Pirates

“We just saw a big ship,” the pirates’ spokesman, Sugule Ali, said in a telephone interview. “So we stopped it.”

“We don’t consider ourselves sea bandits,” he said. “We consider sea bandits those who illegally fish in our seas and dump waste in our seas and carry weapons in our seas. We are simply patrolling our seas. Think of us like a coast guard.”

Probably the best quote of the week. The thing about pirates is that their innate ability to conjure up the image of a self righteous and noble defense force of the weak. Brings back the nostalgia of the ages of the privateers.
