Islamists say they’ll fight Somali pirates: Financial News – Yahoo! Finance
A radical Islamic group in Somalia said Friday it will fight the pirates holding a Saudi supertanker loaded with $100 million worth of crude oil.
Abdelghafar Musa, a fighter with al-Shabab who claims to speak on behalf of all Islamic fighters in the Horn of Africa nation, said ships belonging to Muslim countries should not be seized.
“We are really sorry to hear that the Saudi ship has been held in Somalia. We will fight them (the pirates),” Musa told AP Television News. (via Islamists say they’ll fight Somali pirates: Financial News – Yahoo! Finance)
The last time …
In Afghanistan, countries tried to fight the Afghan battle – and what we had was the Taliban. In Europe, the last time (too many last times actually), in the Balkans, in Croatia, Bosnia et al, we ended with ethnic cleansing. The Somalian group’s decision to fight against the Somalian pirates is an excellent idea.
