, but I am sure there are plenty of boat crews that don't.

Somali speak at a basic level, English (British), Swahili, Somali, Arabic (with some Farsi) and usually Ethiopian. French is really common too. And yeah, that's going to be about everyone of them you meet, because all of those languages are commonly spoken. I added Ethiopian/Amharic because we're talking about pirates, and they often practice on them for fun.

There is no solution that hasn't been tried. Africa is a country that cannot be helped.

Yes, that is correct. Especially when they are targeting English speaking vessels. Awe, Psycho thought he was making a point... maybe next time.

Which they aren't, they have also tried to hijacked Chinese vessels but of course that wouldn't make American news, because all America really care about is itself, as proved here.

You can't debate known facts, well you can but you just end up looking like an ignorant idiot as proved here by you tarring the whole of Africa with the same brush.

As ignorant as it is, I will say that saying Africa is a country that can't be helped sounds better than Africa is a continent that cant be helped.
Even though most people, like yourself, would catch that he called an entire continent a country, they'd still get the gist of what he was saying.

No, anyone worth talking to about the subject would think he is an idiot, as there are plenty of perfectly nice places in Africa.

You can quite easily just refer to the country as that is what this topic is about.
