Part three in an ongoing series exposing globalist stunts foisted upon humanity at the cost of our lives, our livelihood, our past and our future. Click here for previous “Globalist Stunts.”

According to CNN a South Korean fishing vessel was hijacked early October, 2010, by Somali pirates. It was supposedly off the coast of Lamu, Kenya, a city lining the Somali-Kenyan border. This isn’t the first foreign fishing vessel hijacked by Somali pirates. This year alone, Thai and Taiwanese fishing vessels were seized as well. Over the last decade the captured crews of fishing vessels caught by Somali pirates off their coast could double as a “mock UN” assembly.

International fishing fleets sail from around the world to plunder Somalia's lawless shores.

And while the mainstream corporate media sensationalizes the freighters being hijacked, ships being victimized simply for ‘passing by,’ mentions of captured fishing vessels are glazed over, explanations as to why vessels are caught half-way around the world from their home ports are absent, and the concept of “illegal fishing” is buried deep within articles. Certainly it would be difficult to explain why a South Korean vessel is fishing over 6,600 miles away from its own shores.

Indeed, the very genesis of Somali piracy was illegal fishing off their shores. According to “War is Boring,” foreign fishing fleets representing a multi-billion dollar global industry have been muscling Somali fishermen out of their own waters since 1991. But what does “War Is Boring” know? They are just “citizen journalists” after all, and besides, CNN and Fox News say the Somali pirates are terrorists, even in league with Al Qeada.
