Another Side of the Story, Perhaps

For a while now, I've been reporting on the Somali pirates and the international response to the threat. Okay, I haven't been reporting so much as I've been linking to news stories.

At any rate, I just came across an investigative report that claims that the pirates of Somalia aren't as bad as the Western media makes them out to be. In fact, there may be just cause for their attempts to drive shipping out of their waters.

The article is entitled, pointedly enough, You Are Being Lied to About Pirates, and appeared both in the Independent and The Huffington Post.

It is most certainly worth a read.
