Somali Pirate Update

Aaarh, Matey!

Two more of the scurvy bunch were rounded up by Puntland authorities yesterday when they came into town for supplies (like duh!) but the crew and ship remain under their control. Spooked by the arrests, the remaining pirates have hauled anchor and are now headed for an unknown destination.

There is no word on the status of the US warship heading to the area.

Newsbusters has a great piece up here ripping the BBC's intellectually dishonest hooey on the situation in Somalia. A sample of their hooey:

Islamic rule was a stabilizing force in Somalia.

Oh, and about those Pirates? You can bet cash money they aren't of the Mennonite persuasion...
